      The balance might goes to SBST Seletar 

    • I wonder if other operator beside SBST wins Clementi package,Svc 48 would be reroute or cut short to Changi Business Park Ter?

    • What's not right with the BCM packages?Can you guys named a few?

      For me,TTS control 96,282,284 & 285 when SBST clearly can handle that.

      TTS should take 30,30e,174 & 174e instead and be a tenant at BNL Int.

      GAS control of 136.GAS should take 29 and start from CVT and loop at Tampines.17 should be SBST control.5 should be GAS.84 should be extend to Compassvale in exchange for 117 instead.

    • Whoever prepare the packagr screw loose lah. 196 better off in Clementi and 197 more at home in Bedok. 30/30E also can go over to Clementi while 55 moves to Bedok and 100 gets taken up by Serangoon.

      14, 51, 61 and 67 should be operated by more than 1 contractor due to their length. 136 should have been swapped for 109. Serangoon can have 73 instead.

      Agreed,It should based on how long is the distance for home ground.30/30e most of its journey served South and West,It would be sensible if TTS or Clementi control.33 should be Bedok since more than half of its journey is within East.55% of Service 5 routes is within East also.14 & 51 should be under Clementi package unless LTA plan to cut halves in future.

      Possible given time in future.

      If GAS control Tampines then what about East Coast Depot?Bedok North also have leh.Its more to grassroot concept.GAS can control East bound PGL svc & Part of Tampines..More like tenants for Tampines.

      PGL:3,34,43(43M withdrawn),62,118 & Feeders.

      TAM(Tenant):19,29,39,81.

      All bus packages are like industrial attachment programme. 30/30e starts together at Bedok and cannot anyhow split where it will be left in a lurch. 14/14e is also from Bedok together.

      You have to wait for DM3500 de-registration of the last 50 buses. SBS 329 helps in the opportunity of converting at least 4 - 6 buses to double decker fleet.

      Industrial your head la,Ppl talking about the efficiency and importantly mileage.For 143 i can understand that 143M start from J East hence LTA included into Bulim.Ulu Pandan to Bedok vice versa isn't too bad compared to Bedok-Clementi vice versa.7 should be under Bedok.

    • Got offer from green/white co..Distance from my Tampines home to the West side isn't really a problem cause i ride motorcycle to work..As a back up i also track the employee bus timing and worse 2 worse ask my spouse to drive me there should I encounter bike breakdown.Im do perm Am shift for svc 3,but as standard procedure newbies should deployed as standby BC doing Am,PM or even split shift which i hate it anyway.The person in charge says to endure a few months before applying for perm svc or shift..

      Ive passed my medical test,Worse to worse i might just stay put at my current company although its sucks

      You got poached by TT? I remember last time you referred to them (more like their WA-based sister) as Mongolian bus operator.

      By the way, TT got the contract for Albany on the WA south coast recently. They were already operating in the southwest resort belt of Bunbury-Busselton.

      Sgwiki lor,3505B also spotted at Jurong East..Wahlao anyhow whack only.

    • Seriously why do GAS need to control Punggol and TTS operate those 4 Clementi svc??Lydep to PGL int takes around 10.2km and an average of 17-22 mins and Budep to Clementi Int is around 9.6km takes about 17-20mins..Why can't just take some of Tampines svc like 4,19,29,39,81 and also 5 & 21?

      Budep can be tenant at Boon Lay for svc 30,30e,174 & 174e..
