    has any 1 feel that the bus are not getting newer but its just the same old bus, eg all the type of newer buses but the rate of changing is slow.

    i just feel that the bus are built to restrict people , after all i see a lot of grown up trying to squeeze leg into the seats, even when i seat i got to slang my legs to fit in , also i dun get to seat in bus with head rest that supports my head , the max is only up to my neck , very tiring 1 ley ,

    the mgmt has never seat in bus since a long time , cannot blame them , but they should really review it .

    " She had lost her EZlink card and was told to pay $1 for the journey home the first time she took a bus. She had been taking this service for the past nine months and had been paying $1 each time she took it.

    On Sept 10, she boarded bus number 13 at bus-stop B16 Upper East Coast Road at around 2pm. She was told by the driver that she had to pay $1.30 for the journey home. Unfortunately, she did not bring extra money and told the driver.

    The driver dropped her off at bus-stop B02 Marine Terrace. Stranded with no money, my daughter had to walk all the way home. "

    No money ? Off you go !

    I agree with this. Singaporean teens/young adults are larger now than the 60's. I'm 1.9m and have much trouble sitting in the seats.

    Unfortunately, that's that for u.

    "Got money take bus. No money u walk."

    The driver or the ppl in-charge would prolly be thinking, "Hey, she already got a lift up to the point where her $1 would take her. What more she want?"

    And what's that we hear the last time about promoting a 'gracious society'?

    She and her parents can write an episode in Full Circle on how she had a brush against the law and how sorry she was with her despicable criminal behavior and how she grew up to be a model train commuter in the end. Maybe earn some money from the story rights and break even with the fine.

    Alas! It's all the girl's parents fault actually. They failed to discipline their daughter properly and hence leading to the downfall of this daughter.

    Who knows ? Maybe after her story got published, SBS would offer her a lifetime free ride on all SBS buses she takes hereinafter? Equally good deal also you know

    Jailing fare cheaters may not be effective as a publishment as some people consider going to jail as a "confined holiday".

    I would suggest they are made to drive bus for a month.

    how come no law to penalise whatever company/organisation/authority that implemented a faulty EZlink system that overcharges commuters?
