    I had seen buses, when braking it makes this "Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzz" sound so loud it actually very unpleasant, as loud as those backpack grasscutters. What's more, all the seats are massage chairs as the WHOLE bus vibrates.

    SMRT buses are 100% better.

    SBS bus? Si Buay Sai eh bus.

    Best of all, in Jan, I've once wrote to SBS to complain abt #87, very same bus, abt water leaking through the ceiling during raining. & it was so bad that the upper deck had accumulated a pool of water. Whenever the bus stopped or turned, the water will just splashed, wetting everyone's pants & shoes.

    Don't bother lah. I wrote to them once on a complain and after a few ding dongs they asked me a question which I have provided them in my very first email again. If you write to them you are expected to know and tell them the bus stop number and not where the bus stop is located. Do not tell them things like 'the bus stop outside Esplanade Mall facing Marina Square'. This information is useless, I presume there are at least 10 bus stops that's outside the Esplanade and facing Marina Square. Must specifically tell them the bus stop number.

    In the end they totally ignore my email and no replies were given. 1st class? From the bottom maybe.

    Then I'll tell them - that's what we are paying you your 2++M salary for, to fix the problem.

    If I give you the solution, I'll be sitting there and you'll be sitting here.

    And not to forget their FIRST CLASS DRIVER too!!!

    And please note that some of the buses have the fuel cover on it right back and this cover open and close like a wing on the right front just below the driver area are not properly close. the cover will flip open and close during moving... anyone go too near will put their life at risk.

    There was once, i was on this Simply Buay Sai bus and there was a very strong carbon monoxide smell in it. Gee...it was a bonus. Paid the same amount of fare and get free carbon monoxide. Something must be wrong with the exhaust system of the bus but nobody cares, the bus continues to make it way to the depot with all the passengers, the old, the middle aged and the young. Wonder if there's any adverse influence on the baby in the bus?

    Another incident was worst. The bus was very, very jerky not sure if it's the driver or the bus itself. There was also carbon monoxide smell in it. After I alighted from the bus and turned back, to my shock, there was a fire underneath the bus and there are people including myself who are at the bus stop signalling to the driver but he just drove off thinking we are mad making signals.

    Many of the buses' seats are so closely positioned together, to maximise seating capacity, that if your height is 1.7 m or taller, your knees will press against the seat infront (unless of course you secure the right corner seat with more room).

    If you want to compare the buses themselves, we still lose out to HK.
    The HK double-decker buses are new models and very well maintained.
    Even the 2nd/3rd tier cities in China, the buses have those "ticker" LED panels on the roof that announce which is the next stop, something I've always wondered why it took us so long to have (SMRT buses have this now, not sure about SBS). I think they wasted too much money on that satellite tracking thingie.

    you are lucky if you get even get a seat. sometimes the people are so packed, we have to stand on the entrance steps.

    Yet the consumer still have to pay extra for this "1st class" satellite tracking thingie.

    Now the buses have removed some of the seats so there is less seating spaces, and more for standing. Just so they can pack in more people per bus. Save costs and earn more money at commuters' expense.
