  1. Took the service 662 earlier today. Arrived at bus stop after Capital Tower at 9.30 am due to the massive jam at AYE. Just a suggestion, can the bus travel on the lane for buses like SBS buses and the premium service buses on the AYE? If so, then the bus should take advantage of it instead of remaining on the extreme right slow lane and inch forward with the rest of the vehicles.

  2. Dear sir
    The premiumbus services 662 no bus arrival time ser show in business stop or LTA website. This morning I have waited from 735 am 0805am. I decided to take feeder bus to cck interchange to take MRT. and became late to work.
    Very upset
