      I don't know la.. I am not expert, only ex-bird.


      u could say that for those 951E AM. Only 1 of out 7 buses do 960 after that. The rest empty go depot so idk what they do after that i know 5814Z do AM n PM 951E 5173P suspect 960 AM 951E PM maybe same BC

      SMRT Amdep is the only depot that deployed new BCs straight to trunk service.

      New BC deployment is usually feeder,short trunk,trunk then go standby.

      Woodlands Reg Int is usually 965.

      Sembawang Int is 859,882 or 883.

      Yishun Int is 853,854 & 855.


      858 got alot of new BCs lately. 965 also. the old BC upgrade to DD. 966 also the same. Old SD BC upgrade to DD. New BC do 966

      First of all your personal record must be good.No accident not much MC/UL within confirmation then they will recommend you to go for DD training within 4-6 months.Bendy training also same,If your performance is good within 10-12 months then they will call you for bendy training.

      As for the two foreign operators,You’re required to drive both SD & DD so no excuse for saying you’re afraid of driving DD buses.I think SBST also start to follow suit.

      I got many BC friends driving all SD service drive DD once every 3 months.


      I heard bendy/DD got allowance. That why most of the feeders BC still drive their current svc for over 10 20 years

    • im very curious

      how long do new drivers will be driving SD after pass

      I saw some new drivers 6 months now drive bendy some drive DD already. Some full package.

      But some i see drove for 1-2 years still drive SD slots

      This one can request or based on customer svc etc

      Also there will be mass deployment in coming months which rumoured that some of the OCs from AM/KJ will be transfer to WL.KJ will take Citaro and AM will get A22 instead.

      Some of KJ B9TL will be exchanged with AM A95.


      Due to 0405s dying?

      Because new BCs leh,Unless its their 2nd or 3rd svc.

      My KJ BC friend usually drive 307,308,920 & 922 for their maiden svc for a week or two before deployed to 172,927,973,975 for about 2-3 weeks.Their final svc will be those trunks like 61,67,176,188,700,970 & 985 for a month before going standby.

      WL new BCs usually get 901,904,911,912 or even 913 SD slots.

      2nd svc usually will be 178,187,925 or 962.


      WLDEP not alot of svc to start with those 961 960 BCs are really permanent one. WL new BC drive 911 for 3-6 months then change svc Some BC i know drive 911 for 3-6 months then suddenly driv bendy

      They should at least drive 859/A/B,882,883 for a start.


      why risky? too long journey?

      i wonder what reason until change depot No wonder lately i see a makcik with tudung driving 858 plus some new faces. New BCs learn 858 power ah lately quite alot of BC learn bendy when bendy are phasing out

      Usually the cameos will be between Woodlands based svc,Sembawang and Sembawang and Yishun with Yishun.


      that one i realize since seletar took over. they wont suddenly take buses from yishun. They like have a pool of buses bouncing around woodlands, sembawang n yishun. Hardly cross over
