The school bus sector is now more transparent, with parents able to check which operators have been appointed by several schools as well as the fares the operators charge.
This is thanks to the Internet portal set up by the Education Ministry (MOE) in January last year.
The ministry said 31 schools are now using the portal and another 34 will join it in January 2017. It will eventually include all schools.
The website – known as the Information Notice Board for School Bus Services (IBSB) – also allows operators which are not registered with government procurement website GeBiz to bid to run bus services. (Click on arrows in photo to read more.)
