In recent times, I have come to appreciate the bus service in Singapore. I take a bus from my home to SMU during the off-peak hours. I am able to get a seat on the bus and to update my blog. The journey takes about 45 minutes (including waiting time) and the time is usefully spent on reading or blogging.
We need to make it more convenient for people to know how to find the right bus. We also need a way to tell the commuter about the number of the approaching bus, using an electronic display, so that they do not need to strain their eyes to watch out.
Perhaps, the bus services can announce their schedule of arrival times at each bus stop. And they should try their best to keep to the arrival times.
