The number displayed “000”. Eh? Since when did we have service “000” at Boon Lay?
I was curious what was displayed at the front so I overtook this bus and look at the front desto. This bus is is on service 180. Everything was normal on the front desto.

Here is another shot from the back :

I normally don’t pay attention to rear destos and this is the first time I noticed a rear desto with red EDS. SMSed Soon Hup and ask him about this bus. According to him, the bus originally displayed number as well as text asking motorist to give way to buses exiting.
