      Should be 11 SD 2 DD

      Ok so basically 189 got downgraded from 6 DDs, 7 SDs to 2 DDs, 11 SDs. Consistent with my observation 2 weeks back when I spent time in Bukit Batok industrial area. 

      I think it is okay though given that frequency is superb after cutting short the route from Kent Ridge, yet maintaining same number of buses. In my observation, in Bukit Batok st 21/ave 6, 189 comes every 03 minutes due to 189/189A. Opposite direction towards Clementi Ave 1, have bus every 06 minutes. Superb frequency.

      Surprisingly 301 has not got the massive rigid fleet add, instead SMRT has been smart on this one to upgrade to bendies.

    • 172 got one more fleet add, now operating with 19 buses. Got bendy fleet add.

      Peak frequency = 05 mins from both directions.

      Is it because Old CCK Road has more developments recently?

       

    • sv 190 also got another 2 fleet add, operating with 44 buses now. Frequency is at 02-03 mins during peak hours. Amazing for a long trunk route.

    • sv 972 also got another 2 DD fleet add. Now operating with 31 DDs at frequency of 04-05 mins during peak hours.

      Probably because of the Sungei Tengah Lodge dormitory starting to fill up, resulting in higher foreign labour pax during peak hours along Old CCK Rd.

      Not sure. 700 got a DD fleet add, now operating with 18 buses wink.png

      960 got 6 buses added, mostly DDs in the last 3 months, operating with 35 buses.

      Basically, the entire BPJ -> CBD services have got major fleet add/capacity upgrade in terms of DDs. 700 lesser than 190, 960, 972 but still got.

    • Unusual services have got fleet add in this round.

      svc 75 - 2 rigids added (could they have considered upgrading to DD instead?)

      svc 178 - 2 rigids added (fleet of 20 SDs). This should be to improve frequency but not related to loading, as many times buses get stuck at Woodlands checkpoint.

      svc 700 - 2 bendies converted to DDs. Now operating with 4 DDs.

      svc 852 - 1 SD fleet add to improve frequency

      svc 985 - 2 SDs added (to boost frequency)
