    • Let's Say if Svc 21 Perm majority DD Depolyments operates on a Split Shift or Extended Shift on Weekdays, that means the majority DD Depolyments that operates on a Split Shift or Extended Shift on Weekdays will operate Full Day Shift or Three-quarter shift on weekends/Public Holidays.

      Example: SBS7436G = 17S on weekdays, 1A/7P on Weekends/Public Holidays

      SBS7485P = 18S on weekdays, 2A/8P on Weekends/Public Holidays

      SBS7317S = 19S on weekdays, 3A/9P on Weekends/Public Holidays

      Split shift buses go haywire..And split shift BCs is always the one who bring any preventive maintenance buses to workshop during the split breaks.For BcM,Any Am/Pm BC also do that during mealbreaks at depot.

    • I realize since BCM, alot of bus have dead mileage to go to T2 to start shift and do half trip and some end S shift by doing half trip

    • LTA should change consider changing all Voith Citaro to ZF starting from the older batch..Voith on Citaro really too jerky and problematic for older batches.

    • Since CGA request Mercedes bus for Airport service,Why not 110 & 858 use the OCs as well?

      Not CGA request one la.. its LTA wants the useless annoying announcement for fuck..

      Idgi lor, why need use shitaro? If SMRT buses don't have announcer system how they play the "Thank you for travelling with SMRT Buses" announcement?? Always puzzled tbh. And even if need use shitaro, why cannot use ZF ones?

      ZF only 10 units and 136C/141L are training buses.Maybe the reputable Mercedes badge.But seriously should use OCs also for 110/858..

      They should trial on A22 also.I can't stand the Taros on 110 & 858 to be honest.

      110 can use Citaro/OCs

      858 if possible use Citaro/OC/A22

    • I did spotted an unknown A22 cameoing on service 110. Rare special cameoing and I think it is one off issue.

      They should use the SMRT spec ones for 110/858...I don't get it why they don't put in on A22 or OC though

    • Do you think Singapore will go HK or UK style in future with almost all DD fleets and only a few SDs here and there??
