Feeder buses to run more frequently during peak hours

Feeder buses to run more frequently during peak hours
Posted: 21 April 2008 1327 hrs


SINGAPORE: The Public Transport Council (PTC) has set a new service standard for buses running feeder services, stating that 85% of such bus services should run at intervals of no more than 10 minutes during weekday peak hours.



This is from August 2008, and a year later, 90% of SBS and SMRT buses that run feeder services must adhere to this 10-minute standard.

The one-year period to ensure that 90% of feeder services run at no more than 10 minutes is to allow bus operators to increase their pool of buses and drivers.

The PTC said the latest mark is over and above the existing standard which requires eight out of 10 bus services, including trunk and feeder services, to run at 10-minute intervals during peak hours by August 2009.

The move is part of the Quality of Service (QoS) standards for basic bus services introduced by the PTC in 2006.

During the six-monthly review of services by bus operators from June to November 2007, the PTC found that while both SBS and SMRT were able to meet most of the QoS standards, there was room for improvements.

This includes the need to have better connectivity by buses to the public transport hubs and the number of passengers ferried. - CNA/sf
