      For all services marked in red, there is no DD restriction, the routes don't justify DDs for the loading is low. I am not sure about 975 as I have never been to LCK Road end.

      84 has no DD restriction at all, don't mention Punggol Road as one of the fleet restriction. 82 has been using double deckers all these while without NEL. With 83, NEL and 147, 82 became SD, no more DD. All the double deckers on 82 went to other services mainly to replace LO2X while the replacement bus, VSO cannot be delivered on time. 81 still SD and DD but reduced double deckers excessively.

      402 does not have DD restriction at all. Marina Coastal Drive has all this while using DD.

      JIS should use majority SD during Saturdays PM and Sundays...But again the peak hour loadings can cover the cost..

      Wonder why they dw modify the carpark sial, then can make DD go there liao. Using full SD rly cmi sia, even on weekends (trust me)

      tbh anyone got any idea why they make that loop at the carpark each trip? Is it just to ferry cats to neo tiew/sungei buloh area?
