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.

    This place is so cool! I got to discover all types of buses in Singapore! (I was interested in buses since I was 3 years old and kept telling my parents what bus is this what bus is that…)

    I missed Scania K230U3 buses…The new MAN A22 buses are uncomfortable…Seats on the last row is very warm after sitting down for >15 mins. Then I realised the engine compartment is right behind the seats. I think the heat insulation is poor. Also the seat at second last row on the passenger side is crammed because there is a box underneath the seat in front, forcing the passenger to bend their legs when sitting down. This would be worse if the journey is an hour trip
