    • Finally saw a small number of O405Gs On service 807. Maybe occupying on the SD slots.

    • Is it true that from 1 Jan 2019 there will be no 0405Gs anymore??? This means Singapore will be left with only 40 bendies. ugly.png

      Yep, and maybe it might also include DT or VSO (if they are unable to run until 2021 or 2023). Non-WABs will follow analogue television.

      Tridents will be a good riddance by next July anyway when their lifespan ends.

    • I believe the remaining NWAB buses will run on the roads till end 2019 if their lifespans permit, just no lifespan extensions. LTA only promised full WAB fleet by 2020 and I believe they set this date so that they won't need to cut short the lifespans of too many buses that are still in good working order. The O405Gs and VSOs are still in decent shape.

      Apparently it crashed into a pedestrian walkway in CCK after ditching its Tibs colours. When exactly was that? Can't be from its Route 67 days, can it?

    • Today at Khatib, it was a bit of weird feeling for me. In peak time for 20-30 minutes, I didn't spot any bendy at Khatib towards the city. It made me feel weird, very weird... Anyone experience something like this?

    • guess if you want to do bendy spotting... the place is CCK and Woodlands... any other areas?? Yishun feeders maybe for another few months, but the # bendies has already reduced considerably.

      Bendies is well utilised at Changi Airport....during peak periods 858 pax face will show huge relief if A24 come back to back..

      CCK also quite few left... Basically those from 300 301 302 of which arent that many as well (even yishun possibly have more)

      WDL now the most iinw but also a major decrease compared to how it was last time

      AMDEP should consider shifting some remaining 0405Gs to KJDEP for 184 and CCK feeders after the Yishun feeders go to Seletar. Since KJDEP like left with less than 20 0405Gs. The remaining services under Sembawang-Yishun package consists of trunks which can easily use DDs for high capacity.

      WLDEP still got the most till next year especially they got the majority of the Volgren 0405Gs.

      O405Gs by mid next year all can say bye2...Amdep need to retain at least 7-8 A24 for 858.

    • What I heard from Amdep is they maintain the same models that they have now.Those SMB Citaros heard will be transfer over to KJ & WL.

    • I believe it is compulsory from bus model, SBS1688K, to scrap the bus at the end of 17 years. The remaining non-WAB buses, just de-register at the end of lifespan only, extension is no longer given starting from SBS1688K. Reason being it is GCM, LTA will sure buy their bus to replace old bus. LTA sure love their operators that much in improving services.
