      Just asking, are there any route restrictions that prevent 962 from having DDs?

      NO.

      Please don't make up your own story ;-) like some people did on sharp turn on sv 851. SMRT deployed DDs on 851 for few days just to tell us that is not true. LOL.

      Have excess DDs?? You can count the # DDs they have and the number of services that need it. No need to trust other user. Lot of people talk crap here.

    • I have no idea why Hougang bus interchange expansion (minus the berths) should take more than half a year.

      I hope that buses will be allowed to park in the expansion while the berths and roof are being built.

      Hi mr sbs3004X, you need to see the expected completion date listed which they have already indicated before work starts. 

      Due to safety reasons, buses are not allowed to park while work is still being carried out. Cheers. Thanks.

    • Actually havent board that bus very long already...someone can go check cos I saw them when I was in there

      Mr BA: thats why I said might but oh well. We are still waiting for 167 & 980 to get them anyway. Many SBW residents have been requesting for this since about 2015 but to no avail

      Which route gives you the best views out of the city?

      With so many bendies still running, most of the Smrt services are doing ok with HC buses.  If there is no excess DD, then why on earth they go deploy DD on pm peak trips of 951E/850E whereby A22 is enough to fill the load? These few DDs can easily be transfer to sv 851 instead of just doing 1-2 trips daily.  Maybe someone will say that it is LTA decision. 

      Sgwiki stated that there are around 40 spare DD for SMRT.  Plus another 60 spare bendies.  So why aren't these Spare DD be deployed to those services such as 962/851?

      If they have excess DDs would like to see them more on 169, 187, 851, 854, 969 etc that have way too many rigids running.

      tell LTA to remove those DDs on 850E/951E.. these two services can use bendies since only run few trips everyday...

      and ask LTA to deploy those Spare DDs on 169/187/851 loh... what for keeping so much for spare...

      then use bendies as spare lah... what for put 40 spares DDs, when you ppl are complaining that there is not enough DDs on so many services.....  there is no need for 100 spares HC buses for 3 depots.... 

      SBST got 3000 buses but only 100+ spares DD.. does SMRT need 100+ spares HC buses for their fleet of 1000+ buses?

      I dont think they have that much spare DDs either.Sgwiki also unsure which is which is spare..Nowadays buses do more than one service la unlike SBST.
