      unlikely it’s new route. cuz 974 just launched only. need to make sure that 974 is a success before moving on to (1) increase capacity of 974 and (2) open new routes if necessary.

      if the man a22 is for route testing on 179, that would be nice. would like to see more variants of buses on jurong west bus routes besides just scania k230ub, volvo b9tl and mercedes-benz citaro.

    • Anyone knows where the SMRT AMDEP B9TLs are at? Don't see it on services such as 169 and 854 anymore.

      Either at Woodlands Bus Park or Seletar Depot.They only come to Amdep for periodic maintenance.If They’re deploy for Woodlands service like 169,856,963,965,966 or 969 they will refuel and bus wash at Wldep before parking at the bus park.Yesterday i saw a B9TL on service 854 If I’m not mistaken.

    • I feel that Service 74e should extend its operating hours as such:

       

      AM Peak Hours - 0630H to 0800H

      PM Peak Hours - 1700H to 1830H

       

      When CRL opens, this service can operate full day to complement the line.
