Ever wondered how our bus uncles/aunties on night shifts get themselves to work and home? This video by SMRT has all the answers to your question.
It’s called the Worker’s Transport, where a designated driver will pick the bus drivers up from their homes at the start of their shifts, and send them home when it ends. It’s like a school bus of sorts.
The driver interviewed reveals that he starts work at 12am, and drives in four shifts: 1am, 2am, 430am, and 530am. He even has the addresses of the other drivers memorised.
So basically, other bus captains send our bus captains home. Which begs the question: do the bus captains then send the Worker’s Transport bus captains home?
