    • i noticed 2 DDs parked at Sembawang bus interchange.

      167 or 980 getting DD upgrades soon?

      the 2 DDs are E500.

      the wrights are on 117.

      981?

      SMRT leaving these E500s in SEBP to waste when 981 was not in operation?

    • Seriously 981 doesnt need DDs,Just add 1 more A22 make it 5 buses enough.Those 2 E500s deploy on 167 more better.

      Have you taken or observed 981 before? I have seen the DDs on 981 getting very well utilized to the tune of 80-100 pax during its operating hours. SMRT is very stingy in deploying HC buses - if it does it is for a good reason.

      SBST on other hand is too liberal with its DDs.

      I do agree that 167 deserves 2 DDs.

      Most times the A95 that do 868 AM trip, will go back to depot and only use as back up after 1 trip. The other A95 on 868 does only 1 AM trip and then crossover to 176 during PM.

      Can do well if converted to loop svc instead of uni directional..6 buses during Am/Pm with freq of 5-7 mins.SMRT got no enough DDs bro..

      This slot should be covering up 858S190's morning trip.. 858S190's timetable has been amended to do SWT 858B..

      Based on my observations for the past two weeks, 256 have DDs running along with 1 citaro and 1 Euro IV KUB.

      They can even take 5 duties from 858 especially for early trips that start from Airport.Other svc that Amdep should minor control is 960,966 and 969..Very useful.882 can give back to Wldep..
