      That is the thing... Should be on July 29 I think? So should be the same in 1 month prior of transition them into Tower Transit, with those BSEP ones.

      Our GCM/BCM is based off the Western Australia model wholesale. You can ignore that at your own peril.

      To date, there are still lobbyists who haven't given up trying to figure out what are TT's "perm deployments"...

    • This GCM is just another exercise for the sake of doing it only. Just a namesake with not much purpose at all. Cheers. Thanks.

      Yes... But is usually will be LTA to announce those tranches/phases like what Bulim Bus Package is.

    • Of the twelve depots in BCM, we probably already know eight of them.

      The first four is Bulim, Loyang, Seletar and Ulu Pandan.

      In future, two will be built at Changi and Kim Chuan. Another two may be constructed at Lorong Halus and in Jurong, along with the development of the two MRT depots for Cross Island Line.

    • According to the LTA website, the speed limit for a bus is 50 km/h for roads, 60 km/h for expressways and 50-60 km/h for tunnels. The speed limit here is comparable with the speed limit in London and Kuala Lumpur. Any argument about it is not valid.

      You want to fight speed limit dont do it here. Its OT. Kthxbye.

      Anyway, I don't know why any argument is not valid when your own argument, to begin with, is not even bloody valid!

      Check yourself before you wreck yourself! Go to sch kid, holidays are over!

    • Ulu Pandan is more for BBDEP and ARBP services...for Boon Lay services, I would rather believe they will be under 'Soon Lee' package (the packages are named after the depots used) since Soon Lee Bus Depot will still be existent after most of the old depots are demolished...

    • Maybe Soon Lee depot control more of Tuas,Joo Koon and part of Boon Lay Svc..I think Ulu Pandan is more to Balance of Jurong East,Clementi,Buona Vista and Kent Ridge.

      My prediction on Ulu Pandan package:

      Joo Koon: 182, 253, 254, 257, 258.

      Boon Lay: 179, 181, 192, 193, 194, 198, 199, 240, 241, 242, 243, 246, 249, 256.

      Jurong East: 51, 52, 105, 197, 506.

      Bukit Merah: 272, 273.

      Number of routes = 26

      Number of buses = approximately 431.

       

      If this is the composition, there is a good mixture of profitable and loss-making routes. It is likely that the operator would operate, maintain and manage Joo Koon and Boon Lay Bus Interchanges.

      Comfort Delgro (SBS Transit) may transfer its operations at Bukit Batok Bus Depot over to Soon Lee Bus Depot since the latter is newer and Comfort Delgro taxis are using the facility.

      Then Clementi/Kent Ridge/Harbourfront control from where?

      Mandai Depot is also being built, along with the Thomson MRT Line.
