One thought on “New Year’s Eve 2018 – Public Transport Operating Hours

  • 31 December 2018 at 2:06 PM

    Is very foolish to have the NR 1 2 AND 3 last bus at 0200 when your train operate till 0215 from city hall to jurong east .Total waste of resources when most of the commuter prefers to take the last train rather then the NR which journey is long and fares is higher $4.5. I personally took the NR 2 before the whole journey hardly any passenger board the bus along the stretch of clarke quay going towards orchard road.The nite owl extended timing makes more sense .
