      GAS has SG4001J (Electric bus trial) and SBST had 8002T

      So why is LTA biased towards SMRT and TT? GA also had a bus to trial.

      Moreover the 5999Z and the 3 door A22 could be given to SMRT and TT because of SBST and GA's reluctance to take in MAN buses or lack of experience

    • GAS wanted to streamline its operations, hence only taros and wrights. SBST or ComfortDelGro might not want it cause the MAN bus that it previously had, apparently did not pass trial.

    • What makes you think SBS Transit don’t want a variety of bus models? Isn’t that what they have now?

      Well,It isn't do any harm if they take a few E500 what.

      Or best if LTA can ask SMRT for some of their OC500LE.

    • An observation just now:

      Has SMRT totally removed the use of the destos? Saw SMB 35K tdy that the EDS not working and what was done instead was pasting an A4 paper with 883 printed on it on the windscreen, and another one in front of the driver. Shldnt SMRT make at least 1 or 2 for backups?

    • Idk where to put this, but TWE should be opening very soon.

    • Many svc 62,83 & 85 BCs want a mixture of SD into their fleets..

    • Since KJDEP got so many B9TL,Why not deploy 5 units for Svc 176 to replace the 3 A24 and 2 Habits?Dont tell me faster boarding/alighting activities again as SMRT runtime is very good nowadays.188 A24 can also be replace with 2 more B9TL..190 can deploy 6 B9TL to replace all those SD.

    • Saw a private silver refurbished Mitsubishi Rosa 8.5m with rooftop aircon pod and auto transmission @ Tampines St 21..1st gear look sluggish though
