      wonder why they need around 30 SD for training purpose? during daytime, most of these citaros are sleeping inside SEDEP as well. 

      And a number of them sleeping at BPBP.. Include SG5850T as well, it's also part of the training fleet..

      Maybe LTA want to borrow SMRT for usage on Shuttle 3? But 30 SD + 1 DD is kinda a lot though..

      Think SG5850T Park overnight at sedep? Unless it is another A95 which is under TRG?

      so guess some of the SMRT B9 are also under TRG? There is around 5-6 B9 that park together with the TRG citaros in SEDEP. Which is separate from the 7 regoless B9

      How many SMRT buses did you notice practice ONP at Sedep?I thought those Yishun svc like 853,854,855 & 857 start to park there?

    • I rather see SG5850T lease to SBST than SMRT deploy it as TRG bus.

      Think so? The previous time I saw SG5850T was with that "TF 30" paper in front..

      Unsure about the B9TLs.. I think they're under storage instead?

      Difficult to find out the rego since the rear portion got blocked by the barrier..

    • TTS:27 service using approximately 365-368 buses including jumpbus duties but only have 179 SDs & 188 DDs which total up to 367 buses only.No spare buses except maximise the fleets to the core..Risk of no run trips is greater should any major breakdown occur and can’t recovered in time.

       

      GAS:27 service using more or less 313-316 buses including jumpbus and interlining but have 211 SDs & 210 DDs which total up to 421 buses.Got more than 105 spare fleets which is majority DDs.I wonder why they need so many spare buses?

      TTS should at least lease another 8 SDs and 8 DDs to play safe instead of pressuring the engineering team.

      GAS should at least return 8-10 units of B9TL to LTA.In return lease 6 more SDs.

    • KMB already have a few Gemilang bodied B9TL.

      Our Euro 6 B8L should be Gemilang bodied with sliding doors.

      What my friend told me is SMRT train Woodlands Transport,Aedge and another private operator drivers for the MRT shuttle.They are trained to familiarise with Citaro,B9TL and A95.

    • Citaros and B9TLs is the BCM mainstream fleets,Every operators have it in their stable.

      Why not make A22 & A95 mainstream fleets also?

      Go-Ahead can take 10 SG A22 from SMRT.

      Tower Transit take a few A95?
