  1. Dear Incharge,,
    I’m been wondering since your 120 can loop at telok blangar height, you should extend this bus 120, and loop around Jln bt merah, outram park, kim tian rd to Tiong Bahru market too.
    It has been many years and no even a bus to give the commuters the service of this route.
    They are many of us looking and waiting for this service.
    Hope that you will take this as the serious consideration..
