      Easy to implement. Make 127 full fleet SD and move those DDs to 129.

      127 weekdays 2 DD others SD (High demand during morning peak hours from Blk 742A > tampines int) 

      But weekends can use full SD. Super super low demand 

      Change to:

      Freq: 8 -12 mins (peak hr) 

      Freq: 20 - 30 mins (Off-peak and weekends)

       

      129 fleet can still remain maybe additional  DD during peak hours  as the demand come from students travelling from TP - Bartley / Toa Payoh or Toa payoh / bartley > TP

      Weekends 70% SD and 30% DD demand abit low

      Change to:

      Freq: 7 -9 mins (Peak hr)

      Freq: 10 -15 mins (off-peak and weekends)

    • 117 today quite full for SD 

      27A can consider using DD as 27A comes 3 buses and usually full to the max

      117 deployment is okay la.There is always a DD behind SD slot.Off peak and weekends loadings is quite bad.

      27A should be renumbered as 27M Hougang Central-Tampines Int-Hougang Central.

    • 190 is running at 03 minute interval with 40 DDs and 4 SDs. 

      700 is getting more and more DDs. Can spot anywhere between 5 and 7 DDs everyday. 

      960 also has now all DDs and no bendies. Upto 23 DDs, 7 SDs.

      961 also got 2 more DDs. Now operating with 5 DDs.

      972 no change 29 full fleet DD.

      All city to BPJ side services are getting good improvement from SMRT side with high frequency and DD pumping.

      190 definitely has more than 4 SDs now... at around 7pm, there are easily at least 3-4 SDs back to back towards NBR at Steven's Road area. One SD on 190-190-27, and after a couple of buses, another SD. Around 730pm, there is another SD at CCK area towards NBR...

    • 48 - got 1 SD -> DD conversion, now plying with 4 DDs... need another 6 conversions... hopefully in due time.

      56 - Lost one DD, but got a SD fleet add. Good move to improve frequency while removing DD which is not quite needed on this service.

      64 - got 1 SD -> DD conversion, surprised to see 64 get an upgrade.

      94 - SD fleet add

      124 - got another SD fleet add. This service really needs DDs asap.

      130 - got 1 SD -> DD conversion.

      131 - got SD fleet add

      153 - got DD fleet add (good move). Lot of long distance travelers

      165 - got 1 DD -> SD conversion

      185 - got 1 SD fleet add

      195 - got 1 SD fleet add

      * Not sure all of the above are correct, but should be.
