Remember how you used to love taking long bus rides as a kid? Well, now, you can live for those moments again.
In a report by Channel News Asia today, 10 SMRT buses will be equipped with USB charging ports, and the new update on these buses will be rolled out on Thursday. Each bus will have 41 USB charging ports that will be located at the inner seats of the bus to encourage passengers to move in.
The 10 new double-decker buses, run by transport operator SMRT, will be deployed on five bus services – Service 61 from Bukit Batok, Services 67 and 985 from Choa Chu Kang and Services 963 and 969 from Woodlands.
The new initiative will also see these ports at the wheelchair bay on wheelchair-accessible buses.
This is also in line with the decision to reduce the number of cars on Singapore roads.
Buses featuring USB ports were first showcased to the public at the inaugural bus carnival organized by LTA earlier this year. Two concept buses with various features were displayed to garner feedback from commuters on which features they would like to see on public buses in the future.
And no, you don’t have to pay S$400 or be charged to court when you use the power plugs. This initiative will be available for free, so rejoice, everyone!
