    • I got a feeling GAS A95 is exclusively for service 12e,68 & 118.2 of my 118 ex colleagues selected for training.

    • Left 41 units of A95 at Budep storage

      Hopefully 10 each for TTS & SMRT,11 units for SBST and 10 for GAS.

    • The balance A95 will be distributed near Seletar operation date.SMRT will get some,GAS will get a few for a new svc and also for 12e while TTS will get for their new svc.

    • Got a feeling GAS might return those two A95 back,wakaka

      I would foresee weekends loading to be q heavy too.

      In fact I actl rly commend the guys behind these FFS for making them full day. Adding to the good routing they have. 

      This is EXACTLY what I suggested way back, to have limited stop variants that would run parallel and at fixed schedule timings (albeit some who thought it was a stupid idea).

      Hopefully svc 2 and 80, my suggested svcs, will get them soon too.

      Tighten the runtime, and patronage will pick up.

      I would note CT28 is effectively substituted by 147e. SBS Transit could promote the service in that way too.

      Maybe Clarke Quay bus stop (Tan Tye Place/Clarke Quay), or 38 Oxley Road? But I think Clarke Quay will be impractical. So 38 Oxley Road will be practical :)

      Has CT18 been cannibalised by DTL3 yet?

      When SBST takes over Selector contract I hope they can come up with 851e too.

      No problem to tighten the runtime but again,Operators reluctant to give BC slightly longer break or meal time and in fact they took advantage by adding 1 more trips.

      Its up to LTA not SBST.
