      Very obvious ma...they are trying to put one package into one existing parent depot each now pending completion of BCM depots, and now that is made possible coz all remaining packages are currently operated by a single operator each.

      All Sembawang-Yishun Package services are currently in SMRT AMDEP/WPDEP no more no less. 

      All Woodlands Package services are currently in SMRT WLDEP no more no less. 

      All CCK-BPJ Package services are currently in SMRT KJDEP/BUDEP no more no less. 

      I believe the same is happening for remaining packages currently operated by SBST too.

      I believe in future SBST will get 6 packages,SMRT 3-4 packages,GAS will get 2-3 packages and another foreign operator will get 2.

    • SBST:Serangoon-Eunos/Tampines/Jurong West/Bt Merah/Bishan-Toa Payoh/CCK-Bt Panjang.

      SMRT:Sembawang-Yishun/Woodlands/Bedok/Bulim

      GAS:Seletar/Sengkang-Hougang 

      New Operator:Loyang/Clementi

      I wonder why Amdep-Mandai zone so cheem?They can simply make it simple mah.

      Woodlands Bus Park:167,169,856,858,963,965,966 & 969 and some spare buses since majority of these service is ex-Wldep and stay around that area.

      Sembawang Interchange:859,882,883 & 981

      Ang Mo Kio Depot:110,171,853,854,855 & 857 & some spare buses.

      Task Force

      Seletar Depot,Woodlands Bus Park,Bulim Depot.

      Probably a different scenario if they didn't include the Yishun feeders under Seletar... 

      Majority of Mandai services are trunks.. And a few services that ply the eway..

    • About the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur High Speed Rail, there are concerns about whether the project will continue under the new Pakatan Harapan government.

      To address this, here is a quote by Dr Mahathir with regards to the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur High Speed Rail, which will give a hint on what may happen to the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur High Speed Rail project,

      “We need to do a study whether it is feasible or not because we don't have the money and we have to borrow money, and that is not something the Government can bear at this moment. We have to know whether we really need this HSR or not” - Dr Mahathir (Source)

      Basically, Malaysia has financial problems, and until the financial problems are resolved, it may delay the High Speed Rail project.

      Which is also good for Singapore, because the HSR is also a financial burden for Singapore. (Source)

      Considering the HSR is a burden for both countries, it may be better to cancel the project.

      Or put on hold until both countries have saved enough money to fund the HSR project.

      When comes to money, what’s more important is whether the costs of living is affordable to the people. Right now, the Malaysia people are struggling with the costs of living, and honestly, we Singaporeans are also not coping well with the costs of living. So might as well cancel the HSR sua, and reduce the burden that is on both of our shoulders.

      Apart from that, stop buying the luxury buses to run public bus services. It’s really unnecessary, and all these additional spending on public bus services would really add on to our costs of living (via GST, tax, etcetera) eventually.

      Hopefully, the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur High Speed Rail project can be cancelled.

      Most 912/A/B AP shifts will onp at WTBI.. A number start & end shift at WLDEP..

      Other feeders should be parking at WLDEP already..
