      Woodlands need more than CCK IMO. Jz see 912 n 913 alone. 903 added 3 A24 following complaints CCK 300 A22 can meet quota thus i doubt PIW will complain 302 already meet quota 301 also.

      Bro,903,911,912 & 913 all can use DD..Only 900 & 901 need a few A24.Wldep can just take 15 A24 in future..7 for Amdep and 18 for Kjdep.176 & 188 doesnt need bendy with so many B9TL and upcoming B3 A95.SBST already kapo Yishun feeders,850e,851,852 & 860

      983 should use 9 B9TL & 4 OC500LE.

      Let svc like 61,67,176,180,188,190,972 & 985 have a mix fleet of A22,OC,B9TL,Enviro500 & A95.

      IMO, for Woodlands, keep bendys only for 900, 901, 902, 911, 912, 913 and of course 858. And maybe 169A. Rest of the trunks all can use DDs. I go to woodlands very often for work purposes and I must say that in the last 6 months atleast, there has been a decrease in the flux of Bendys and a increase in the number of SD/DD plying this interchange.

      And it is obvious that this isnt working out too well because the jams in the interchange have gone from bad to worse. LTA's logic of spamming SDs to replace bendys on feeders... yeah thats what you get. In turn using more space because 2SDs to 1 Bendy means more space and SDs cant board feeders as fast as Bendies when SMRT staff open up all 2-3 doors for boarding. 911, 912 and 913 with bendysncan just alight and board at the boaring berth and not use alighting berth if they are not the "E" variant to speed up the process and ease the jams. Im sure SD/DD can't fit that well to this option cos in most cases u can only do boarding or alighting and not both simultaneously. BTW, I take 901, 903, 913 often.

      All the services that have heavy passenger alighting activity at the bus interchange, you spam SD or DD, you will cause jams because the ratio of door to length of bus and passenger flux rate is just too low. 3 Door buses can be an exception but still, 3 door DD for woodlands feeders may not be ideal. Most People atm travel 7-10mins on average for feeders and some to a max point of 12-15mins. With Woodlands South and Woodlands North in TEL, these journey times sure go down and in turn lesser people will even go up.

      Trunks like 960, 965, 966, 969 are doing great with those DDs, only to be clogged up by the excessive SDs being spammed into woodlands interchange. Good time for LTA to wake up their idea.

      With BCM i thought its going to be easier but more complicated than before.

      I agree that short and mid distance feeders should use bendy.But again space is the reasons and the trend of smaller ITH in future.Intratown imo can use DD due to its distance.291 & 293 already proved that.But for short distance feeders like 225 bendy is the way.BC wasting too many time waiting for upper deck pax to alight due to crowding and the short distance they travelled.

    • Changi Airport svc should use bendy if the infrastructure is going to be like that..

      24:6 bendy

      27:10 bendy

      34:6 bendy

      36:6 bendy

      53:8 bendy

      858:8 bendy

      Can cut a lot of SD already..

    • If I'm the bus deployment planner of GAS i would do as follow

      Request LTA 15 units of SG A22 in exchange for 15 B9TL to go SMRT.

      Request 20 units of B3 A95 in exchange for 20 (SG/SBS)B9TL to Seletar.

      My deployment will be

      2:20 B9TL & 5 A95

      6:5 B9TL & 2 A95

      15:18 Citaro & 2 A22

      34:13 Citaro & 3 A22

      36:17 Citaro & 3 A22

      43/43M:23 B9TL & 4 A95

      62:17 B9TL & 3 A95

      82:6 Citaro & 2 B9TL 

      83:5 B9TL & 3 Citaro

      84/354/358/381/382/386/403:Mix of majority Citaro & few A22.

      85:11 B9TL & 5 Citaro

      118:13 B9TL & 3 A95

      136:16 Citaro & 3 B9TL 

      359:7 Citaro & 3 B9TL 

      518:6 B9TL,5 Citaro,2 A95 & 2 A22.
