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

      That makes sense since Perth has them too

      Perth doesn't have any B5RHs at the moment, the Perth demo, 2245, is now in Wollongong on the other side of Australia.

      Some of AMDEP BCs say the acceleration is too slow..LTA logic.

      11.4m somemore,Might as well trial 10.2m midibuses that good for svc 11,84,317,403..No need to worry about tight roads low volume etc

    • Which route is the fastest way by car/bike from Tampines St 21 to Bulim Depot?

      nice suggestion, but i guess lta would never ever bother to implement

    • Continue from press release 2016 thread, just curious, is it necessary for 825 to extend its operation hours with the withdrawal of 529?

      And what was the history of 825? I rembered it was shortened or smth and there was more these "minibus" services serving areas like teacher's estate and springleaf area but were withdrawn due to low demand?

      Why was 529 is introduced? Was it to provide public bus services to Lentor area on Sat aft and night?

      Finally, with the opening of Lentor station in 2020 (or 2021/22 if the lta or buliding contractors somehow cock up smth again), would 825 still be relevant?

      Thanks for your ans as im really curious. Sorry about the long post >~<

    • Hi, a question for all here. Is there currently (or was there ever) a bus service that has a perm fleet with all SG-plated buses? If there are a few, which is the first of those?

      I was thinking perhaps 969, when it was handed over to LYDEP I recall the fleet consisted of just SG-plated Citaros and MAN DDs (were there perm SMB/TIB buses assigned to 969 right when 969 was handed over to LYDEP? Correct me if I'm wrong about this ...). Then later on small adjustments were made, with SMB 8008L joining the perm fleet as an example, so now it's not a full fleet of SG-plated buses.

      Any more such examples?
