Plenty of passengers complained about the unreliable service, noting that these sort of major delays has happened three times in the past three weeks as if it’s a weekly occurance.
The same thing almost every week. With so much damage done to the country, at least please maintain the quality of your public transport especially now everyone is back to working in office.— Gaganjit Kaur (@gaganjitk) May 24, 2022
Ok lah. Can use this as excuse to my boss to let me continue work from home this week 😁— Subang kia (@ahchengyii) May 24, 2022
