    • Just now a SBST Citaro (I believe should be on svc 5 PSR bound) broke down along Tiong Bahru Rd just before Tiong Bahru Plaza, causing a huge jam and delay along that direction because the next lane was too tight and the buses behind had to slowly squeeze past the citaro. A few BCs from the buses behind actually got off their buses to aid the citaro BC to help move the bus...

      Now SG5913,5918,5919 & 5920 park at engineering observation lot.GAS only do manual washing for their A95 by the way.Once a week,STK will inspect the warning systems on those buses.

    • SBS3322H change to weird looking side mirrors,near similiar to OC but with short handle.

      974 has one lot at JKI, the rest at BPBP

      Some 974 buses make a return trip immediately aft reaching joo koon, same for at BP.

      Meanwhile 974 demand is not bad, can have standees during peak hours

      Agreed,TTS should lease the two A95 and try to ask LTA if any operators under usage of the DD buses they lease like SMRT..Collect dust inside depot yet still using O405Gs for trunk svc.If TTS want to save cost they might consider leasing 5 SG A22 and 3 A95 from SMRT.
