      AMDEP is no longer fit to handle the 96x series !!

      It does seem like AMDEP will eventually be drained of all A95's.

    • SMRT should not have followed BCM redeployment in the first place. At least let 169 856 858 963 965 966 969 stay under WLDEP first. Until maybe SMRT ease up after Seletar takeover or wait till Mandai integrated depot is ready. By letting AMDEP take over the mentioned services now, they are screwing up the bus services even more.

      Just got blocked by him for "not following instructions" haha

      Did you read the notice in red with a warning sign (which can be found across the whole of SgWiki Buses) when you edit the page? I had tracked down your account and it seems that your talk page did not exist (and likewise, the requirement stated in the notice is not there). This is the reason why the administrator said you "did not follow instructions". There's a sound policy for such a requirement imposed on all user accounts created after the notice was issued.

      In the first place, do you know that SMB5902A, SMB5903Y, SMB5904U are WLDEP SP except for SMB5888H.

      I doubted that SG4002G can be classified under the same category with SG4003D or SG5999Z for that matter...to me, I am not surprised that SG4003D goes to SBST since I had the personal feeling that it is the best candidate to conduct the trial of a Volvo B8L with Wright Eclipse Gemini 3 bodywork. As for SG5999Z, although its trial was first conducted by Tower Transit, one of the reasons why it is now registered to SBST lies in its length. In other words, the abovementioned qualities should be tested by a company who already had quite substantial experience of 40 years in operating DDs.

      Then what's the point of BCM if everything favour the incumbents? During SG5999Z trial with TTS,Majority of the BCs is new to DD and in fact they drove well than seasoned SBST BCs i dare say.

      Well,they simply can follow SBST style first.169,858,966 & 969 all dual control.

      966 abit hard, unless LTA can build another bus terminating point in Marine Parade area. 965 should be the one to go dual control instead.

      The issue of assigning demonstrators for trial by the incumbents cannot be a factor in itself to show that LTA favors the incumbents. Although I have to agree on the issue that BCM seems to be existent only in name at the current stage - and this is yet another poor policy planning on the part of the government; they took over the bus assets and cut down on operation costs.

      Of course, it still seems as an open question as to what is the list of responsibilities the operators have in receiving the bus packages - in relation to the point as to how LTA "assess the criteria" in assigning the demonstrators for trial. I might have thought of the probability that, if the demonstrator trials do not add burden the maintenance and operations of those non-incumbents, perhaps LTA may have assigned them to the non-incumbents.

      However, it still remains at LTA's discretion to deem the incumbents as the priority candidates since they got much more experience in trying such demonstrators, and they may even need to operate a large fleet of such models when the time for fleet replacement come again. I should add on that, given now SG5999Z is registered, it's more or less confirmed that the trial is successful and they are keeping the bus permanently (and/or it's a sign to procure more buses with such specifications). As such, the question that I just raised in the previous paragraph does not apply in the context of SG5999Z.

      Unless they built a small terminal after Parkway or extend 966 to terminate at Lor 1 via Mountbatten.965 better stay with Woodlands since it just looping at Sengkang.969 would be better if majority stays at Amdep.

      IMO the empty plot of land adjacent to the Amber Rd roundabout (between The Cape and Silversea condos) can be utilized. Can build a small terminal consisting about 5-6 parking lots and 15 should terminate there too.

      LTA should build a new bus terminal next to the Tanjong Katong TEL station, 15 and 966 should terminate there.

    • 5380 is SP.

      4 days isnt much shouldnt suspect perm just based on that, unless a perm bus is seen on other svcs repeatedly.

      Before this also on 54 for 1 week but just replacing another bus under maintenance.

    • There is a likely chance Citaros (or SMRT MAN NL323F) will replace K230UBs in services 160/170 before Bukit Merah takeover. So what they need to do is SPAD-register it and third brake light installed before operating on the newer contract.

      What do they need to do?

      http://www.spad.gov.my/sites/default/files/permohonanbaharukategoribas.pdf - use the form 1 day after the tender announcement.

      Now, they don't know what is the outcome for the tender. The tender will have to lialise with SPAD in the southern part of Malaysia for the registration of about 80-100 buses; which they are pending more time. I remembered public transport operators had to seek permission to register 80-100 buses (from the present 50 bus limit in 170 in the past).

      For JB, I think 1 out of 4 buses for 170 will go to Larkin, 3 out of 4 buses will go to JB Sentral.

       

      In total, 260 single deckers and 50 double deckers.

      WLDEP doesn't accept Mercedes buses except O405G's. All other Mercs are banned by WLDEP.
