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.
