LTA AND TRANSITLINK LAUNCH ELECTRONIC BUS JOURNEY PLANNER
SINGAPORE (27 August 2007) – From today, commuters will be able to plan their bus journeys with the Electronic Bus Journey Planner at www.transitlink.com.sg. The Planner will cover all bus services provided by SBS Transit and SMRT.
By indicating the origin and destination bus stops or bus interchanges, commuters will be able to obtain information on various possible bus travel routes, select their desired travel route, determine the estimated travel time, number of transfers required and fares for each route.
The Planner is introduced on a 3-month trial basis, with funding support from the Land Transport Authority. This is part of LTA's continual efforts to promote the use of public transport and make it a choice mode for commuters. During the trial, TransitLink will obtain commuters' feedback and suggestions and improve on the Electronic Bus Journey Planner where relevant. Commuters are encouraged to provide their comments via TransitLink website www.transitlink.com.sg.
