Free shuttle bus service between the heartlands & RWS

SINGAPORE : This weekend will see the last of the popular Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) free shuttle buses plying through the housing estates.

In a statement released late on Thursday night, RWS said it was "voluntarily withdrawing its shuttle services in the spirit of collaboration with the Singapore Government".

However, the buses running through the Central Business District, Orchard and Marina areas will continue.

As of Thursday afternoon, demand for the shuttle service was still strong.

Some passengers even had to wait for the next bus.

Passengers at the Bishan and Bedok pick-up points told Channel NewsAsia the shuttle service made it convenient for them to get to Sentosa.

Of the 10 people our news team approached, two were headed for the casino.

The Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports had said the integrated resorts operators "will not be allowed to target the local market or provide incentives in any form for Singaporeans to patronise the casinos". - CNA /ls
