Summary

The main aim of this report is to present the main ideas of providing Internal Shuttle Bus Service so as to make it more convenient for students to travel around the campus. Data for the report was obtained through a survey, from reliable website sources.

From the survey finding, it was discovered that a huge proportion of the survey respondents travels around SP campus from their own school blocks and the frequency is high. Because of the high frequency of the traveling, majority of the respondents feel that it is inconvenient to travel around the campus on foot, result in late arriving of lessons.

Most of the respondents expressed their interest in using of the internal shuttle bus if there were. On the other hand, for the reasons of those who are not interested in internal shuttle bus, the most popular chosen is that there is no need to provide internal shuttle bus service since the campus is not so large. Money problem is the second most thing respondents take into account.

It can be concluded that having a Football Hub is feasible in Singapore as similar project concepts, albeit on a smaller scale, have already been implemented. The land constraint that is faced by Singapore also makes the idea very practical and appropriate. It is also a lucrative business as Football Hub possesses the ability to generate almost $2 million annually, just from the 2 main revenue sources, which are revenue from the rental of football field and the sale of alcoholic beverages and food at the clubhouse/pub.
