East coast to City

Post by welshlass » Sat, 21 Jul 2007 3:19 pm

Hi- am currently condo-hunting, and will rely on public transport to get around- are buses reliable here, esp if I choose to live in East Coast? I want to avoid using taxis all the time, also there are times when they are difficult to find, but if there is no nearby MRT then do i have to wait a long time for buses esp in the evenings??
(I am used to the efficient public transport system in HK !)

I am afraid so..that you will have to depend on buses if you are not taking the train, east coast is currently not as accessible by trains, there are a few stations like Kembangan, Bedok, you can consider closer to these routes.

Otherwise, you can also live near a place that offers shuttle services- busplus, they move around Tanjong Rhu, Bayshore Road areas and to Raffles vicinity. (Not sure where you work though).

You can visit these few links for more routes:

Bayshore Park to Shenton Way: http://www.busplus.com.sg/serv_541.asp

Meyer Road to Shenton Way: http://www.busplus.com.sg/serv_547.asp

The public buses in the peak hours of the morning and evenings are more crowded, but again, the frequency is somewhat like every 10-15 minutes to service the peak hours. Normal off peak hours are like 20 minutes intervals?

I think this hasn't changed although I haven't taken a bus for ages.

I think you won't have to wait for more than 15 minutes; of course it depends on where are you going to live, but the bulk of condos along upper east coast road are adequately serviced by buses
