      Never in my mind crossed that Wldep will have B9TL in their depot.

      For Wrights, there are 591 in total for both Batches 4 and 5 (128 left). As for Citaros, I am inclined to believe that at least 330 have been bought for Batches 3 and 4 (estimated 40+ left).

      Based on my definition, yes. These are the ones purchased by LTA on top of the existing orders in July 2014.

      Nope. These should be SBST's purchase. LTA's purchase should in substance includes 1001-1071 and 1691-1699.

      GA should introduce 2 DDs on svc 386. Make svc 3 - 50% DD, 83 - full fleet SD, 85 - 50% DD. 

      (Just because it has so many DDs I think DDs on svc 3 are better because you have long distance travellers).

      Svc 3 doesnt need too many DDs in my opinion.I used to drive all GAS svc except 136.

      Since GAS adopted the jump bus system for majority of its svc,therefore changes has to be made to reduce fuel wastage.New duty also occured alot of dead mileage.Examples:After reaching Punggol have to off svc back to Tampines...

      My suggestion below

      Svc 2:Maintain full DD of 24 buses

      Svc 3:13 SD and 6 DD,Am shift is 21 buses and 18 for PM.Definately have to cut 1 bus and add more break time and slightly reduce off peak runtime.

      Svc 6:5 DD and 2 SD...

      Svc 12:20 DD and 5 SD,Change from current 19 DD & 6 SD

      Svc 15:Am shift 19 buses and 17 for PM,Why not 18?

      Svc 17:Maintain..7 DD & 7 SD

      Svc 34:Am 16 buses and 15 for Pm,Should add 1 more bus.

      Svc 36:Maintain,Now 18 buses for Am and 17 for Pm

      Svc 43/M:20 DD and 6 SD should be okay la,Ever tried SD during peak hours at most onky a few stops my bus is full but not till front door also.

      Svc 62:15 DD and 3 SD should be okay..

      Svc 82:Definately need fleet add..Am 8 buses while PM only 6 buses and have to wait till peak hour xover from svc 84😤

      Svc 83:4 DD 4 SD is more than enough...Waste of resource,even SBST laughing at this.Where got long distance travellers?

      Svc 84:Should be change to feeder 384 and fleet of 3 buses is good enough.

      Svc 85:10 DD 4 SD

      Svc 118:Full fleet of 17 DD is needed

      Svc 119:7 SD 2 DD and the 2 DD should be on split duties,Weekends all SD fleet

      Svc 136:2 split SD converted to DD..Weekends also maintain 2 DD for the famous jam.

      Svc 354/358/381/382:all maintain 

      Svc 359:Can trial 2 split DD..PSR Int to st 51 got good loadings.Route also justifed for DD.

      Svc 386:Need one more fleet add.No need DD

      Svc 403:3 for weekdays and 4 for weekends

      Svc 518:9 DD 5 SD should be great.

      SG5438B-SG5440T are for svc 118 fleet add

      Anyway i dont think GA will anyhow take buses which they do not need.. every bus they use have to pay a ''rental fee'' to LTA..

      6-7 of them are in AMDEP since last week... so guessing 2 for sv25, 2 for sv55 and 2 for sv58?

      so the balance rego 5160-5175, 5453-5545 and 5611/5612?

      5486 and some other new B9 are spotted inside Volvo Workshop in BRBP recently.. seem like most of the B9 have completed their assembly...

    • Originally posted by SMB315C:

      so from last june till now, SMRT took in 98 B9 + 64 A95. = 162 DDs..

      transfer away 40 E500, deregister 29 bendies, so net increase in HC buses = 93... but still no DD on 851...
