Foldable Bikes Allowed On Buses on Certain Hours

Singaporeans wanted to bring their bicycles to work. Some of them has foldable bicycles that are compact and can be carried along on buses. However there is a regulation that these bicycles are not allowed on buses except on weekend and public holidays. Bicycles are great form of exercise and especially when they can use it to cycle back home by alighting at stops before their home destination.

Well, the new regulation will be eased from the 22nd of September onwards, on a Monday. Singaporeans are allowed to carry their foldable bikes into the buses during weekdays from 9.30am to 4.30pm and from 7.30pm to end of the services. The peak hours are omited because during this time the buses are crowded and it may be dangerous for these bikes when cramped with the bus passengers.

Hopefully when these regulation takes effect, those who have the bikes with them practise courtesy and understanding and not block the path of the passengers and the aisle way. It needs lots of giving ways from both sides in this situation.
