      The 20-30 minutes for 912 is the result of splitting “912E” (Prior to the standardisation of ‘T’ prefix) into “912A” and “912B” in 2017. That why 912 had a long headway while most trip on 912 is the terminating variant (912A, 912B).

      This however, in reality, result in a wastage of resource for 912 as most trip are being closed to empty due to bus-branching with 912A/B. That why I strongly discourage the use of high capacity on 912 and deploy it on terminating trip instead.

      In case you ask me why bus-branching occur, in the introduction poster of 912A/B, SMRT stated that the A/B variants are staggered/slot in between of 912, to create a consistency model, but LTA Ops for Bus Performance Metrics, indicates that 912A/B should operate independently of 912. This means that SMRT had to operates both 912 & 912A/B departing from the interchange at SAME TIMING or 1-2 mins differences. <– Joke Right?

      Secondly, with operations shifted from WTBI to WITH, LTA get SMRT to operates bendy on 912 because they don't wanna to built more parking space for bendy layover. Then guess what? SMRT layover 912 bendy at ALIGHTING BERTH so that 912 could perform according to the Bus Performance Metrics, resulting in constant JAM at WITH.

      Genius of LTA to WASTE TAX PAYER MONEY & LENGTHENING OF JOURNEY TIME for WOODLANDERS!

        WITH already have plenty of bendy parking lots, there isn’t a need to built more. Just because you don’t see them parking doesn’t mean they aren’t suitable for bendy buses.

          Yes, WITH had bendy parking lots, All lots are able to park bendy, but the official bendy lots is just a few which usually reserved for 858. That is why most Woodlands Feeder’s Bendy do unofficial roadside parking. Exception is 912 which did the layover at alighting berth. 913 Bendy during peak hours doesn’t park. It just circle round the interchange till the time is out. For 911/913 buses with layover, the driver typically drove to the bus park with passengers onboard, unless the layover time is extremely short, then the bus usually layover at the side before the respective boarding berth.

          Due to LTA parking requirement, a 12m bus need approx 18m long parking space (if it need to reverse out), which is why all lots are able to park bendy. A 18m bendy bus need approx 24m long parking space (if it need to reverse out). That is why most bendy park at the extreme end (where it’s doesn’t need to reverse because those are the only official bendy lots. The rest, are converted from bendy lots to normal 12m lot for the additional parking space (increase in parking lots). Those official lots for Bendy do have BENDY word on the ground if I recalled correctly.

          That is why the old WRI features many Roadside Parking (including the entrance ramp), but now there is seldom any parking of such buses in the WITH.

          In fact, all Boarding Berth in WITH are capable for bendy, but those 911 , 912 & 858’s berth features a wider space margin for bendy. That is why the berth in WITH are slightly longer than those in other interchange. So this explains why bendy for WOODLANDS is for 912 and 858.

          Trust me, I had observed and seen, a typical bus from crossing the traffic light, down the ramp, to alighting berth needs 5 minutes in average during peak hours and 2 minutes during off-peak hours. In case you wonder, during peak hours, buses do wait before the traffic light frequently despite the green light just because they can’t enter/proceed to the ramp due to long queue, especially the Ave 7 entrance.
