      is it ture that BNDEP citaro are getting their rimcaps back?

      Yes... But the rate that they are fitting the rimcaps on the Citaros is rather erratic.

      Didn't know NR1, NR6 or any RWS services using DD :) By the way, it is possible that NightRider can use double deckers?

      247 demand is quite poor,peak hours also hardly get half full,Should deploy more KUBs rather than full DDs.248 peak hour loadings is satisfactory,Although doesn't require full DDs too.258 can just deploy 50/50 SD/DD

      Don't think they will start deploying DDs on 247 and 248... JIS are kind of forced to be full fleet DDs, and some existing JIS also don't need full fleet DD but LTA/SBST still never downgrade. Exceptions like 246, 256 and 258 exist because they either pass through residential estates (hence need okay frequency) or have really, really poor loading.

      all VO3X Batch 3 died today (counting 9661J and 9670H)....... at most the Eastern District control has become full WAB since. At least SBS9670H will be sent to Dave Rogers again.

      left only DM3500s surviving.

      first WAB for SBS Transit to scrap will be Dennis Trident and VSO.

      the most is minimum EURO 3 (Low Emission Zone).

    • Too bad that I have to use the line when I enter Ngee Ann Poly soon :( 

      Btw what is the best way to get to that poly from Sembawang during the peak hours other than from Clementi MRT if I miss the shuttle bus?
