      LTA should build a new bus terminal next to the Tanjong Katong TEL station, 15 and 966 should terminate there.

    • 1. Buses - LTA need to place in another order for 150 new high capacity buses to replace those ageing buses going off as well as fleet addition. Hopefully more A95 and Enviro.

      2. Sembawang Yishun Package - LTA start the bidding exercise for the 5th bus package, also to look forward to the completion of new Mandai bus depot.

      3. MRT lines - LTA is yet to announce the full details and alignment for the Jurong Region Line and Cross Island Line. Hopefully the JRL can be announced in 1Q 2018.

      966 abit hard, unless LTA can build another bus terminating point in Marine Parade area. 965 should be the one to go dual control instead.

    • SMRT should not have followed BCM redeployment in the first place. At least let 169 856 858 963 965 966 969 stay under WLDEP first. Until maybe SMRT ease up after Seletar takeover or wait till Mandai integrated depot is ready. By letting AMDEP take over the mentioned services now, they are screwing up the bus services even more.

      I hope this is the case. Since yesterday there are 60+ double decks registered, LTA should have immediately assigned 30 units to SMRT straightaway for the old bendies going off 29/12 batch. I seriously dun understand why LTA still want to go and extend the lifespan of those old bendies on the first place.

      I believe that 184 might have gotten a fair share of DDs by now if not because of the stupid extension that LTA have given to the old bendies.

      It is indeed a waste that the Citaros get registered and put to storage, while the old buses get lifespan extension due to "insufficient buses". LTA should have planned ahead to register the Citaros earlier just in time for DM3500 retirement.

      Not sure if there are anymore plans to introduce more new services for the next 3 months. As for the Seletar package, I believe that there are still plenty more of non-BSEP fleets to be redeployed on the affected SBST services and by then more non-BSEP fleets can be spared out to HG/BB to replace the DM3500s, nearing the Seletar takeover date.

      Majority should be heading to SMRT to replace those bendies going off this coming 29/12.

      Hopefully SBST can also take in 15 A95s to replace all the Tridents that are in bad shape.

      LTA should start consider the euro6 MAN NL283F 

      But then SBST still need 30 units to replace the remaining extended DM3500s next year. Probably they will be replaced once the 50 Volvo hybrid buses arrive from 2nd half of next year.

    • I am just wondering if the 30 extended DM3500s are waiting for the diesel hybrid buses to replace them by 2nd half of next year.

      Btw have all the Citaros been registered already? Anymore unregistered ones still stuck inside C&C?

      Ever since 169 and 856 went under AMDEP, I have been noticing that AMDEP show a lot of favoritism and gave more DDs to 856, which resulted in more ex-WLDEP NWAB bendies thrown to Yishun side especially 854.

      Before the BCM deployment, 854 was still doing well with the ex-KJDEP A95s while 856 under WLDEP side still got plenty of NWAB bendies.

      300 used to have DDs (VO2X) before Tibs took over CCK services if I am not wrong.

      Can’t remember if 307 ever had DD deployment back then?

      Who knows, SMRT might start deploying DDs on 300 and 302 starting this sun...

      Furthermore KJDEP will be left with very few bendies after this month end.
