      Actually 12 can be full DDs also with a mix of A95.

      210 SD and 212 DD,I do the tally almost every mornings and park those buses and yet when more feeder SDs breakdown in a day,Have to wait for other SDs to comeback for split break.

    • take 969 this sunday at Tampines Int, this bloody route still as bad as before with the number of man single deck buses.. many ppl choose to wait for next buses once the seat as fully seated. (even though the next bus is 20min later)

      At last,I hope not one off thing..184 should use OC500LE and B9TL.

    • With the existence of MRT shuttle 15 that operates between Clementi Station and Beauty World Station that the route almost fully duplicates service 184. The latter is cleared to use DDs as proven.

    • For Service 184, a mix of DDs and bendies will be good enough with a small number of rigids like OC500le and MAN a22.

      I would prefer the fleet will be like 11 B9TL & 5 OC500LE,Like it or not it's a trunk service.Even Svc like 3 most ppl board it for a few stops but again LTA cannot afford to see many bendies deployed for trunk Svc.

    • But clementi Mrt bus stop would be a dreadlock for 184 if use alot of DD

      184 bendy can unload n load faster than 52/154 DD there for the tertiary students.

      Nvm about fast unloadings,LTA will consider the space that the bendy takes...And also 184 runtime is too relaxed...Some BCs purposely doesn’t want to move off even there’s no alighting or boarding activity to kill time.

      Weekend deployment is majority A22 with a couple of OC cameos.
