  1. One common behaviour of motorcyclists is how they always tend to lane split while riding. Furthermore, these riders lane split regardless of their level of experience on the road. Watch how an inexperienced p-plate rider learn his lesson the hard way: What Happened? The accident occurred at the Punggol Exit of the TPE, involving a Go-Ahead bus and a p-plate rider along with his pillion. Many vehicles were forming up for a right turn at a traffic light when a p-plate rider decided to lane split his way to the front of traffic. Unfortunately, the inexperi
  2. We all have relied / are relying on public transportation to get around our sunny little island. For most of us, before getting that driving license, the 2 door Mercedes (front door+back door ) used to be our mode of transport growing up. Was reading up on the different types of public buses in Sg and realised that we used to have a much less homogeneous range of public buses in the past, so I'm just posting a few to bring back memories and keep them alive! Do feel free to add on and share your fond memories of the buses in your life, and the memories associated with them :) Mods

  4. SINGAPORE — The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded a contract totalling $1.03 billion for the Bulim and Sembawang-Yishun bus packages to Tower Transit Singapore (TTS). The five-year contract will start progressively from the second quarter of 2021. If TTS were to perform well over the period, the LTA has the option to extend the contract term by another two years thereafter.

  5. SINGAPORE: An SMRT technician died on Sunday (Jun 6) after being pinned under a bus he was repairing. The technician and another worker were injured while repairing the mini-bus at the Automotive Services commercial repair centre at Ang Mo Kio depot on Sunday. The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said that it received a call at about 9.45am for assistance at 6 Ang Mo Kio Street 62. SCDF took two people to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital. One person had a serious head injury while the second person complained of chest pain, a spokesperson said. READ: Supervisor, worker die afte
  6. Need a new chair for your home office but don't want a Secret Lab chair like most people do? Check out this very familiar-looking chair that you can now buy at a starting price of $100. Thanks to a local company that specialises in scrapping vehicles, you can now own a part of our public buses that have been prowling our roads for the last 10 or more years. The company, Kim Li Huat, posted this simple and sleek Volvo B9TL CDGE chair that has been blessed with a new base on their company's facebook page, saying that if you wish to buy in bulk, the price even can be lowered.
  7. Do you know the story of David and Goliath? Well, if you don't, long story short, it's a story of a small boy who defeats a giant man with nothing but a slingshot. We have a Singapore version. Let's take a look at a short clip of a food delivery cyclist engaging in an argument with a bus driver driving a SBS bus. Unlike the David and Goliath story, no slingshots were used but, in true blue Singaporean fashion, lots of pointing and cursing ensued. This incident makes me think of the upcoming movie of Kong vs Godzilla (not a sponsored post. I really want to watch it thou
  8. This design will encourage commuters to move to the rear. LTA to begin rolling out three-door double-deck buses in January These buses have a second staircase as well as an additional exit door at the rear, features aimed at improving the flow of commuters. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/lta-to-begin-rolling-out-three-door-double-deck-buses-in-january-13937108
  9. I want to get this off my chest. Why do people not move back in the bus? As a frequent bus traveller, I want to explain why it is not so easy to move back. If you look at the below picture, you realise this is standard for SMRT buses. So why do people not move back? 1) With no space to put the foot under the chair, it is impossible for people to stand behind the other when standing at the back. Hence, people can only stand in a single file. Unless they are very small. 2) With the upraised end at the end, people cannot stand on it safely when the bus is in motion. From the o

  13. Most of us must be cursing and swearing when the alarm clock rang this morning, as the weather was perfect for sleeping in thanks to the morning thunderstorm. We have almost no doubt that the BMW driver in the following photos must be really angry with himself too! The following photos have been in circulation around social media platorms since the morning of 13 May 2020. Not much is known about the cause of the accident but the it did occur to us that this crash happened between Kallang Road and Geylang Road. The wet roads caused by the rain in the morning might have
  14. A Gojek passenger has shared on Facebook that a driver kicked him out when he realised that he was not getting a tip from his passenger! Joseph Lam, the Facebook user who encountered this bizarre incident recounted this incident in which he had touched down at Changi Terminal 1 and human traffic was heavy at the airport. Naturally, that lead to a surge in prices of private hire services. Happily after 10 minutes, he managed to get a driver with Gojek for $14 that was headed towards Tampines Street 34. Upon getting in the car, Mr. Lam felt that something was off with the driver. Below

  16. SINGAPORE - Bus driver Saw Cheong Seng did not pay much attention to a bag that a passenger handed to him on Friday morning (May 10) while he was driving service 63. He gave it a quick glance and saw stacks of paper inside, which the 59-year-old thought were betting slips. But after he completed his round at the Eunos Bus Interchange, the senior bus captain was stunned to find the bag had two stacks of $100 and $50 notes, each several centimetres thick. The money in the bag added up to $39,602.10. The passenger, who handed the bag to Mr Saw at around 8.40am at the bus stop across the s

  19. Yesterday was in a bad mood due to CO being *ahem* un-cooperative in the morning as we need to rush down to Changi by 9am. Later, I was at Tampines Mall with CO and after shopping there, she wanted to go Ikea Tampines. Being new to that area in Eastern part of Singapore, I look up Google map and memorized the direction given. Drove out Tampines Mall and supposed to drive along to avenue 9 then 12 before heading to TPE but ended up turning left somewhere and drove straight into Tampines Bus Interchange. Was finding it strange at first when I noticed people queuing up orderly and buses e
  20. The school bus driver thought the 11-year-old boy had fallen asleep in his seat. But when he tried to wake the boy upon reaching Maris Stella Primary School yesterday morning, the Primary 5 pupil did not respond. He was later pronounced dead at the KK Women's and Children's Hospital (KKH). The New Paper understands the boy was on his way to school when he became unresponsive. The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) received a call at about 6.55am yesterday and sent an ambulance to the school. Police received a call around the same time yesterday asking for help "at 80, Bar

  22. Read on zaobao this vintage STC Nissan Diesel bus was found abandoned at a scrapyard for years. The authorities spent 6 weeks sourcing for parts and restoring it. The axle and wheels are the hardest to find. This vintage bus will be featured in a bus exhibition next month. Didnt know this 1960 bus still exist in singapore! pic credit to busesingapore
  23. Here’s an article by Mr David Mason, an ‘ang moh’, who lives and works in Singapore for several months a year. He’s been here for so many years that he even remembers what public transport was like in the days before the MRT was built, and when there was no air-con on public buses *gasp!* Singapore’s come a long way, now there’s integrated transport hubs, sheltered link ways. And much of our public transport system now cater to those who are less mobile, e.g. wheelchair accessible public buses, green man plus which gives more ‘green time’ to seniors and those with disabilities. Our public tra

  25. A 17 year old Malay teenager stole a private bus at Woodlands Industrial Park E3 yesterday morning at 9am and took the bus for a 155km joyride around Singapore - CCK, AMK, Toa Payoh, Yishun, Boon Lay, Whampoa, Telok Kurau, East Coast Park, Jurong East, Corporation Road, Kian Teck Road and Bukit Batok. An employee of the bus company only discovered the bus missing at 2pm. Luckily the bus has a GPS installed and the location of the bus tracked down very quickly. The bus was eventually recovered at a bus stop along Bukit Batok. . News from xin ming 17岁少年涉嫌偷窃私人巴士“环岛游”,驾了巴士6小时,全岛东西南北都走透透,从兀兰先后经
