      Intratowns in Woodlands have extremely high turnover rates.. stops are near each other and many people simultaneously board and alight at multiple stops, and only travel for a few stops.. 

      913 east loop alone plies Admiralty Stn twice.. one full loop will have the bus boarding and alighting at train stn 4 times.. it almost operates like tram alr, and doesn't rly make sense to put normal DDs as trams uh?

      Intro-ing DD to Sv913 east loop could worsen the crowd situation at for B/S along WDL Ave 6 during morning peak hours..

      After Sv964 got DD, most of the pax intend to alight at ADM Stn wouldn't bother going up to the upper deck if a Sv964 DD come first.. Otherwise it would bunch together with Sv913/E buses.. End up those Marsiling/Woodlands Sec students waiting at ADM Stn (who're intending to travel to the West loop) will have to wait longer..

      Woodlands feeder 900 received its first DD... soon will have 901 and 903... seems like an end of an era arriving for Woodlands feeders.

      On par with the intro of Sv665 DD..

      This Sv900 DD ran under S2 shift.. And changed to PM shift after the S2 shift ended..

      So you expect other SD crossover to do the 964 last trip?

      why not, last time they can take 1179U from 912 do that last trip. DD on 964 after peak hour is really quiet. Took 964 DD at night before, nobody boarded and alighted from woodlands ave 9 to WTBI.

      And they downsized that slot to an A22.. Until they added a number of duties to Sv964..

      Previously 1 AP.. Then add SvBPS1 & Sv912 crossover.. BSEP came in and add another AP slot.. And now there's 6 AP slots (or maybe more)..

      Last weekday bus all along 1045pm since 2007 days isn't it..?

      They added 2 AP on top of the 4 AP from the ever since the B9TL debut on Sv964 (around Sept 2016 I guess?) if I remember correctly..

      Unless LTA intend to buy Euro 6 A24 for feeder usage then can talk further.

      Hopefully they'll consider them.. DD can't really work well on some/most feeders..

      They will tell you if 225 can work fine with DDs why not others with longer route.
