I’ve always been the last person on the bandwagon when it comes to downloading productivity apps/apps that help save precious time and make life a little more efficient. Ironically enough, it’s been my parents who’ve been hounding me to get an app that will tell me what time the bus is going to arrive, as I always end up missing the bus. As such, I almost always find myself sitting in the sun at the bus stop for half an hour! Which, well, is a massive waste of precious time ‘COS I COULD BE WASTING PRECIOUS TIME IN THE AIRCON INSTEAD! Okay but on a serious note, I’m sure that like me, you have found yourself in a similar situation manyyy times before. Ever since I found SG BusLeh, my make up is no longer melting off my face, and I’m no longer wondering when on earth the next bus is going to arrive. Yay!
Random fun fact: SG BusLeh has also been featured on Channel NewsAsia before, which is so cool.
SG BusLeh is the first bus app in Singapore to:
- Introduce the actual current physical location of arriving buses
- Showcase the arrival timings for 3 buses! Previously, bus apps only showed arrival timings for 2 buses.
- Inform users of the type of arriving bus (e.g. double decker, bendy bus, etc)
- Provide arrival timings for NUS and NTU shuttle buses
- Provide SMRT train timings
- Allows users to tap their EZ-Link card on the phone to check the remaining balance (on supported devices)! Personally, I think that’s so useful. You’ll never need to worry about how much money is left on your card and whether you need to top it up!
SG BusLeh is honestly so simple and easy to use that it’s definitely worth checking out. The search tool is really user-friendly and intuitive. You can insert postal codes, bus numbers, addresses, and bus stop numbers! You can even rename your favourite bus stops for convenience (or laughs).
The Singlish on the app is also extremely hilarious. For example: “Aiyo! This bus is either still in depot, or still close to the depot lah. Don’t gan chiong.” So cute right?
SG BusLeh was developed by none other than Originally US, a Singapore-based mobile app development consultancy. Originally US specialises in researching, designing and developing top-notch and easy-to-use mobile apps! Originally US is at the top of the game really, being one of the very best in Android app development in Singapore. Some of their well known clients include: online fashion retailer Zalora, media company Mediacorp, as well as insurance giant, AIA.
There are several bus apps out there that have pretty useful features, but SG BusLeh is the original app that introduced many of these super cool features before anyone else in the industry. And I think that is a testament to how trend-setting and innovative Originally US is!
SG BusLeh app is super useful and definitely worth a download, whether you are a frequent user of public transport, or find yourself using it only on rare occasions. Oh, and it’s available for both iOS and Android
When you need to know what time the next bus is arriving (for example, if you’re a a bus stop without a bus arrival timing display screen), SG BusLeh is your trusted friend in time of need. SG BusLeh allows you to plan your trip well in advance and gives you a clear idea of when to leave the house to catch the next bus. You’ll never miss (or have to run super unglamorously after) a bus ever again :p
