But can you nom your noodles on the bus? @Roger Smartbus about 15 mins. Normal bus about half an hour. Good Idea to have a bus stop next to a food shop or cafe while you are wating for the bus. You can also use the toot in the cafe if they have them. At least they’ll have well-maintained seating and shade for the commuters. That sure beats standing next to a rusty pole That noodle shop could totally advertise “cheap noodles while you wait – for the bus!” They might not have the best sense of placement, but would highly recommend that noodle shop! Is that really still a bus stop? Looks like some recently formed concrete guttering where the bus would have pulled in… @Viv, I’ve had their Singapore noodles; was good. @Grant, yes, the bus stops just in front of the tree. They have a surprisingly tight turning circle for moving out from the kerb. Mind you, you’re right, the divider bit didn’t used to be there; perhaps the sign should be moved a few metres.
