    • SG5832X was spotted in Tampines today? Did it go on service?

      Still no news on the ex-SMRT MANs?

      these ex-SMRT Mans (A22/A24) are for seletar package.. .so high chance that they wont be in revenue service until SBST took over those yishun services.....

      Only possibility is if they are deployed on other Seletar package services.

      I suspect they will be deployed before the takeover at Yishun though. Curious what advantage is there to transferring over so many buses so early (unless the buses have been deployed to training, but there aren't any pics). Cos if it's model familiarisation surely two of each would suffice, like TT taking 2 A22s and 2 Enviros

    • Probably to accelerate the process of repainting the buses to lush green.

      或许是为了要加快巴士重新上色的步伐。

      Mungkin untuk mempercepatkan proses mengecat semula bas.

      ஒருவேளை பஸ் திருப்பியனுப்பப்படுவதை துரிதப்படுத்துவதற்கு.

      they are being used for BC and mechanics training purpose.... is it very early to transfer 8 buses over? 4 more months will be start of Seletar package..and further someone else, said that only 40% of the SMRT BCs is going over to SBST.. 

      further, if the A24 is indeed for sv24, it will take some time for all the BCs to learn the bendy (the BCs have their daily schedule and maybe can only spare 1-2 hrs to learn). 

      LTA allocate at least 10 new buses to TT at least 6 months ahead of the package start date.  there isnt any new buses allocate to SBST as of now..

      new SBST BCs are learning A24? heard that SMRT BCs can only drive bendy after 4 years in service, and yet SBST newbies BC are learning A24 immediately?

      TTS & GAS newbies can drive DD even though they only worked for a few days..Heard SBST also no more DD probation for newbies

      Makes sense. I forgot about TT being allocated 10 new buses. But  I just get a feeling it won't be 24, somehow.

      Nope. still pixel and old livery with the smal SBST sticker at the sides and at the front

      They change tho for some reason. They used the standard SBST sticker (SD type) at the place they put the SMRT logo last time. Now revert back to the mini sticker. 

      Most likely lush green by next year.

      I don’t mind B9TL on service with full DDs like 964 @ 972.Since B9TL is LTA BSEP buses and spread to all operators why didn’t the A95s too?

    • SMRT should deployed on relaxed SMRT svc
