The thing is I am perfectly ok with the MRT. Its much faster, and I dont care if its a few cents more expensive. The problem is that is has 2 main shortcomings:

1. Lousy operating hours. It stops earlier then the buses, of coz.

2. I end up having to keep getting to the MRT station to go anywhere, but my link to the MRT is terok enough. Dosent that make me more pissed?

Haha...transportation is always an emotional issue. Especially when it costs too much compared to how much I am getting.

Referring to me? Or am I just being oversensitive...hahaha...

Yah sometimes when I take the train at 7.30 the train comes every 2 mins. When I am at the bottom of the escalator the train leaves. When I reach the platform and walk to the centre of the platform another train arrives. Cool.

At the bus stop at HarbourFront, I wait up to 15 minutes for a bus. Then when the bus comes, all the bus that I can take to school all come, 97, 100, 61, 166.

MRT = Frequency (2mins to 8 mins)
Bus = Usually More Direct (Yishun to Changi Airport 30 mins more or less)

BELIEVE ME, thats ALL THE INFO there is. They are apparently still conducting their research into the matter. Understandable. Think it will be up only after 2010 cause there isn't a critical mass of buildings throughout One North as yet. The PMS was supposed to serve the entire One North District. So building it now is like building another Punggol LRT.

Anyways understandable too that it might be a tram though its not confirmed cause no point sparing so much expense on an elevated LRT when the area is not as dense as lets say a HDB estate. And I think its smaller by a bit too. So a tram system is both fine and its a new type of transport mode in Singapore so I like it.

Yup I guess if they ever built a tram system, that's the only place where we see it in Singapore??

MRT = Air Conditioning Excellent Always, Frequency High, Great View On Elevated Sections, Fast, Cool? haha, Less Pukish Feeling When I Take It

Bus = Jerk jerk jerk I want to puke. Air conditioning depends on whether the bus driver turns it on one hour before passengers board and also depends on the weather, slow as compared to the MRT if travelling on the same route. Tight seats (Cramped I mean).

But then again I love TVMobile...haha (Sue me!)

I HATE 10. Everytime I arrive at 7.05 10 comes. And once I accidentally boarded it thinking it was 100. So paiseh. Was reading something what so blur blur.

100 all those services is frequent occasionally, but they LOVE to come all at once, so when I miss one I miss all.

13.00 or so if I take from home, Yishun.

8.00 or so if I take from Bishan Station.
