As we all know, the MRT’s are not very reliable due to the breakdowns and now most Singaporeans like myself are relying more on buses which is why SGBusLeh app comes in handy!
I believe for most singaporeans we have more or less ran after a bus before and of course that includes myself! Previously when I used to take the bus to work, I would either miss the bus, or have to wait for a long time before the buses arrive and worse, I remember chasing after buses!
Good news for those who hate chasing, missing or waiting for buses as the SG BusLeh app is here to rid us of the agony.
Developed by local mobile app development consultancy, Originally US, who’s one of the top mobile app developer in Singapore which specializes in designing and developing amazing mobile apps that look and feel great, this app is going to be one of the highly used apps I believe!
Firstly, it is Free Of Charge (FOC) so it doesn’t keep you from downloading it for free and trying it out to see if it works for you.
You don’t have to sign up an account to use it which I like because most apps these days require you to sign up before you can start using the app.
And not to mention the app really stands out when I am using my phone because the app is RED in color.
Very clear labelling of bus stops so you know exactly which bus stop are they referring to and which bus stop are you at. You will never need to ask strangers awkwardly which bus you got to take to arrive at your destinations.
It tells you which buses each bus stop has, the exact waiting time of each bus and which buses are handicap friendly. It also indicates if the arriving buses are double deck or bendy plus, LOST? You can search for nearby buses and bus stops.
It brings on the singlish jokes while you can ‘stalk’ physical location of upcoming buses on a map (instead of relying on just bus timing).
You can search for buses by the place, bus stops or best, bus numbers!
And who doesn’t like freebies? Get freebies under their ‘LOBANG’ tab.
Oh and you can tap your EZ-Link card to check balance using SG BusLeh (on supported devices) so you no longer need to awkwardly exchange coins with strangers to take the buses.
If you are on a bus, Busleh can notify you when your are arriving at your destination stop so you can inform your friends of your Estimated Time Of Arrival (ETA).
You can also favoritise your buses according to the frequent buses you take
Last but not least, they have SMRT train timings too so that you can organize your trip better if you need to change to trains during your journey. Oh and even better for NTU & NUS students because they have your internal bus timings available too but sadly it is currently ONLY available on Android. Hopefully they release it on iPhones soon!
Honestly everyone should get this app because it is useful for commuters like us who hate running after buses. You can download this amazing app over at google play store or Apple store!
