  1. Bus no 903 TIBS985R. I just went off from the bus.
    There’s so many passengers mostly primary school student and even I sinior citizen were standing in the bus. Very lucky to have F1 driver.
    Should inform ur driver think about passenger safety espcially those who were standing
    Thank you.

  2. This area needs tremendous improvement. Theres always issue of late bus arrival especially during holiday seasons and sats. Due to massive jam near check point area. Not the first time..

    To implement more bus services to these secluded areas.

    Waiting time can be more than 15min!
