    • The Singapore government should stop buying luxury buses which are not necessary to run public bus services. Otherwise, if bus fares and other related fees (eg. advertising) do not increase correspondingly, the additional costs may cause the government to run into deficit, and create a financial burden for the future generations of Singapore.

      Whatever happened to the 1MDB should be prevented from happening here. Thus, may I urge the Singapore government to stop buying luxury buses like 3-door buses, charging ports and self-driving buses, but just provide the basic buses to run the public bus services. Thank you.

      No chassis, can do it. Period.

      dun worry, our local favourite bus supplier (MAN) will come up with something no matter what..  however, what is the price to specially supply 100 unit of this bus is another issue...

      They’ve already cut cost by appointing Gemilang to build the bodywork

      I suupose the third door will be a single type..The bus will have lesser seats but more standing place and good for feeder service..Should order 150 at least.
