      So does that mean BM package services like 5 will be fully UPDEP when Pasir Ris int is like halfway across SG? At least 16 and 57 ain't so bad.. talk about dead mileage and wasted fuel sia...

      Arbo den,Worse is 61,66 & 67.

      If LTA allowed lease parking for 61,66 & 67 to park at Hgdep,Bndep & Lydep respectively then it's good

      This is possible as depots are also under LTA, is just whether LTA wants to or not.

      As I said before, even Transperth contractors practice dual depot control. I have seen buses from Southern River perform duties on Route 527 which belongs to Canning Contract based at Canning Vale depot.

      They should introduce 275 back and withdrawn 131M.Svc 123 and 131 no need to enter Bt Purmei..Only 123M and 275 serve there.

      When 605 was withdrawn, 275 should have been amended to Telok Blangah Way and converted to bi-directional. Use green and white plates like 225, 243, 382 and 410.

    • Routes 62, 103 & 123 are gross mutations of their former routes, with 62 having the shortest portion of original untouched route (Sims Ave/Kallang MRT to Aljunied Rd/Merpati Rd).

      In contrast, Route 2 has the longest stretch of untouched original route as it forms its current route.

    • Services 42 and 92 were formerly known as M2 and M1 respectively. Service 150 is the modern version of M4.

      They should change the corporate culture before changing logo.

      would 825 be considered as orphan route from yio chu kang HAHA

       

      would 852 be considered as orphan route as yishun is technically not under SBST?

    • Technically 852 is an orphan route too as Yishun is under SMRT although SBST is majority there.

      825 is like 868 in a way. 852 and YIS feeders are like 96 and CLE feeders.

    • Woodlands Depot is the only Depot doesn’t  have any Citaros for BCM standardised fleets.

      Its the only SMRT Depot which doesn’t have OCs too.

      Go-Ahead doesn’t have any A22 as BCM standardised fleets.

      Tower Transit doesn’t have any A95 as BCM standardised fleets.
