      I hope still stays until the unit lifespan expire - 2017 to 2018 ( sv47) / 2018 to 2032 ( SV 168 ) 

      This can only even seem that bit more convincing if you can prove to me that 5839C is seen on 168 regularly on weekdays.

      They could just swap out some of their B9TLs for A22s if they have excess DDs.

      Swap with who?TTS also very tight liao.SMRT?Need LTA approval leh..The most GAS will only want Citaros from SBST or SMRT.But again SMRT need Citaros for 110 & 858.

      1 SD is between 3-3.5k and DD is 4-4.5k lease fee per month leh.

    • Thats why GAS & TTS still practice interlining to maximise the buses..

      Here's an ideas of cost effectively yet you have spare buses to play around but again management always get the upper hand in squeezing.

      41 & 49:19 buses,10 DD and 9 SD can reduce 2 buses to be on spares.

      66 & 97:51 buses,37 SD & 14 DD,deploy 2 DD and 1 SD for spares.

      333 & 335 should be interlining..

    • In the old days, interlining wasn't feasible because it meant buses had to carry 10 million desto boards with them. These days, with EDS anything is possible. Having said that, Transperth managed fine all these years before the advent of EDS. Sure, you did get some weird desto displays but that was because the rollers only had a set number of options to display.

      Actually for certain service i would recommend interlining.

      Examples:S51 1st trip,HG-JE then JE-HG mealbreaks,then do 2 full trips of 102 before end duty.Feeders should be crossing each others.

      Ditto for 74. 1st trip BV-HG then HG-BV mealbreak, followed by 2 full trips of 200 before finishing up. But must be SD, of course.

      200 actually can start from Kent Ridge and loop at BNV,I dont understand why LTA didn't want to built a new int beside the MRT.Parking lots is very chronic

      If they take in more, they should deploy at least 2 A95 on their full dd svc

      83 wasted la,should have 3 citaro not full dd.

    • If TTS get 10 A95 

      Jurong East:66 deploy 2 units and 3 units for 143.

      Bt Batok:106 & 189 deploy 2 units each and left 1 unit for spare.

      Clementi:96 fleet should be B9TL/Enviro500 and Citaro.

      78,79 & 98 a mix of B9TL & Enviro500
