      Depend on the power of the lobbyists bro,If majority of them favour then so be it..Like ADL buses..No authorised agent here yet can still give SMRT the priorities..

      When come to full electric or hybrid vehicles,Its aint cheap either let alone from China.

      Thats why there is a huge price difference between a fully petrol Honda Vezel 1.5 and its Hybrid brother.

    • All, I witness go ahead singapore buses having a number tag in front of their windscreen. Maybe to signify the number of buses assigned to them? Did anybody notice it? Cheers. Thanks.

      bendies not part of BCM? then is 903/911/912/913 under BCM? so why SMRT still using bendies? they should have used LTA buses instead of bendies...

      read through the press release and it mention all buses  owned by SMRT/SBST before 1 sep 2016 are leased to LTA for a sum of money......

      so you agree with Mr carbikebus that bendies are NOT part of BCM?

      mr carbikebus is saying that bendies is not part of BCM.... if it is not part of BCM, then these bendies should not be deployed after 1 sept..

      i did not say that KUB is not part of BCM... the press release already say that SBST leased all its 2900 buses (which mean KUB/Citaro/B9/VO3x/Trident/VSO/MK4 etc) to LTA.

      he talk about KUB (which i never mention anything at all)...

      U r the one who say that bendies are not part of BCM. so where is the proof?  never say you owe me a living, but you have been giving lot of incorrect informations here...

      So,The Seletar winner get the A24 also ah for Yishun feeders?I understand that LTA leased buses from SBST/SMRT but that doesn't guaranteed that the Bendies is included under transition right?Unless you can prove me that the bendies is part of the package..This forum is for discussion and there is no need to say who is right who is wrong right?No need to show who is supreme and king here also although you're working with the authority...

      you are the one who say that bendies is not part of BCM. right now, every single package (tendered/negotiated) are under BCM which bendies are still operating under those SMRT negotiated packages.

      whether the seletar package winner get A24 or DD, does not alter the fact that bendies are still part of BCM right now..  

      even if the seletar winner does not get bendies, there are still bendies doing other services under BCM.

      so SMRT did not leased all its buses to LTA? so they are keeping the bendies under SMRT balance sheet? so SMRT is so good to provide buses FOC to LTA ?

      from LTA press releases.

       There remain about 4,000 buses that are owned by SBS Transit and SMRT Buses at the moment. During the tenures of the negotiated contracts, LTA will lease these buses from the operators

    • I know buses that are owned by the two incumbents are leased by LTA,My question is about the bendies under transition or not.

      Existing bendies will still be operated by SMRT until it reaches its lifespan and scrapped. LTA no longer buys bendies as part of its bus buys so bendies will die a slow natural death. The 40 A24s were purchased by SMRT before LTA took over the function of buying buses for all operators. Enjoy them while they last...
