Bus stop no.: 30081
Bus stop name: Brickland Road,B02
Time Started: 11.45Am
Time End:12.45pm

Based on your observation, what is the profile of the commuters during on a typical Friday, between 11.45 am to 12.45 pm.
Senior citizens and Middle-aged Adults.

The challenges i faced is that during the whole time, i was very,VERY bored and the buses that were stopping at the bus-stop thought that i wanted to board and stop but i did not want to actually. I felt awkward

If you were given a 2nd chance to capture data again, suggest at least ONE way to improve the process.
I would bring something there to do to spend my time.


  1. Can you tell us more about the Senior Citizens and Middle-aged Adults?

    Based on your observation, where are these middle-aged adults going to this hour? (Are you able to make any inference?)

    For Bus Service 172, use http://www.smrtbuses.com.sg/ebusguide/busguide.asp (which is available in the Google Site), key in the number. The frequency of the bus is there.

    With this information, using the first bus you recorded as the reference, you would be able to work out the expected time of the subsequent buses.

    You could do the same for the other bus service :)

  2. The middle-aged adults seem to be going out with their friends to a place to eat and shop.
