Can Bus pooling be alternative for your commute in Singapore?
March 24th, 2020 | NEWS
In recent times, especially for the fighting measures of COVID-19, the government has been emphasizing the needs of social distancing.
Every workday, millions in Singapore use trains and buses to get to their destinations.
Measures soon leading to transportation
From a big list of containment measures ranging from border closures, entertainment center closures and social distancing measures on food and amenities centers, it seems there's still one area of the crowd that has yet to be addressed, which is public transport.
Will social distancing be implemented on public transport? It may somehow seem like a tall order now as there are quite a lot of various factors to be considered and many parties would have to chip into initiatives such as staggered work hours, alternative work location arrangements, etc.
