      Go Ahead dreaming or what?

      I think Shenzhen bus will get it as Singapore support China one road one what Xi said. Or TT. GA bidding is reasonable as consider the salaries and other operation need. SMRT and sbst has Temaskie support.  Shenzhen also has hong kong KMB as shareholder not suprise if they get it.

      Bendies is well utilised at Changi Airport....during peak periods 858 pax face will show huge relief if A24 come back to back..

      If people dun want DD then more bendies? Then LTA will say very road-space wasting.

      851 always have potential for good loading because the route it serves and it is actually not very winding.  Even evening as well - A22 reaching Yishun is fully seated with 3/4 standees.

      I am sure if they put HC buses on 167/980 their loadings will improve too, but SMRT wont coz SMRT want to herd and chase more people to their godforsaken but money-spinning NSL.

      Next year SBST will deploy 50-50 SD/DD for service 851.

      117 packed only for 2-3 trips only...More than justified SBST deploy 9 DDs & 4 SDs.

      Should be 7 DDs & 6 SDs...

      980 morning peak 2-3 buses sure packed..Saturday afternoon onwards also packed with Ah Nehs and Bai Yas

      I prefer 60% SD & 40% DD deployment..Svc 3 weekdays frequency during peak hours is between 6-8 mins per bus and 11-13 mins during off peak...

      I prefer SD-SD-DD-SD-SD-DD-SD-SD-DD

      Anyway, svc 3 does cover the high loading sector of 83 along Punggol Central, so in net high capacity is still maintained + there is 85... and for the last 2 stops there is 136, 381, 386 too. 

      For Punggol service

      3>12 SDs & 8 DDs

      83>5 SDs & 3 DDs

      85>10 DDs & 5 SDs

      136>16 SDs & 3 DDs

      For Pasir Ris service

      6>6 DDs & 2 SDs

      359>9 SDs & 3 DDs

    • Buyers prevail on the EUR/USD pair. I expect the further growth in the medium term. The TA pattern called Inverse Head & Shoulders emerged on the daily chart. It indicates a bullish sentiment, so I’ll buy EUR/USD when it fixed above 1.1870. The nearest goal for taking profit is 1.1900.

    • I think that the activity will be low today due to the US holidays.

      The bullish sentiment prevails on USD/CAD. The Canadian dollar is under pressure due to the report on retail sales. I don’t rule out the further quotes growth. I’ll buy USD/CAD, if it fixes above the 1.2735 local support. The pair may move to 1.2760-1.2775.

      JW Ave 1 -- 30, 31(-2/3)

      JE Ave 1 -- 33(-2/4), 32(-7/6), 31(-3/2), 33(0/2)

      BB West Ave 2 -- 27(-1/2), 22(-5/0)

      BB West Ave 4 -- 21(-5/4)

      BB West Ave 7 -- 20(-1/0)

      BB West Ave 5 -- 18(-3/1)

      BB Road -- 19(0/1), 18(-5/1)

      CCK Road -- 19(0/1), 15(-5/1)

      BP Road -- 11(-5/1), 13(0/2), 11(-3/1)

      BKE -- Express

      Wlds Ave 3 -- 8(-6/3) Marsiling MRT

      Wlds Int -- 0(-8/0)

       

      *Highest loading occured at JE Ave 1/ Central = 33 pax. Highest pax boarding/alighting activity is at Yuhua Mkt & Hawker Centre.

      *Demand is still quite strong in this non-peak hour even though front bus is just only 7 min away. We can see from here that the highest demand stretch is along Jurong West/East Town and BB Town. Loading fell drastically after BP Town.

      *Pax boarding/alighting activity is well spread throughout the route.

      Overall this svc is doing very good even in this non-peak hour. It mainly shuttles commuters between Jurong/ BB / BP / Wlds town.

      On the other hand, I think svc 178 (which has the same starting point and ending point with svc 187) demand is much lower right? Who has the observations?

      You should do 187 DD during peak hours. The loading trends are quite interesting :)

      167 should have 20 SD / 4 DD

      980 should have 12 SD / 4 DD
