    • Any idea when the Seletar contract will be awarded?

      And roughly when will the Ulu Pandan contract be announced?

    • Did anyone notice that some DDs with ads are having the ad on the front windscreen removed (but the ad is still on the rest of the bus), or is it just me?

      That's a really good move IMO. It was irritating and disturbing to the eyes.

    • they should stop producing PS ads too, so weird to have a 'slap' on the buses, although BL ads are okay

    • It's been some time since I went to Yishun after my project there got over.

      Has anyone observed latest fleet on 860?

      4 BTOs opened in the last 4 months, 2 along Yishun Ring Road and 2 along Yishun Ave 1.

      Keen to also know whether loading on 117 has spiked?

    • 117 as usual,Only peak hours 2-3 buses fully seated with a bit of standees...Other than that 😭

      851 & 860 got any perm DDs?I might think this Seletar package is same like Bulim except this contract is 5 tranches..

      In Jan-Feb when I was in Yishun region, 860 had 5-7 perm DDs everyday + 1 perm bendy. Don't know now how many.

      SMRT is damm smart not to deploy any perm A95 on 851/860.They rather use random buses.

      Deploy lor,From their pattern they are pro-SMRT/TTS so no suprised what.

      Later electric/Hybrid buses also these companies will get to trial first

      If you go to see for trial purpose, 190/972 are very good routes since they have very high loading, go through populated estates and city areas.
