ComfortDelgro rolls out 8 more premium bus services

ComfortDelgro rolls out 8 more premium bus services

OFFICE workers living in five suburban housing estates can now get to work faster with eight more premium bus services rolled out by ComfortDelgro on Monday.

The latest additions bring to 33 the number of premium bus services run by ComfortDelgro.

The air-conditioned bus service halves travel time for commuters, who also do not have to jostle with the morning rush-hour crowd.

The new services are operated by SBS Transit and provide direct and faster connection from five neighbourhood towns - Ang Mo Kio, Bukit Panjang, Choa Chu Kang, Punggol and Sengkang - to the Robinson Road and Shenton Way area.

These services operate only in the morning peak hours and in just one direction from Mondays to Fridays (excluding public holidays). All trips are scheduled to arrive in the CBD area before 9 am.

A flat fare of $3.60 is charged for each trip. There is no concessionary travel but standard transfer rebates apply for commuters using ez-link cards.

Pemium services were introduced to cater to commuters who are willing to pay a bit more for a more comfortable bus ride and yet costs less than a taxi ride.

They are also designed to make maximum use of expressways to offer commuters a more direct and faster journey. They also adopt flexible routing by avoiding areas which are known to be congested during the peak periods.

Mr Goh Gin Howe, 38, an IT professional, who lives in Jurong West and works in the CBD used to take more than an hour to get to work. Since he started taking the premium service last July, he now gets to work in half the time.

'I ride Premium bus service 536 almost everyday from home to office. The service is very convenient and shortens my travelling time by at least 20 minutes. I also enjoy the comfort of a guaranteed seat instead of having to squeeze with the morning crowd on the MRT or normal buses,' said Mr Goh.

Ms Tammy Tan, ComfortDelGro Group Corporate Communications Officer, said: 'We are very encouraged by the positive response to the premium services that we have rolled out. We are expanding our services to more estates so that even more residents can get to enjoy greater convenience and comfortable rides to work every day. We will put on more services if demand continues to be positive.'

To celebrate the latest addition, SBS Transit is giving away 10 dining vouchers worth $100 each in a lucky draw to commuters riding on the new services. These vouchers are sponsored by Etna Restaurant.

In the pipeline too is a new CBD premium service for residents in Bukit Batok which ComfortDelGro Bus is set to roll out in the coming weeks.
