1. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has put up the third bus package in Seletar for tender today.
2. The Seletar bus package comprises 24 existing services and two new services which will be announced closer to the commencement date. The bus services will be operated from Ang Mo Kio, Yio Chu Kang and Yishun Bus Interchanges, and will be supported by the new Seletar Bus Depot located off Yio Chu Kang Road, which is scheduled to be completed by the third quarter of 2017.
3. The package consists of about 420 buses, growing to about 500 buses in 2023 in tandem with new developments and projected growth in ridership.

In the new Era of transport, nothing has changed, at least visibly. Disruption still a regular, and perhaps the bus is slow and safe...
