To enhance commuters' travelling experience, SBS Transit will equip its buses with Wi-Fi from February 2019. This will be enjoyed by commuters travelling in areas like Bukit Merah, HarbourFront and Shenton Way, on bus services number 5, 16, 57, 93, 120, 121, 122, 123/123M, 131/131M, 145, 160, 170, 195, 198, 272, 273, 400 and 402.
SBS Transit CEO Gan Juay Kiat said the company is leveraging on technology to boost its service quality as well as increase the accessibility and availability of information for commuters.
Other new features include touchscreen and digital feedback panels at the Bukit Merah and HarbourFront bus interchanges from Nov 18. These panels provide access to travel information like bus departure times and delays, and allow commuters to provide immediate feedback on the bus interchanges' facilities.
Other features that can be expected in the near future include mobile device charging points, umbrellas that commuters can borrow for free on rainy days, and television screens to display information on community events and activities. Quarterly commuter chat sessions will also be held to listen to feedback from commuters.
