  1. I remember from a 1999 Translink guide that 59 goes from AMK to Jln Kayu (under TIBS). Then the 2000 guide stated that 86 goes from AMK to Sengkang (under SBS). I believe the altering to Sengkang happened during the renumbering to 866, since it is logical that 864 and 865 also started from Sengkang as well.
