26 SBS buses stuck in JB due to Malaysian bus strike
SBS Transit says 26 of its buses from Services 160, 170 and 170X were stuck in Johor Bahru this morning due to the strike by the Malaysian private bus operators.
To prevent more buses from being stranded in the jam, it says services into JB were halted at about 8am.
At close to 9.00am, the first bus of Service 170 that was stuck in JB finally arrived at the Woodlands Checkpoint.
SBS Stransit says with the easing of the situation, there was partial resumption of service with alternate buses entering JB.
By 10am, normal service resumed.
It says alerts were put up at affected interchanges and on its mobile app to inform commuters of the situation while staff were deployed on the ground to render assistance to commuters and Bus Captains.
The public transport operator says it'll continue to monitor the situation with the Land Transport Authority and will take necessary measures, as required, to ensure our bus operations continue to run as normally as possible.
