      962 also occasionally will get bendy deployment randomly..

      Don't forget 854 still has a number of O405Gs..

      Also sometimes got random O405Gs on 857

      Among trunk services in Yishun-Sembawang-Woodlands, 169, 854, 856, 969 have lot of bendies everyday. 

      187 also rare to see bendies. 

    • Yishun bendy deployment

      Bendy deployment on daily basis quite messy.

      800 - 1 to 2 bendies

      804 - 1 to 2 bendies

      806 - 1 to 2 bendies

      807 - 1 to 3 bendies

      811 - 1 to 3 bendies

      812 - 1 to 2 bendies

      I don't see the point of SBS to ply bendies randomly. They should just deploy bendies on 800 and 812 while making all others with DDs.

      812 hardly get A24s since the beginning of Seletar.. And they never intend to deploy them as 812 perm anyway..

    • Honestly what rationale is there for LTA to deploy A24s on Yishun feeders but not Airport services like 27? From a broader perspective, DDs are a suboptimal choice for Yishun feeders but an impossible choice for airport, and also other towns have feeders using DD so not sure why Yishun is an exception (ie allowed to use A24s; the others mostly using habits that will be replaced by DD)

      SBST has fixed bendy slots allocated to the feeders. They arent deployed on a random basis.

      800 - 1
      804 - 2
      806 - 2
      807 - 2
      811 - 2
      SP - 1

      i would think 2 of them are actually training buses....

      What sense does it make to have only 2 bendies in a fleet of 19 buses for 811 or 2 bendies in a fleet of 19 buses for 807 or 2 bendies in a fleet of 9 buses for 806 where the others are DDs? I don't understand the logic.

      I rather they have 8 bendies deployed on 806 and make that a bendy HC service than have this wierd mix of DD/bendy where the bendy has no meaning.

      Ya was expecting the bendies to be for sv 24. Putting them on yis feeders quite pointless but oh well

      I think some of the A24 might be transfer to sv24 once SMRT phase out all the 0405G.

      right now, there is only 2 bendy lots for sv169 in AMK interchange.... unless Sv169 dun use bendy completely , there isnt any space for sv24 bendies to park, if they deploy on sv24.

      Maybe 5 A24 for service 24 enough,5 SP.

      There's still one bendy slot crossover-ing from 302 on weekdays.. Unsure whether they've downsized this slot recently..

      Makes sense also. 172 doing great with DDs. Bendies should be kept for CGA services and short feeders/intra-towns
