Euro 6 Double Deck buses procured by LTA

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has put up a tender for the Procurement of Euro 6 Double Deck Diesel Buses on Thursday, 28 December 2017 (Contract Ref. PT322).

This large scale tender comes after the procurement of 50 diesel hybrid buses and 60 electric buses earlier in the same year. While the number of units has yet to be announced, it is believed that at least 200 units will be procured.

Euro VI (Euro 6) buses were first introduced in December 2017 with the launch of SG2017C, a MAN A95 bus and Singapore’s first Euro IV bus. A Volvo B8L, registered as SG4003D, has yet to enter revenue service.

Tender submissions close on 25 Jan 2018 at 4:00PM (extended to 8 Feb 2018 by 4:00 PM on 22 Jan 2018; later extended again to 13 Feb 2018 by 4:00PM).

Land Transport Guru looks forward to having more environmentally-friendly buses on the roads for a greener future.

    Update: My friend saw a Euro 6 A95 without foglights (similar to the new Euro 6 A22s) parked inside STK recently.
    STK/MAN must have won this Euro 6 DD tender.

    I guess we can confidently say that “runners” in this double deck procurement race will be MAN/Gemilang and Volvo/Wright (new body design?) – but what of ADL – are they a possibility?

        I think the Volvo B8L would be brought once again in huge demands. As for the A95, there are 56 spares laying over at bulim, so i dont think LTA is gonna buy more?

        But what i am sure, LTA will definitely replace all those retiring tridents with either (1) 20 A95 from BULIM (2) Buy the B8L in minor quantities and test it out first before buying in bulk.

          To add on, i dont really thinl the tridents will get a lifespan extension unlike the B10M.

          2 reasons…
          (1) As mentioned earlier, there are 56 spare buses in BULIM, even tho some are for the retiring bendies, but in 2018 there wont be much being deregistered.

          (2) Some B10M have extended lifespan because there was a shortage of mercedes benz buses to replace all 50 B10M when SEDEP already not receiving enough BSEP SD.

          Those 56 is just nice for the retiring bendies,As for euro6 DDs,they definitely need more to replace Tridents,VSOs and probably the euro3 B9TL.
