      they will give to SBST... budget 2017 need to cut by 2%... they cant justify paying 10-15 million per year more to operate this package.. they already pay 50 million more to TT...

      50 million can use to buy 100 DD buses... or built another new depot...

    • From LTA Facebook page:

      "Under the BCM (Basic Chinese Medication), LTA is able to set service standards so that our public bus services can be more responsive to commuter needs. And so from Sep 2016 till end 2017, you can look forward to enhanced connectivity with a total of 14 new bus services!"

       

      Someone list down the bus routes that were launched since September 2016 until now. Minus that from 14, and that would be the number of bus routes to be launched from now to year end.

    • BUS CONTRACTING MODEL IMPROVES BUS JOURNEYS FOR COMMUTERS


      News Releases
      3 Mar 2017

        

      • About 60% of bus services are less crowded
      • Average additional wait time reduced by about 15% for 108 services
      • Four new bus services introduced, another 10 by end of 2017

      1.  The public bus industry completed its transition to the bus contracting model in September 2016[1]. Under the bus contracting model, LTA determines the bus services to be provided and sets the service standards. This enables bus services to be more responsive to changes in ridership and commuter needs. 

      Less crowded buses, more reliable bus services, enhanced connectivity

      2.  As a result of the bus contracting model, commuters have been enjoying higher service levels.

      3.  All bus services now have scheduled headways of no more than 15 minutes during the morning and evening peak periods, with half or more of them having scheduled headways of no more than 10 minutes. Feeder services are running at even shorter intervals of six to eight minutes.

      4.  To achieve this, an additional 86 buses were deployed to improve more than 100 services between September 2016 and January 2017. Compared to the same period a year ago, about 60% of bus services have become less crowded during peak hours.[2] Commuters are enjoying more comfortable rides.

      5.  Bus arrivals have also become more regular, with the Bus Service Reliability Framework[3]imposed on bus operators as part of the bus contracting model. For the 108 bus services that are being assessed on Excess Wait Time[4] under the framework since September 2016, average additional wait times have been reduced by around 15% over the past five months. Instances of bus bunching have also decreased. Of 16 bus services which are being assessed on On Time Adherence[5], seven have shown improvement in their punctuality. As the remaining services are gradually being included into the framework, commuters can expect further improvements to bus service reliability.

      6.  Since September 2016, four new services have been added to the bus network, with two more to be introduced by March 2017 and another eight by the end of the year. Together, these 14 new bus services will enhance connectivity in areas like Ang Mo Kio, Bedok, Bishan, Bukit Batok, Bukit Panjang, Hougang, Punggol, Sembawang, Sengkang, Tampines, Toa Payoh, Tuas, Whampoa and Yishun.[6]

      7.  As our rail and bus networks expand and ridership patterns evolve, some bus routes may no longer be as heavily utilised while demands for new routes may emerge. We will continue to review and make adjustments to bus connectivity, in order to appropriately balance the need to optimise resources with commuter needs.

      My predictions: AMK: Fast service to Sengkang West Way. Bishan: Pretty interesting leh, maybe to TPY Lor 8 side? BBT: Also very interesting, maybe some express service to NE towns? Hougang: Svc to Buangkok Cres via Buangkok MRT? Tuas: TWE lor. Yishun: Feeder to St 51/52 or St 20/21/22, would prefer the latter. On a side note, LTA never mentioned PSR, so will there be 68?

      Bukit Batok (943)

      Bukit Panjang (973)

      Hougang (323)

      Punggol (381)

      Sembawang (883)

      Sengkang (373, 374)

      Tampines (127, 129)

      Toa Payoh (129)

      Tuas (247, 248)

      Whampoa (129)

      Bolded part: I wonder is there a need for AMK-Sengkang West Way service? 50 already serves Sengkang West Ave in close proximity, and not to forget that most Sengkang West Way services are still under-utilized.

      It will be good to connect Sengkang West to AMK Ave 3. Don't forget sv 50 is running packed for those sectors.

    • my guess for future SEM route - to PSR/ Changi Airport (very unlikely)/loop at WTC (to complement 856?) 

      all other route guesses similar to sbs6750e
