      Yes it's true,Operators can only proposed which svc warrant DD and the rest is up to LTA.LTA loves svc 83 & 85 to the extend both get full DD even during holidays.

      You can judge how they utilise their resources by observing how they constantly deploy 2 DDs to Sv857A (Yishun-YCK Road).. While throwing SDs to Sv857 during a typical weekday morning peak hour.. 

      Sv857A should be getting the SDs instead since there's Sv854 complementing that same sector.. 

      I think they deploy DDs on 857A so that the DDs can do more trips on 857A during peak hours rather than 1 loop of 857 during peak hours. The loading is quite heavy from Khatib to YCK road during peak hours. 

      They should beef up capacity on 854 and 857 both. Even if 857 gets 50-60 pax and not 70+ pax, still these are long distance travelers to city and making them stand along CTE is not a nice  thing to do.

      That doesnt make sense at all. Is it really LTA?? 

      They can't see that 969 should be full fleet DD and not the 83?? Makes me fume!!! 

      I think it could be that LTA person living in Punggol who has made 83/85 full fleet DD as it suits his purpose. I can't think of any other rationale of doing so after months of data that can show apart from 2-3 trips a day, the DDs never get utilized on 83 and maybe a few more on 85 (though 85 I can say ok because there are around 50-55 pax from Sengkang to Yishun who can get comfortable ride).

      It's true,once we feedback regarding svc 3,82,83,85 & 136 all they say is LTA decision

    • If im in charge of the bus distribution i definitely will distribute the B3 A95 to all operators

      20 each for TTS & GAS

      42 for SBST & 40 for SMRT

      Order 100 Euro6 B8L 350hp & 100 Euro6 A95 and distribute again

      Off topic: has the government stopped procuring A22s and SDs in general?

      Should be an indication that the trial is successful and they will be retaining it on the roads. I do hope that LTA is not going ahead with any further SD orders for the next 4 to 5 years because what they seriously need is HC replacements and expansions, and even with the possible scenario of bus services getting withdrawn!

      The single decker would have completed their journey of replacements, with the last 50 DM3500s being replaced in 2017-18. So no need any more single deckers. If there is new bus services, then rationalise the loading of other bus services.

    • Nice to see that GA finally take in MAN buses. Just that it's A95 instead of A22 as they need a bit more SDs. Now only wait and see any A95s going to TT after the successful trial of 3D A95 on 143.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
