    • Lol, SG2017C is the first SBST A95 with what looks like a full set of SBST interior stickers. For good reason.

       

      Also, heard that another batch of MANs is due for transfer to SBST, including, some say, a batch 2 A95 with charging ports

      BCM is about SBST & SMRT,You just knew ah?B9TL is already SBST-Spec,MAN buses is SMRT-spec..Even if the buses go for refurbish,its still need to follow the spec

    • SG5790-5799 along with a few batch 3 A95?

    • Until now,Only TTS & GAS doesn't have any UsB charger buses....

    • It's amazing and also a bit of weird that SBSt buses with SMB plates. It's a history written today. I will not write off the possibilities that those MAN buses will be deployed to AMK/YCK services since the Seletar package takeover effect. Even K230UB E5 b2 back ups appear in Yishun feeders might happen as well.

    • So far, SBST non-BCM buses have appeared on all sorts of SE services, including the ex-SMRT ones. KUBs on AMK feeders and 800, while SBST Wright appeared on 851

      Considering all WAB, €4 and above vehicles have been expropriated by LTA, anything is possible.

    • Went on land transport guru. Net and saw a page about sbs transit man A95 3 door trial. The page says the trial will start on 9 Apr 2018 and last for 3 months. Photos of the bus with service 7 route is visible on the photos. But I don't know whether is really on sv 7 or they just use sv 7 as a placeholder during training & familiarisation. Will operate out of BNDEP.

      Not that surprised if it is trialed on Service 7

      Would be interesting if it cameos on 7A

      Yeah since sv 7 driver is quite familiar with Man A95 liao. Seriously on the other note where the hell is SG 4003 D? That volvo B9TL break down is it? 2 different MAN A95 got put on service duty liao while this B8L still inside depot sleeping. Or sbs wants SG 4003 D to be a training bus just like SBS 7888k?

      Possibly might be under training duties as a new model, probably will not be in revenue service soon

    • SMB3075A - only BSEP A22 remain with SMRT. 

      Maybe got rejected by SBS just like SMB3052R got rejected by TT last time.
