      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?

      There was once 979 full fleet SG plate perm, earlier than 969.. I think around late Aug the 2 B9TL (5050K 5064X) perm alongside the 7 perm MAN (1700U - 1706D)..

      Currently got 920 using mostly SG plate MAN from 979/M

      46 took use of former BNDEP lovelihood buses (3788S or 3818P). Overdue buses are also used for service 23 and 46 (3839D or 3841X).

      134 and 150 might be even using 8301E or 8319E, or any bus from the Loyang-based transfer.

      969 after redeployments now got no problem liao. Only one bendy in preparation for the Tampines Concourse Bus Interchange opening. The only thing is that it must be 100% WAB.

      Fyi 969 still got 8008L. When 969 was transferred to LYDEP, it got perm IB buses like 1027A iirc.

    • Recently in my area (north), noticed something interesting. SMRT been using SBS buses? 

       

      As this are still SMRT service number driven by SMRT staff but the bus is clearly the purple and red SBS buses. Quite confusing thought I took wrong bus. Anyone knows why?

      Ya, due to BCM, SMRT has been forced trashy and sub-par SBST buses down its throat.

    • all 160 and 170 buses have this notice pasted at BC cabin which says "only Singapore currency is accepted when bus is in Singapore", so does it mean we can pay RM when bus is in Johor LOL!

    • What's the point, if they are only copying other people's posts?

      Glad they finally got tired of it. 😊

      Hi mr carbikebus, don't think so. I think they pursue other interests. Cheers. Thanks.

      It was alway like this since 30-40 years ago.  In JB You can pay RM. But if you are transferring to mrt/bus in Singapore, might be better to pay via ezlink.

    • Are 903M & 912M WAB services? One stated that it is wheelchair accessible at launch..
      Based on their deployment for both Feeders doesn't look like it is..

      What's more the berths signage never indicate any "WAB" logo for both services..
