Indeed nothing new, there always remove bus runs parallel to the MRT line and force people to take MRT. Thats why of any breakdown on the MRT, people would be left stranded with no others alternative.

Service 66 to loop at Beauty World from Jurong East Interchange? They might as well they withdrawn this service, served like not much purpose to run such a short route.

For bus, revenue risk lies with LTA.

If LTA cannot break even the cost, taxpayers are paying the shortfall.

but why the need for duplication? you don't see duplication in other cities.

I dont want them to have more reasons to increase fares by saying they need to run more services.

Whether or not they need to run more services, they still have tons of reasons to increase fare de.

I somehow always prefer to take mrt than bus

For me confirmed i prefer to take MRT than bus, since i easily get motion sickness. Since buses always stop and go, stop and go, sometimes it is really making me feel sick. Lol. Also i cannot stand the average 10 mins to 15 mins waiting time for buses. Even 8 mins i also find long.
