  1. My dad just passed away and his ashes are put at Choa Chu Kang Columbarium but when I google, I notice there is only 1 bus service 405 operating the route from Boon Lay Interchange.
    I am puzzle and wonder why Columbarium is around Old Choa Chu Kang and there are no bus service operate from Choa Chu Kang Interchange.
    Singapore are having the 2nd largest rapidly aging population in global context but our public transport efficiency has not even reach that level of completely. A deeper Insight and foresight of aging Singaporean mindset need to be address and what solutions to offer with quick time completely.
    For the aging, the faster a infrastructre is completed, the better for them as their time is running out.
