      SBS6380P (BUDEP 66) on Service 66 (in revenue service) was found to have a faulty EZ-Link Reader (all 4) due to problems with CFMS. Was asked to request for a refund at the interchange, then the EZ-Link Reader worked again, but showed 'Aft Allenby Rd' instead of 'Balmoral Plaza' (reader went backwards). It is not known whether it was sent back to the depot.

      SBS8720D on Service 112 has a 'High Air Consumption' problem and there was a beep once in a while. BC called OCC and they told BC to drive back to Hougang Ctrl Int to report on the situation. Evidently can hear air sound (like leaking) from outside.

    • for some reason idk why still got some service 55 service displaying 'Siglap Rd (Loop)', never update to 'Upp East Coast Ter' till now

    • quite a few a22s/a95s observed to have an updated Mobitec EDS display format. Number and words are now packed much closer together as compared to the old font. Examples are SMB3166X on 807 and SG5888K on 964.
