      With current B9TL fleets,60 more new A95 and 15 E500 for them I don't see why they can't do that?800,804,806,811 & 812 already goes to SBST..

      I agree all 3 can do well with DDs especially 901 and 903. Even 911 will be good with DDs. 912/913 may still be better of with A24s.

    • After Yishun feeders go to SBS, A24 allocation should like:

      858 - 05

      912 - 12

      913 - 11

      302 - 12

      * 300 can be full fleet SD with more DDs enthused on 301/983

      * 900, 901, 903, 911 will operate with DDs

      * 302 can have 2 DDs for trial. Could do well for CCK Crescent residents going all the way to CCK Interchange (can go upstairs). With 979 doing well with DDs, 302 also could do well.

      I believe it'll be alright as long as 300 has a perfect 3-5mins frequency.. And not scheduling both 300 and 983 to depart interchange at the same timing..

    • 300 demands has dropped significantly...After SBST take over Yishun feeders,300 can use 8 A22 and 3 A24 only.

      901 901 is like 225 and 334 of SBST so i believe need. 912 would do well with DDs coz the route itself have only 1 bus that passed there for 80% of the route unlike 913 plus long haul travellers on 912 from checkpoint to Admiralty 913 route is parallel to many routes like: 178 at marsiling/checkpoint area. 904/964 btwn admiralty mrt to woodlands mart area and all the trunks that plies admiralty mrt. thus bendy can still do the job All other feeders in Woodlands doesnt have much parallel to trunk svc except 913.

      A24s are going to be so precious. I am also okay with 300 be full fleet SD operating at 03-04 mins frequency as there is 301 and 983 to supplement that can operate high number of DDs.

    • How i wish SMRT use OC500LE along with A22 on 950.

      SBST can use Citaro with their K230UB for 160 & 170.

      https://sg.news.yahoo.com/ex-sbs-bus-captain-convicted-drinking-vodka-driving-duty-110612081.html

      "He continued consuming vodka while ferrying passengers on an SBS Transit bus even after having drunk over five hours before the start of his shift.

      As a result, former bus captain Nagibullah Raja Saleem nodded off while at the wheel, veered into oncoming traffic and nearly crashed into several vehicles, alarming passengers who were on board.

      The 27-year-old Singaporean was so intoxicated that his alcohol level was assessed to be 2.4 times the legal limit more than four hours after he finished his shift.

      Nagibullah pleaded guilty on Wednesday (7 June) to one count of driving in a rash manner, one count of drink driving, and one count of using a mobile communication device while the bus was in motion.

      A fourth charge of leaving the bus in a position likely to cause danger, obstruction or undue inconvenience will be applied to be withdrawn following Nagibullah’s sentencing.

      The court heard that from 10am to 3pm on 29 June last year, Nagibullah had consumed alcohol before driving bus service 162 at the start of his shift at 3.30pm.

      Even as he drove the bus, Nagibullah kept taking swigs from a 330ml bottle of blackcurrant vodka, which he had placed on the left side of the driver’s seat.

      A CCTV camera within the bus captured Nagibullah drinking from the bottle six times and driving recklessly between 4.15pm and 6.15pm, as he headed from Shenton Way bus terminal to Yio Chu Kang bus terminal.

      While making a right turn from Keppel Road into Anson Road, Nagibullah failed to give way to oncoming traffic, resulting in a near-collision with a car.

      Around 4.28pm, Nagibullah fell asleep at the wheel twice while the bus was still moving.

      Later, he dozed off for over a minute with his head against the steering wheel after his bus came to a stop at a red traffic light. He remained asleep even after the traffic signal turned green and only woke up when a male passenger approached and asked him why the bus wasn’t moving.

      While along Orchard Turn towards Orchard Boulevard at around 4.35pm, Nagibullah drove the bus into a lane meant for traffic in the opposite direction, causing alarmed passengers to shout “Hey! Hey! Hey!” at him.

      The male passenger who spoke to Nagibullah earlier asked him if he was in a condition to drive since he had fallen asleep. Nagibullah indicated that he was able to do so. A female passenger approached Nagibullah and told him that she would report him if he did not drive carefully.

      However, Nagibullah fell asleep again and failed to move off at a green traffic signal, despite motorists horning at him. The same female passenger again warned him that she would report him if he were to repeat his mistake.

      While driving, Nagibullah’s bus would swerve sideways and encroach into other lanes, prompting other motorists to honk at him.

      At one point, Nagibullah missed a bus stop despite passengers repeatedly pressing the bell. As a result, he alighted passengers along a bend in the road.

      After the bus was off-service at around 5.37pm, Nagibullah drove it from Yio Chu Kang terminal to the Shenton Way bus terminal via the CTE.

      While on the expressway, Nagibullah stopped the bus along the leftmost lane for some 45 seconds, forcing other vehicles to go around it. He also failed to brake when the bus was stationary, causing it to roll back slightly before he moved forward.

      The CCTV camera also showed Nagibullah taking both hands off the steering wheel to check his mobile phone for 20 seconds as the bus was moving. He even picked up a passenger in the off-service bus but let the passenger alight a few minutes later.

      After Nagibullah reached the bus terminal, he failed to park the bus properly and went against the bus depot’s flow of traffic.

      When a timekeeping duty officer, who was informed about the incident, went to check on Nagibullah, he found Nagibullah at the driver’s seat with the engine still running.

      The officer then asked Nagibullah to move to the passenger seat while he took over the parking. He also saw an empty vodka bottle in a plastic bag at the left side of the driver’s seat.

      Police were informed of the incident and arrived at the bus terminal at around 9.19pm. Staff Sergeant Sritharan Subramaniam interviewed Nagibullah and found that his face was flushed with bloodshot eyes, and he was slurring.

      At around 11.07pm, Nagibullah was arrested and brought to the Traffic Police Headquarters, where he took and failed a breathalyzer test.

      Nagibullah, who is represented by lawyer Richard Siaw, will return to court on 5 July.

      For rash driving, Nagibullah can be jailed up to six months and/or fined up to $1,000. On a first conviction for drink driving, he can be jailed up to six months or fined between $1,000 and $5,000. For using a mobile communication device while the bus was in motion, he can be jailed up to six months and/or fined up to $1,000."

      I definitely would not have been happy to be a part of his everyday.

      How could he have drunk so much on the wheel and actually managed to not knock into anything while driving a huge pregnant cow for more than 3 straight hours is beyond me.

    • This ship is sinking, or maybe it's only now that I realise this is a bottomless pit.

      Either way, I am leaving.

      I'm sorry, guys.

      Just thought it would be responsible of me to say this.

      I won't be replying anymore.

      Please don't expect any reply from me from now on.

      Thanks.

       

      (In case you don't know by now, a certain user returning after being "banned" for one year is enough to prove that that user is actually created by one powerful user here, and that user was never actually banned, but just hibernate for a while. Likewise for some other users who recently re-surfaced here. I am utterly disappointed about the culture here. Nonetheless, I wish everyone all the best. I believe I have already done my best, to help contribute to the forum community, but I don't think I can help anymore. If this ship is sinking beyond repair, maybe it's better for me to leave. I'm sorry.)

      btw, "gekpohboy" sounds like "game boy". I until now then realise. LOL.

      Ok. Let's move on.
