Transit in Singapore

Recommended Posts

Nowadays, both operators SBS Transit and SMRT Buses are hiring the bus driver outside Singapore due to lack of people who is willing to join this profession, they're hiring the foreign drivers from Malaysia and China PRC, I just watch the video from Channel News Asia and look at the chart for the salaries at between drivers from China and drivers from Malaysia, I found that China PRC drivers are lower than the Malaysian or even the Singaporean drivers~~
