    • Hi guys, let this thread be a short one.

      What i wanted to do is to compile the transport stuff that we will be expecting in 2017. Let us help each other by filling in this while we pass from 2016 to 2017, so that we will have stuff to look forward in next year. A wrap-up of 2016 is done in landtransportguru so just go there take a look. Here's what i anticipate nxt year (not according to chonological order, but rather what i can think of):

       

      1. Opening of Bukit Panjang ITH
      2. Opening of Sengkang Interchange Expansion (Compassvale Interchange)
      3. Opening/Relocation of Shenton Way Bus Ter and New Bridge Road Bus Ter
      4. Opening of TWE and together, the new Tuas Bus Ter
      5. Opening of DTL3
      6. Opening of Samudera LRT station
      7. Opening of Changi Airport Terminal 4 (and of course there should be amendments to bus services)
      8. Release of results for the 3rd GCM package
      9. New bus services (such as the 68 and 500 we have have discussing about :))
      10. Withdrawal of all premium services operated by public transport operators (but its just 555 and 598 left)
      11. Deregistration of some older buses such as O405G MKII (smiley)
      12. Awaiting press releases on developments and timeline of these projects (which may or may not come out nxt year):
      • JRL and CRL
      • SG-JB RTS and SG-KL HSR
      • Buangkok ITH


      These are just what i remembered. Do add comment if there are any left out. Thanks guys! :)

      And have a happy new year! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

    • Don't be suprised if Volgren G and first batch Habit bendies also gone by 2017.

      Welcome 122 A95 facelift and 15 Enviro500.

      Trial of B8TL and Euro 6 Citaro.Most probably another new brand try to impress LTA also.

      More new crap service which most of it redundant..More longer winding routes chopped into half.

      Welcome 5th operator and probably the last.

      Expect changes and revised BCM package.

    • I foresee a rationalisation of bus routes in Tuas, Singapore when the Tuas West MRT stations open.

    • DTL 3 may not see route changes. The bus network in the East is already quite well established.

      66 and 67 duplicates >80% of DTL.

    • Based off LTA's news release regarding the negotiated bus contracts, perhaps we can expect to see new services in 2017 as follows:

      Sengkang/Hougang: 3 new routes
      Perhaps new feeder for Anchorvale, new trunk route (or routes) out of the Sengkang Extension Int?

      Bedok: 1 new route
      Suspect rationale is to enhance connectivity to DTL3

      Tampines: 1 more new route (after incl. svcs 127, 129)
      New feeder service?

      Jurong West: 2 new routes
      2x New JIS to better serve Tuas Industrial Estate?

      Serangoon-Eunos: 1 new route
      Suspect rationale is to enhance connectivity to DTL3

      That's it for SBST, surprisingly for SMRT apparently there are no more new services to be launched (svc 883 is the new service in the Sembawang/Yishun package) so this suggests any new bus routes will be accompanied by shortening/elimination of other SMRT bus routes ...

    • Next year's global economy looks gloomy.

      Unlikely our government will spend big money, unless it's to create new jobs and help the people cope with the bad weather.

      Tampines: 68.

      Sengkang: Unlikely feeder. Compassvale Bus Interchange probably conflict with Buangkok Bus Interchange, that's why opening delayed.

      Bedok: probably to compensate a route cut.

      Jurong West: One for Tuas, another for Jurong West.... may be 500.

      Serangoon-Eunos: No new areas, so probably to compensate a route cut.

      what i heard is the withdrawal of 700, introduction of a new service (973?) when BPITH opens, while 972 extend to Suntec...

    • I hope LTA will trailing Citaro C2 with Euro 6 engine.

      I hope LTA will buy Volvo B8L with Wright Eclipse Gemini III bodywork.

      I hope LTA will buy Scania N280UB/Volvo B8RLE with ComfortDelGro bodywork.

    • I hope SBS Scrapped all the Non Low-floor buses such as Volvo B10M MK4 DM3500 & Volvo Olympians.

      I hope SMRT Scrapped all the Non-WAB buses such as MB O405G Hispano MK2 & Habit O405G with Vogelsitze System 600 seats.
