      I am sure to miss those O405Gs...Gradually replaced by B9TL & a few A95.

      I miss the Habit ones, along with the Batch 3 VOs.

      Every new bus was great because it was in a brand new condition. The party period of brand new buses frequently being registered and pushed into service is ending soon.

      So how are the lobbyists going to manage with that? Are they encouraging "fleet mixing" in small quantities to create the potential of more cameos?

      Hahaha... just saying I was never in approval of fleet mixing.. 

      I only started calling for more mixes after SMRT got tainted with the dirty SBST buses.. if one has to get it everyone else must too heh

      Volgren bendies all from WL. 989 was in CCK route group, so likely under KJ.

      Anyway, is it true only T1 has enough clearance for DD in basement while T3 isn't suitable for most of the older bendies?

    • It's proven that a24s done better with bendies. Even with O405Gs also ok if bc handled it well too.

    • How is the bendy scene on Yishun feeders this week? Have DDs returned on 800, 804, 811 and 812?

      To be frank only 804,811 & 812 is the best for DD and 806 given the high loadings.

      800 full SD is just 2 bendies.

    • Apparently there is this guy ranted in SMRT fb page asking them to deploy 0405G to CGA which is impossible to do so due to turning radius and stuff yet still being idiotic and ignorant
