Our son flagged down bus 166 on Mon and the China-born driver took a right turn at the AMK Ave 1/Upp Thomson Rd junction when he should have turned left. Ended up in Sembawang Rd, from where he called us on his mobile. Said he decided not to alight between Yio Chu Kang Rd and Mandai Rd as the stops there are too quiet, with an industrial area opposite. Also said some of the other passengers (including one on his way to an important meeting) threatened to report the driver to his employer.

:| :!: aren't the SBS bus drivers trained? Would have expected an SOP for such "lost drivers". You mean no GPS? :stupid:

I'd demand a refund for my bus fare on the 166 AND a special bus to come and pick me up to my original destination. Poor guy on way to important meeint, and your poor son!

This happens sometimes and it could be the drivers are not familiar with the route. There was once when DS1 took a bus which did not turn in the direction of his school. Luckily, DS1 was alert and bold enough to go up to the driver and tell him that he had gone the wrong way. :rotflmao:
Another incident was when a driver drove straight into a narrow road towards a park instead of turning into a main road. Imagine how the driver struggled to get out of that place as there is no way he could do a U turn without any difficulty. :shock:
