Another week @ CBP and few more complaints from my colleagues who end up late due to this morning rain.
I did some complaining couple of weeks back on the lack of public transport facilities to CBP here, and just realized that even the LTA website Publictransport doesn't show all the premium bus services to CBP. So I started watching around me and given my little work load (thanks to the early CNY holiday mood) I end up with below table.
Most of these buses end up @ the same place at CBP. Also I didn't updated the return trip but they are available in the evening around 5.30 ++++. If you are one of those lucky guys / girls staying around Sengkang you can find plenty of buses till 9.
Also most of the buses accept Flashpay cards or the new EZlink cards. By the way in my observation the old SMRT Creditcard (EZ-Link) failed to work. So better keep some cash :).
Try to take the earliest bus (you need to wake up few min earlier) as these buses tend to be crowd free. The last buses or peak period buses are pretty busy and often I see people standing (??) which is not allowed as per LTA. But seems people prefer to stand for 30-45 min rather than getting squeezed for hours in MRT.
Also take note of morning traffic jams along TPE (Now a days it seems a MUST between Jalan Kayu to Pasir Ris). So give some buffer if you've options.
On top of these services, there are plenty of small buses or vans carrying 10-15 people. May be these are adhoc services or kind of carpool or vanpool services.
I'l update as and when the latest info is available or if I see some new services.
Happy traveling :)
