      tender closed in Feb and usually, they will take 3-6 months to evaluate and award.the contract..  so if they award in May....the earliest the DDs will come should be in Sept? 2-3 months to source/produce + shipment? 

      The Tridents may get lifespan extension as well..

      Somehow I felt that LTA wasted too many new A95s on those newly introduced bus services like 147e, 12e, 7A/7B etc (I wonder how is the loading for these routes). There could be put to better use to replace those old fleets instead.

      Tridents and B10TLs can last 19 years. Like Dennis Trident case, the first bus, SBS9671E, will be de-registered on 4 November 2020.

      They will be replaced by Euro 6 double deckers. The tender is only for replacing Tridents and B10TLs. Euro 5 double deckers were all given to SMRT. Now, they are still having more Euro 5 double deckers under LTAEBS (Bus Storage at Government Related Depots).

      Tridents lifespan expire in 2018 (accordingly to sgwiki). So there are chance they might get 1 yr extension until the E6 DD came in. Seem like there are many tridents in sv74 nowadays.

      Loading on 12e is 20-30 pax, a SD would be a luxury.

      147e can get upto 45-60 pax during peak hours. Quite good and ok to ply DDs.

      7A/7B depends on which bus comes first. Bunching is even more common now. DDs are okay for this service but maybe need to reduce the fleet. 

      12e is the one where DDs should be immediately swapped out for SDs.

      7A/B is quite okay since they will change to service 7 after terminating points.

      147e max 2 trips you can see lower deck fully seated and a few pax at upper deck.Still can use a couple of SDs and deploy 2 A95 on parent svc.

      12e can use 4 SD / 3 DD.Maybe should skip Bedok South...

      Chinatown bound svc mostly get pampered..

    • Should have take 5884/5885/5902 from SMRT and deploy each to Amdep,Hgdep and Sldep.

      HGDEP tend to put all their outgoing oldest fleets to spares. Still remember those days when the whole lots of MK3s were all thrown out to spares just before their retirement.

      Surprisingly the 8 remaining DM3500s under HGDEP are all with perm status instead of thrown out to spares.

    • The Dennis Tridents will still have up to 2020 / 2021 to retire.

      The Volvo B10TLs will still have up to 2022 / 2023 to retire.

      Actually all 7 were transfer to SBST from SMRT on around 29/3 for storage. That time only update as 4 buses transfer only. All 7 buses are without logo. 

      no idea for which new service n dunno why SBST did not take them for SEDEP service. Guess they are reserve for some other purpose
