Slight change to SMRT Premium bus service 587 October 13, 2008

In what seems to be a move to stop buses running the 587 from making tedious u-turns at the junction of Woodlands Avenues 5 and 6, SMRT will be rerouting the service to call at the bus stops opposite the current ones along Woodlands Ring Road, turn right into Woodlands Drive 63, and another right turn into Avenue 6 before continuing its journey along Avenue 5.

So much for “as part of our service improvement efforts”.

The poster can be viewed here: http://www.smrt.com.sg/buses/documents/services_updates/Svc_587.pdf One mistake spotted: Premium 587 should now be running non-stop along Woodlands DRIVE 63, not Drive 52.

Despite buses being able to reach Fullerton by 0845 hours every morning, SMRT chose not to change the timetable, which might serve as a convenient backup in case the bus gets caught in some unexpected traffic congestion along the expressways.
