Buses more frequent but still tight on space
Commuters glad of extra buses in govt scheme but say 'more, please'
COMMUTERS are reporting shorter peak-period waiting times after the Government put 250 extra buses on the road.
But crowding and a lack of seats remain a gripe.
Over three days this week, The Straits Times spoke to 60 commuters taking services 72, 106 and 922 between 7.30am and 9am. These three routes are among the 111 to get more buses under the $1.1 billion Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP).
Most commuters agreed they did not have to wait as long for buses since the scheme started its roll-out last September.
