    • The rear of the demonstrator Citaro (SMB136C), flanked by a batch 1 production unit on 852 (left) and batch 2 production unit on 855 (right).

      There are only minor differences between the demonstrator and production batch for the rear- SMB136C has grey aircon pod & "tailfin", batch 1 has a white aircon pod and grey "tailfin" while batch 2 has a white aircon pod and "tailfin", along with an additional third brake lamp fitted on the engine cover.

      You very sure??? You mean having all the bus services that are wab? The sentence is poorly phrased.

      Then you're wrong. St.michael and YCK oso have all bus services that are wab.

      3010C meant every bus in BSH is a WAB

      (which all svc at BSH have only Wrights, CDGEs, Taros and KUBs, nothing else)

    • SBS9810X is the sole Volgren bodied Super Olympian to be equipped with a Transit Media electronic signage., seen here with its new display format that uses the standard "> Destination" template.

      It is also the only chassis to be built in the UK, and be assembled in Australia - and was the sole Volgren bodied Super Olympian to be equipped with an electronic signage until the installation of LECIPs on the rest of the Volgren bodied fleet.

      You very sure nothing else?

      Then explain why 55 got VO/B10TL perm and 56 got VO perm

      Btw, SBS8900B(involved in accident in 2011) is at the scrapyard now. Bus still bears the ad and it wasn't repaired.

      Info from clawed transport. 

      I don't claim any credit like SMB388S

      Even if he phrased the sentence wrongly, but he is only referring to 'bus interchange'. St. Michael's and Yio Chu Kang have only bus terminals.

    • ...that services 88, 143 and 147 are tied as the services with the most amount of Volvo B9TLs in their fleet? (24 in total)

      ...that service 88 has the largest fleet of Volvo B9TLs for a single-controlled service? A whopping total of 24 Volvo B9TLs have been added into service 88's fleet within 6 years. A whopping 13 WEG2 B9TLs were added to service 88 within 7 months.

      88/147 totally needed, not pampered.

      143 totally depends on whether 30/51/79 ahead or not. Can be totally packed or empty depending on which bus comes first.
