    very idiotic, dun they know that some passengers on board are rushing for
    time ??!!

    i think i get down and run also faster than the bus
    Yeah! Think they have schedule to run the buses but purposely take off earlier to avoid the arrows! So drive slowly... Damn.

    the worst kind of experience i had was on a hot sunny day, perspiring all over, waiting for a bus along a busy street, expecting to cool down in the bus. never knowing, the bus i boarded is like a sauna. the aircon is on, but the aircon seemed to be only working at its minimum, air is stuffy and sitting down just makes things worse. and strange thing is, having a fair share of rides on sbs and tibs, it happens most to me on sbs buses.

    I hope all buses in Singapore will try to learn something from Japan transportation services. They will arrive on time most of the time & leave on time too. So, if any of you people late for the bus, you might as well catch the next ride. Or you will be delaying other people precious time, right? If you are late, than that's what you are asking for. Don't blame others, right?
    (There goes the same if you are on the escalator during rush hour. Stand/ keep left if you are not in a rush & give way to those who are rushing. Unless you have no concerns to others at all. And I'll called this people as assh--e).
    I also hope that all the buses will have a thorough clean-up (esp. the interior) after certain days of servicing the commuters. Because I really feel disappointed to see that it really looks like sh-t after you've board the bus. Sometimes, you also can even see tiny roaches too.
    I don't really put this blame on the bus driver cos they have to drive for hours in a day & that's tiring, you know? We, as a commuters must also play a part to keep the bus clean whenever possible if we bring our food stuff on-board on the bus too. Try not to eat & drop any food on the floor as this may cause smell or attract roaches as it decomposed. For drinks, try not to spiled any cause this might attract ants or any form of insects to be present.
    That's all I can say for now & hope we do our best to make things better in our life. Thanks to all dude & dudest. Cheers...!

    I definitely prefer TIBS for the simple reason that the buses travel faster without compromising (i think) on safety.

    I actually don't think it's the driver's fault that they have to travel slow or deliberately slowing down before a green light or driving into the bus bay even tho no one wants to alight or board. They have the schedule to stick to and cannot arrive too late or early at any bus stop. They have to justify deviations from their schedule. At the end of the day, they just want to collect their pay and stay out of trouble (like u and me).

    Want to blame, must blame the company. It's easy to figure this out. You lengthen the schedule, run less trips per day, save on diesel and fill up the buses. Maybe even skimp on non-essential maintenance (that explains the aircon). At the end of the day, it's just business economics and nothing else. Understand that commuters are always in a rush? Come on.

    I am not so sure if SMRT's buses are that comfortable with their film seats. Riding in the back of a speeding articulated bus can be quite an experience for my bum!
