You know something isn’t right when SMRT is willing to introduce new route 963R from Woodlands to Resorts World Sentosa, but is not doing so for its other successful HarbourFront route.
Yes, I’m talking about service 188 running from Choa Chu Kang, Bukit Batok and Toh Guan to HarbourFront which, like service 963, also has a weekday peak-hour Express variant 188E.
Reliable sources have informed me that drivers from SMRT’s Kranji bus depot (where service 188 is based at) are already learning the route of 188R, which will essentially be something like Express 188E, calling at limited stops along the way and charging Express fares.
Perhaps the company would be using service 963R as a test route to study its demand patterns etc before launching even more routes.
Just what else is SMRT having up its sleeves? All I know is that I’m very excited to find out!
