      That's why ive said,Need professional in this and furthermore TTS & GAS is leasing buses from LTA and there is protocol and regulations to be followed.Even GAS maintained most of their fleets well..They even scrub and wash all the brake dust off their bus rims every week..

    • I don't like the B1 B9TL because of the wing mirrors which cannot auto adjust,The deceiving two-piece mirror!

      But again, Dennis buses are made to overcome various terrains so if they dont make the bus more sturdy than the rest obv the bus will wear and tear faster..

      SBS9676S should be more or less gone case in HGDEP already based on someone posted in the other thread.

      For sure SLBP will be 100% WAB fleet by this year end, HGDEP will be next once all the Tridents are taken out from revenue service.

      Likelihood that HGDEP may not keep this solo VO3X till this Dec, once 9652 and 9658 goes off this month end.

      It's universally true yknow, the tridents in London and HK didn't age well too

      In fact the tridents in CTB pulled out earlier than the VOs..

      Dennis buses are great machines with performance that no other bus maker, besides MAN and Neoplan, can even come close to. Volvo buses stand in shame next to them, esp comparing VSO with tridents. 

      However, when playing the game of time, Dennis buses will find it hard to win.

      GAS does their maintenance damn well lor.. just look at their B9s. What were roaring and jerking buses under the bloody SBST became tamed angels under GAS.  

      Case in point. When GAS took in the 33xx series they were so bloody TORN. Now it feels like the equivalent of SBST buses which has just reached a year old (The oldest of the 33xx are already 5 years old)

       SBST > TTS > GAS.

    • I guess there is going to be mass spams of lay ups of Habits in the next few months for the December batches onwards...

      as can be seen, the Euro VI emission standard comes into effect on 1st Jan 2018, so all the remaining Euro V DDs have to be registered by the end of 2017 (some may be laid up first depending on whether bodywork had been completed on chassis itself)

      going by the current trend, they will wait till December ... you already say need to be register by end of Dec 2017, so the december batches wont be affected much..

      around 100 A95 plus 59 units of B9TL and maybe 30-40 units of Citaros to be registered.. 

      around 60 habits plus 50 MK IV plus 3 VO3x to be deregistered by end 2017. 

      plus LTA will allocate around 60-70 buses to SBST for seletar package.. 

      plus some units for the balance 4 new BSEP services.... so the figure is just nice...
