Bus drivers in Singapore draw a low salary at around S$1,800 and they have to work overtime exceeding 50 hours a week. Fatigue is the most common symptom for transport workers like taxi drivers and bus drivers in Singapore. The recent participation of 2 foreign bus companies have raised basic wages by as much as 20%, pressuring the existing duopoly SMRT and SBS to increase drivers’ benefits.
