Ms Tan, a Childcare teacher who lives in Tanglin Halt exclaimed, "I've waited 40 minutes for Bus Service 61!"

Stephanie Loh, a Strathmore resident commented, "Bus Service 32 Take Years to Arrive!"

MyQueenstown's Reply: For residents and friends of Queenstown who took public buses to work places or school, it is inevitable that at times, the waiting time for some buses, particularly the SMRT bus services, can be atrociously long. 

In May 2007, Singtel and SBS Transit launched Iris NextBus service to notify commuters on the arrival time of the next bus. Commuters can SMS:

(Bus Stop Number) space (Service Number) to 74744

A return message will inform the commuter when the next bus as well as the subsequent bus will arrive. Residents will walk to the front of the bus stop to look at the bus stop number. 

While SMRT did not launch such service yet, residents may consider the above option while taking SBS Transit bus services.
