Planning the new bus network in Singapore
I read a news report in Today paper about the new network of bus routes to be introduced by the Land Transport Authority. I searched the Internet and found this article which was published nearly two years ago. After that, there seemed to be little news.
I like the following measures:
a) central planning of the bus routes by Land Transport Authority (rather than bus operators)
b) hub and spoke approach
c) better connections and shorter waiting time to the hubs
d) introduce more competition (but the measures are not clear).
I shall try to get more updates or visit the LTA and talk to the planners.
