    • 1. Here's a quote from a Service 69 timesheet.

      Weekday 53

      What does the number '53' mean?

      2. Can someone describe on how BC index numbers are usually assigned?

      1. 53 is the number of times the type of schedule that has been reprinted since goodness knows when. When S16 got extended to Bedok the number was reset to 00. New services are also 00 for their first set of schedules before any revision.

      2. BC numbers for sbst are 5 digit numbers. The last 4 digits are assigned to the BC at random. The first digit is where the BC is initially posted to

      1 - amdep
      2 - bbdep
      3 - hgdep
      4 - bndep
      5 - slbp

    • I heard of some annoucements at JRE Bus int which called out ‘2794’ I thought they are calling out the driver of the particular bus. Is it true?

      Here's an example of the same timesheet I'm referring to.

      Index Number: 086 01bn (co

      a) Are 5 digit numbers actually kept a secret to the individual SBST BCs?
      b) How is the index number printed on the timesheet related to the five digit given to a SBST BC?
      c) Other depots not mentioned by you such as BRBP and ARBP are labelled as follows:
      1 - BRBP?
      2 - ARBP?

      Not really.

      The '2794' is actually the index number of the BC called, and is not to be confused with the rego of a particular bus.

      There is no relation. The index number of the timesheet is related to the timetable revision number/depot instead.
      All timesheets from the same service from the same timetable revision have the same index number, so it's nothing to do with BC.

      Thats the short form of BC/SL Company no.We SBST/SMRT use co no(Kong Pai) instead of names.If this BC no is 10355* they will call 0355

      Its 6 digits. The last digit is a PIN number known only to the BC. The middle 4 digits are actually Nth BC to join the depot. Its just that BCs came & left such that there are gaps in between numbers, making them look random.

      What is this PIN for? If someone wanted to hack into whatever the PIN is for, wouldn't be difficult, just try all 10 digits. Laughing

      For some SMRT Buses,If you try more than 4x logon will automatic terminated and BOCC will start to investigate whether the particular SL work or not.But you can chaeck your friends duty on the Int/Ter PC though

      I hope 88 will follow suit.

      S37 gets fleet addition effective Monday 3 Dec 07. Due to this the 2 S293 xovers are removed. the 2 S38 xovers still exist.

    • Some duty codes for 225G don’t use 5x, they use single digit numbers (unless the particular bus is a overnight parking bus). Why so?
