From Dec 17, commuters may request via their smartphones to be picked up and dropped off at any bus stop in Joo Koon and Marina-Downtown, under a six-month trial by LTA of bus services plying on-demand routes.

In August, the LTA announced the award for the second phase of the trial to SWAT, which entailed the development of hardware and software solutions for the on-demand bus system.

Commuters travelling along the Marina-Downtown route, and the one between the CBD and the east, will have to download the BusNow mobile application developed by SWAT.
