      I hope smrt remains consistent with its DD deployment and doesn't take it away again or reduce number. What they should do is reduce number of buses that they have mindlessly added.

       

      Make it 16 buses with 10 high capacity - good enough. 

       

      5073S bunched with 1241Y, and 5899B bunched with a citaro..

      Bunching as usual after adding the DDs..

      Bunching is getting more common after adding the DDs.. 

      The issue is more with the # buses. When you operate with 19 buses, it is designed to bunch as frequency is 02-03 mins. 

       

      Likewise for 911. Even if have no DDs, spotting 3-4 buses bunch is common everyday. 

       

      Hence need to reduce number of buses and create appropriate spacing when you add high capacity buses, otherwise it is waste of resources.

    • Does today also have 5-6 high capacity buses on svc 860? Has anyone observed which bendies and DDs?

      Just dont want it to be 851 case where DDs came for a week, and then went off.

      Too bad AMDEP doesn't take any B9TL,Else candidate for 860.

      12 Citaro and 5 B9TL would do the job.

    • 860 seems to have consistently got 2 DDs, 2 bendies this week (?)

      This means, 860 fleet would look something like:

      15 A22, 2 NWAB, 2 MANA95s = 19 buses. 

      Hope this remains consistent next week also.

    • Does anyone know the timings for DDs on 103 departing NEX and Yishun?

    • On Friday PM, I spotted 2 DDs and 2 bendies on svc 860.

      1. A95 (SMRT livery, didn't see rego)

      2. E500 (3591B)

      3. NWAB (1138M)

      4. NWAB (didn't see rego)

      Any other HC buses on 860 anyone spotted, or is it only 4?

    • Any DD spottings on svc 103 today?

      109 should have got DD fleet add instead of SD or SD -> DD conversion. The loading is quite high on 109.

      116 is merely to improve frequency. The current frequency is quite lousy and buses are late departing Hougang Interchange because they come in late and before the expansion opened, it was a nightmare to find parking. 

    • svc 961 now operating with 4 DDs.

      The loading between Bukit Panjang MRT and Mandai Industrial Estate is v heavy especially during AM peak. Hence, both 960 and 961 have got capacity increase and fleet add to meet the AM demand. 178 too got 2 fleet add. 

      PM demand (515-630pm) is more spread out and usually gets 50-65 pax between Mandai and Bukit Panjang for these services. AM demand can be 90+ pax towards Mandai.

      I think most of 109 routes is parallel with other svc nia that's why only get SD fleet added.

    • 301 should see some fleet add with Keat Hong Crest TOP this month. 983 also(?) but how many more as it is already operating at 05-06 min frequency.
