      There's alr no space.

      Was also considering 2 alighting berths outside of the int to reduce waiting time to enter int...

      For CRL, many people are speculating a depot at Lorong Halus for CRLe (CRL East). Another depot will probably be needed for CRLw as well but no idea where it will be.

      Maybe no SMRT office there?

      Occasionally I see one or two SMRT buses parking there, but very rare.

      I believe its a LTA arrangement. Otherwise SBS wouldn't had shifted into the coach park if they had a choice, but they are the smaller operator at Marina Centre, so they had to shift to allow LTA to free up the left lane for normal traffic.

      Once again, that's probably a reason to have a new bus interchange/terminal at either Republic Blvd or Marina South.

      that new coach park dun think can accomodate bendies....further, the left hand side of that road have the entrance/exit for the coach park, so it is not possible to park buses along that side of the road as well..

      Then 171 & 960 should not use bendy buses.

      previously, both services cannot have DDs due to low lying branches.

       

      171 could possibly be shortened to BPJ. As for 960, the lack of DDs might have caused bendies to cover.

      There is a huge deficit of  DDs on SMRT side. That's why 965 gets 2 SDs add instead of getting SD-->DD

      sebenarnya, mengapa mereka tidak ingin menggunakan bas dimaktubkan sebaliknya, memandangkan mereka mempunyai begitu banyak?

    • Saya berasa bahawa jika kita benar-benar ingin mempunyai hab dan spokes sistem, kita perlu ada rangkaian yang laluan bas perantara yang di setiap kawasannya Singapura, termasuklah pusat bandar. kita boleh memiliki laluan bas batang yang untuk menyediakan penyambungan bas di merata negara.

      Service 965 cannot use bendies since Sengkang Interchange does not permit it.

      We don't really want bendies into the city area. So services 960 and 171 would need DD instead.

      (Perkhidmatan 965 tidak boleh menggunakan bendies sejak Sengkang Interchange tidak membenarkan ia.

      Kami tidak benar-benar mahu bendies ke kawasan bandar. Jadi perkhidmatan 960 dan 171 perlu DD sebaliknya.)

      If you really want the hub and spoke system, then you would need a bigger bus interchange in all major towns. However, the current Integrated Bus Hubs are far too small.

      (Jika anda benar-benar mahu hub dan spoke sistem, maka anda akan memerlukan pertukaran bas yang lebih besar dalam semua bandar-bandar utama. Walau bagaimanapun, semasa Bas Hab Bersepadu adalah terlalu kecil.)

    • When you land from Marina Bay Sands at Changi Airport, it is really cool, you see:

      - UEC Terminal

      - Changi Bus Park (CBP)

      - Bedok North Depot (really far)

      - Changi Business Park Terminal

    • I would prefer the new Punggol Interchange to be at the other side of the road (The big patch of field)...

      Then it will have the sawtooth and end-on berth... What's ur intake on this?

      As such this should be the layout...

      A: Sawtooth Berth
      B: End-on Berth

      A1 - A3: Alighting Berth
      A4: 50, 382W, 119
      A5: 136, 118, 382G
      A6: 386, 84, MRT NEL Breakdown Shuttle
      A7: 3, 34, LRT Shuttle (East Loop)
      A8: 82, 83, LRT Shuttle (West Loop)

      B1 - B4: 117
      B5 - B9: 85
      B10 - B12: 62

      Fun fact: Changi Business Park Ter is a good place for plane spotters.

      What is the reason you suppose 177 is not going to Bukit Panjang Interchange?
