    • Every bus is a good bus

      每一辆巴士都是好巴士

      Setiap bas adalah bas yang baik

      ஒவ்வொரு பஸ் ஒரு நல்ல பேருந்து

      As from driver view its the other way round..Both buses capped at 60kmh.A22 does better with feeders and many stop and go svc while Ciporo is suitable for expressway service.

      How is the shitaro even suitable? Save fuel??

      That fucking adblue tho??

      That's not even the comparison bro, and the OC is indeed heavier than the Citaro, and hence harder to control..

      They complained about the higher side mirrors,braking and the retarder.In fact the OC is more powerful than Citaro although its slightly heavier than Citaro..12L 299hp/1250nm vs puny 6.4L 282hp/1120nm hahaha

      I also did ask the loyang smrt starter why deploy all Citaro,They say all its LTA. Becareful of what you say bro,A few LTA managements also a user here.

      It is miles more powerful.. the OC can conquer that slope like a breeze.. 

      The shitaro like a golf cart fml

      Expressway no need to do stopping and no traffic lights mah..Citaro breakdown prone but easy to repair as the engine is not that complex.Even OC is the 2nd bus that easier to repair.

      What to do?Its already a standardised model for every operator beside the B9TL.

      Thanks to both SMRT & SBST for being the first in SG to bring in the Citaro and to massive purchase.

      So? The shitaro is noisier, jerkier and rougher still. What ADVANTAGES does the shitaro have tho??

      Hahaha SMRT alr knew what a rabak piece of shit the shitaro is.. hence their small order.. 

      It's the fucking SBST back then that had money to burn and bring in so much of it.. to the extent there are surplus..

      Cheaper spare parts and easier to repair as the engine is much straightforward.

      Its actually a good bus until they start with the detuning of gearing power..

      SBST is more to cost saving and SMRT is the otherwise because back then SMRT runtime is so jialat that even Dennis Lance can go up to 80kmh..Now 969 even do 40kmh at expressway..😂

      High fuel efficiency

      燃油效率高

      kecekapan bahan api yang tinggi

      அதிக எரிபொருள் திறன்

      After the 1st Citaro landed in Amdep ive already left SMRT though i still doing part time as NR BCs.Yes i do miss the O405,O405G,UD and Lance.When i do training last time,My trainer stop at Wldep and Kjdep to let us test drive the CRL & DAF/Hino respectively and as former SBST BC too,SMRT buses is way better in terms of performance compared to SBST fleet

    • 'Shitaro'  LOL creative and memeworthy name indeed. Few years back bus enthus were praising Citaro because it was said to be more 'smoother' than the 'jerky' or 'unstable' KUBs, and it looks more stylish etc etc unti operators mass purchase Citaro then all complain lol. I generally dislike Citaros but I prefer SMRT spec ones because got more seats than the SBST ones albeit weaker aircon. Just wished SMRT spec citaros were mass purchased instead.

      I wish LTA change to ZF Ecolife...Much better acceleration than the detuned Voith.

      Which is my point right. If it is SMRT spec I may dislike it less. 

      And I stand my ground that it is the better ones in SBST fleet. But in SMRT it brings shame and that's pretty much it

      Yes, maybe refresh the interior while they at it

      Hopefully LTA will change to ZF,Sliding door and PIS..

      Just change to white led bulbs for the interior and change the pvc to other colour with more sponge.As for A22,I prefer the Voith one..

      The Lance could have been a decent bus but for its non-existent suspension and the fact that the drivers had to chiong at 80km/h.  Worse than roller coaster ride.  I believe it was a cheap option to get to fill up the "2nd class citizen" services like 167, 851, 852, 853, 855 and 980.  TIBS and SMRT really turboed the cummins engine no-holds barred to milk every ouce of juice from the 8.3L setup.  F1 car performance yeah together with a roar louder than the O405 but dangerous to the passengers.  Even the ceiling panels came off faster than the other buses due to the undamped bumps.  You could actually see the ceiling hand straps swaying from side-to-side, not seen since the days of the LP1113.  Evident of a total lack of lateral suspension.  Even the Hino RK176's had proper lateral suspension.

      AND the seating capacity of a Lance is 31 pax.

      Shitaros are shitty but still a luxury compared to the Lances.

      I actually like the lights the Citaro has now.. oh that one thing I like about them actually

      They need a PIS.. in fact they better get them before the A22.. but again can't trust the intelligence of LTA la haha, and SBST so stupidly design their bus to be so goddamn hard to modify
