    • Coz the A95 is for fleet add for Kg Bahru Ter extension.. so naturally they will appear more often on 2 and 12

      Svc 62 & 118 deploy 2 A95 each.

      Yea I suggested this many times alr.. Finally u agree w me that 12 needs full DDs. Now is timely since 12e can swap its DDs for the remaining Citaros in 12.

      15 A95 for svc 2/2A and 12 extension and 12e and remember they also lease SG5536,5537,5540-45 and that’s 8 B9TL.Prepare for future 68 fleet?

      Even my Punggol BC friends have learned the A95 but till now they haven’t drive for their revenue service..

    • Because of that,Svc 2,12 & 12e BCs always try to kapo each other A95 when they have mealbreaks at depot.

    • Or another simple solution.. fk Volvo and its shitty SBST specs and just look for MAN for all new buses in the future.. 

      For the tri-door, fk the ADL and go with the A95..

      Then no one will have to fight lor.. hahahaha

      Best solution is to deploy 4 A95 each for svc 2 & 12 and 2 A95 each for service 518,62 & 118 and put one A95 on spare.Or another is random deployment for svc woth DDs.

      A95 might be better than B9, but I’ll still rather have 50/50 than everything A95

      Shitty SBST specs is the only part I totally agree with

      No KUBs please,I rather GAS take OCs or some of the SG A22 since they already know how to maintain A95.

      If GAS wins Hougang they might move some KUBs to Loyang.

      Hougang very hard to win beside SBST,If Mandai got chance since its a new depot and SMRT standard has deteriorated over the years.SBST territory that got high chances of winning is Serangoon-Eunos,Bedok & Clementi while SMRT is only Sembawang-Eunos.

    • Serangoon routes can go back to AMDEP when UPDEP takes over CBD routes (57, 120, 121, 122, 131, 400, 402). 21 can go BRBP and 124 can go majority ARBP too.

      Sembawang-Eunos? Did you mean Sembawang-Yishun?
