Main article: Alexander Dennis Enviro500
The Enviro500 is a low-floor, three-axle double-deck transit bus built by Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL) since 2002. All Enviro500 buses in Singapore are of the third-generation make, better referred to as the Enviro500 MMC, which has been in production since 2012.
SMRT Buses was initially the sole operator of the Enviro500 MMC in Singapore bringing in an initial batch of 201 buses in 2014, With the gradual implementation of the Bus Contracting Model (BCM), Enviro500 buses owned by the Government were also operated by Tower Transit, who was awarded the Bulim Bus Package.
Second Batch of 15 buses
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) placed orders for fifteen (15) more ADL Enviro500 MMC buses in late 2016, to expand the existing bus pool under the Bus Contracting Model (BCM).
The second batch of Enviro500 MMC buses feature the same technical specifications as the initial 201 buses delivered in 2014. Although ADL had launched a Facelifted Enviro500 MMC in late 2015, the LTA did not opt for the newer bodywork design.
These buses, which have been delivered to Singapore, have yet to enter revenue service. They come equipped with USB Charging Ports and tinted passenger windows. A pair of emergency hammers are located next to the upper deck front windscreen, with another pair mounted above the rear window, a feature common to Enviro500 buses built for the Hong Kong market. They will be registered from SG5700T to SG5714D.
