  1. There are route limitations at Telok Kurau Road, Joo Chiat and last do not least is at Upper Aljunied Road which where 155 goes.

  2. This service 155 is confusing. Drivers don’t show whether the bus is going to Marine Parade or Toa Payoh. At least show 155T or 155M to identify the destination.
