BookmarkSINGAPORE: SMRT is still in discussion with the Land Transport Authority (LTA) about specific measures to limit passengers on its buses, as part of stricter safe-distancing measures to curb the spread of COVID-19, the operator said on Friday (Apr 10).
This comes after a notice made its rounds on social media stating that from Friday, bus captains will limit the number of passengers who can board buses.AdvertisementAdvertisementThe notice stated that a maximum of 10 passengers will be allowed on a single decker bus and up to 16 passengers will be allowed on a double decker bus at the interchange.
"One of my staff put it (the notice) up prematurely for internal reference," SMRT Buses bus operations director Vincent Gay said, in response to queries from CNA."The notice has since been removed."LTA had announced on Thursday additional safe distancing measures on public transport to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Kind of stupid right. Bus 89 is a route that operate from Hougang, Sengkang, Punggol, Pasir Ris & Changi cargol complex. How to accommodate total of 26 pax at any one time for doubledeck during peak hrs? Try taking 89 during peak hrs yourself. Idiots!!!! Please consider increasing the frequency of buses if necessary. Don't wanna wait for hours to board a bus, and be late for work.
Premature after being late for 2 months?!? At this WFH and circuit breaker period, it may works. Once it is normal, do you think safe distancing in bus or train could be complied?
