Wasteful to spend $68 million on intelligent bus management system

I was very angry when I read the news that the Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awareded a tender of $68 million for an intelligent bus management system. Link. The benefit to consumers is described in this sentence, " With more accurate bus arrival information, commuters can better plan their journeys and travel options."

The foreseeable benefit for an (eventually) unified bus management system comes with MORE (not TWO, likely Incom-ing) bus operators allowed to enter to solve the public transport problems together.

Then the constructive process to our congested traffic on limited road space will be – more public-mindedness, less private-luxury?

Pitiful returns using the piling human bodies approach to GDP growth.

Such wasteful spending to rectify a congested infrastructure might not be needed if the country isn't overcrowded in the first place.

Flood in so many people to boost GDP & now splash so much $$$ - pitiful returns.
