  1. Very bad frequency which leaves a lot to be desired. I thought the change of route would bring improvement but it brought disappointment in the end.

  2. Very bad services. Within 5 workings days, this bus is late for 3 days especially from 8.10am to 8.30am. This is the peak time and I can wait for 25 mins.
