In Singapore, is it legal to
- Bring food or drink onto the bus?
- Eat or drink on the bus?
(I am referring to the public buses, so SBS, SMRT, Tower Transit, etc.)
There is a law prohibiting eating or drinking on the train (Rapid Transit Systems Act) with a maximum penalty of $500. And most people assume this law applies to buses as well.
However, I am unable to find any such law for buses. Googling, all I find are these:
- One website calls it a myth and claims to have called SBS verifying that there is indeed no such law.
- SBS "Tips for Riding" states "4.10 Do not smoke, eat, drink or litter in the bus." But this isn't necessarily a law since those same "Tips" also state things like "3.2 Queue up and board in an orderly manner."
