Bus driver advises netizen to complain to bus company

SINGAPORE: In an appeal to Tower Transit, an anonymous commuter has raised a simple yet pressing concern: the need to address poor bus service standards.

The S’porean posted on Complaint Singapore saying, “Dear Tower Transit, please do something about the poor service standard. Maybe put in place a system to monitor the service ratings for your bus services. Like a touch screen at the entrance or exit of the bus, I believe this will motivate the driver to go the extra mile to greet the commuters and provide friendlier services.”

He added, “Bus captain should keep a look out to ensure they did not miss potential people needing to board the bus and just drive off.”

He suggested that commuters who experienced the same service standards should be given a small token for their poor experience.
