Public bus operators SBS Transit and SMRT have been rewarded for improvments.
SINGAPORE – Public bus operators SBS Transit and SMRT have been rewarded for improving waiting times of buses, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) announced on Monday (May 9).
The Bus Service Reliability Framework (BSRF) trial took place from June to November last year and covered 34 bus services. 27 of them achieved good wait times with regularly spread out bus arrivals.
LTA added that both operators have sustained improvements in reliability through enhanced management of the bus fleet and the hiring of more service controllers.
According to the statement, SBS Transit earned $12,440 per service per month for reliability improvements for 18 services while SMRT earned $12,000 per service per month for improvements across seven services.
In total, SBS Transit earned about $1.34 million while SMRT earned $504,000.
