    • If service 85 was not withdrawn, then passengers can still take service 85 to Potong Pasir, Woodleigh, Serangoon, Kovan, Hougang and Sengkang from Orchard Road; and 123 will refuse their amendment to HarbourFront. 85 can also be extended to Punggol at the same time.

      85 should have kept, 147 is the one who became full fleet DD.

    • On the transfer of City Direct bus services to SBS Transit and SMRT,

      According to an article at www.zaobao.com.sg/znews/singapore/story20170417-749601,

      兀兰运输公司总经理黄业伟说:“把直达市区路线交给新捷运和SMRT经营,等于用回政府的巴士提供服务,当局只是按巴士行驶里数支付服务费,成本会比较低。 反观,私巴公司出价时就会把巴士的成本计算在内。”

      Woodlands Transport CEO say, "The transfer of City Direct bus routes to SBS Transit and SMRT is equivalent to returning to use the government buses to provide bus services. The authorities only have to consider the mileage travelled to pay the service fee, so costs is lower. Currently, the private bus operators factor the cost of the bus into the budget (that's why the asking price is higher)."

      Currently there are 22 City Direct bus routes, many of which do not collect enough fare revenue to pay the operator service fee, and have to rely on government subsidy.

      (What this means is that City Direct bus routes are supposed to be profitable.)

    • ... 陆交局之后询问SMRT和新捷运是否有兴趣接手经营这些路线,两家业者同意把这些路线纳入它们原有的巴士发包经营合约中。 陆交局会根据各别巴士所行驶的里数支付服务费。 The Land Transport Authority said that ... contracts. The Land Transport Authority then asked ...
