Somes buses in still do, just had it on SMRT 169 earlier.Originally Posted by Drudkh
Anyway, I will pay anything more (or even via a longer route) to just take SMRT buses. I am not so sure about the smell, but I am sure of the bad attitude the SBS drivers do have. I was on SBS 29 last month to Changi Broadwalk, and on this occasion, there was another SBS bus that almost hit a lorry, and so it halt in the middle of the tiny street. After nearly a minute or 2, the SBS 29 driver start hitting the horn (and hold on the horn) untill the bus finally move another minute later.
I still have not encounter any SBS driver that will greet. I loved the way some SMRT drivers greets, especially after a hectic day, how warm that feels like.
Maybe I had been serviced by SMRT for too long, but I prefer the sound of the engines SMRT buses produced (those nice old squarish Mercedes-Benz or bendy Mercedes-Benz). And I prefer (green led) digital signboards as well.
Not to mention this, a SMRT 963 driver spent nearly 20 minutes to explain the route 963 is taking and telling me about the things I can do in HarbourFront, just as though I am a tourist.
One setback though; SMRT buses uses those blueish-white light, while those yellowish-white light actually appeared more suitable, just as those in SBS buses.
As for the seat, is it really hard? I thought it simply trap dust (those furry-kind, in most Mercedes-Benz SMRT buses). Try hitting the seat next time while you are on a SMRT bus, you will find yourself amongst a dust storm.
