Bus Ownership matters

See also: Bus Contracting Model, Transitioning of Buses to BCM The rollout of the Bus Contracting Model has brought along some complications in terms of bus ownership structure, and are elaborated further in the abovementioned articles. In general, all SG-plated buses are government-owned, except for a few buses (SG400x-series) offered to LTA as a trial. LTA also owns buses formerly purchased under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme which bear SBS- or SMB- prefixes. These government-owned buses are then leased to all bus operators for the provision of public bus services. For buses that remain under the ownership of the legacy operators (SBS Transit or SMRT Buses), the LTA leases these buses from the operators by paying an availability fee that is equivalent to the depreciation value of these buses. The financial cost of doing so is equivalent to the depreciation value of these buses.

    Based on evidence in recent years, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) will only procure fully electric buses in order to have a 100% fully electric public bus fleet in Singapore by 2040.
