      Maybe. TIB1214B's was a different case since the NWABs are still under SMRT/SBST. Seems like LTA also did not buy over the entire fleet that were registered before 1 January 2016 to SMRT (or SBST) back in September last year, otherwise we wouldn't have seen SMB3548C getting laid up nearly two months after the transition to BCM in September.

    • Accident just occurred at riveria LRT bus stop along Punggol east at 8.20pm 19-03-2017. 1 bus 381 slightly affected. Van hit railings and knocked them down and strayed to opposite side of road. Ambulance conveyed. Should have injured people.

      There are reasons why vehicles are not laid up, take for example, 6145C (Kent Ridge accident) hasn't been laid up even though the accident damage looks serious enough to deem it unusable, and this is from a company who has laid up buses before.

    • The following will not be scrapped:

      SBS34xx

      SBS6418R

      Main reason is because these buses are still too young.

      The following will be scrapped:

      TIB1045Y

      TIB1046U

      Main reason is because these buses are quite old. O405G stopped production since 2003. Hispano closed down in 2013. Then, refurbishment began in 2014 and completed in 2016.

      I failed to see in what way does the example showcased one of the reasons.

      SBST B9 hit passenger pick up point shelter at Bishan Mrt 

      Double decker bus crashes into taxi stand roof, parts of its top scraped off

      SINGAPORE - A double decker bus ran into the roof of a taxi stand shelter at Bishan MRT Station on Sunday (April 2) morning.

      The police told The Straits Times on Monday (April 3) that they were informed of the incident, at Bishan Road towards Braddell Road, at 11.21am.

      "No injuries were reported," said the police spokesman.

      A photo posted on Instagram by user @rayquaza13 on Sunday (April 2) shows the top of the SBS Transit double decker bus severely damaged, with parts of its roof scraped off.

      A contributor to citizen journalism site Stomp said he saw the bus crash into the shelter at 10.15am. It was severely damaged and parts of the bus fell to the ground, he said.

      The bus was reportedly towed away shortly after.

      Ms Tammy Tan, senior vice-president of corporate communications at SBS Transit, told ST that no one was injured in the accident.

      " We apologise for the inconvenience caused," she said.

      Both the police and SBS Transit are investigating the incident.
