And have you guys tried waiting 30-45mins for a bus? 1st class service that is I supposed?

Welcome to Singapore, looks like we're still a pirate colony in terms of public transport.
EVQ, invite Penny Low for a bus ride around her estate la...will make her small eyes

Like I have always believed - 1st World Public Transport (refer to the System in place), but operating with 3rd WORLD Equipment
They are not wrong to say our Transport System is 1st World (is has been for quire sometime now). They never promised with 1st World Equipment (needless to say - Buses...)
The DIFFERENCE is not in the "Cue", it is in the SKILLS...
cool pics ... actually the buses are already generally better. i mean, i used to see roaches running around and freaked out!!!! not all buses like that lah... i'm taking mostly TIBS buses now.. okay leh...
I think all the "1st class" ministers/high ranking officers should be advised take public transport to work during peak hour, or try to flag down a taxi in town area around 9pm-12am for at least once a week, then they should appreaciate on how "1st class" transport system is Singapore.

We should ban our minister from driving their own cars, and use the public transport for 1 week. Let them experience 1st hand their so called world class public transport system. Maybe that will open up their eyes away from those sugar-coated reports they are reading.

Now got different tracking system already. Have been using them regularly on my handphone. Seems pretty reliable but at time can be slow but still better than nothing.
You can at least tell how long the bus will arrive (minus 1-2 mins from the display and you get a pretty accurate time). Interface still neeeds some polishing up especially I don't know why enquiries only on single bus and not more than one at a time.

In my city in England, their policy is 'everyone should have a seat' on the bus. In Singapore, our policy is 'everyone should squeeze'. I think that is not very right. Yes, moving to the back is a graceful virtue, but they don't know that assigning more buses is a better deal than asking people to squeeze. How much can you squeeze? That's the point. Moreover, if a bus is too packed, it can be dangerous in case of an accident.
