    It seems like none of the SG Citaros made it to TTS Mandai second tranche. Or are they only going over during the third tranche?

      Well we have to wait and see this 3rd Oct.Even SG MAN A22 Euro V also no news.LTA allocation this time very weird,Unlike previously most buses follow rego sequence.Transition without Citaro is weird.

      I don’t know and I’m not positive any of them will…

      If TT don’t send their only Mandai Citaro to storage (whether upon the Govt’s instructions or otherwise) then sooner or later it will see action …

      Maybe the use of A22s on 858 was due to some instructions from the Govt?

      But I hope it will be sooner rather than later, or not at all …

    I wouldn’t mind if Svc 171 is given to SBST in return for Svc 860 to TTS. But since Svc 860 looping at YCK, it is rational for the service to go to SBST Seletar Package.

    Maybe for Svc 851 & Svc 852, they were intending to have a dual depot control with UPDEP & BBDEP? Just my assumption only.

      Seletar off service to Bt Merah is quite nearer compared to Bukit Batok so no point having dual control.853/M,854 & 854e should swap with 851,851e & 852.825 also should swap with 850E.Yishun feeders & 860 stays with Seletar.

      Seletar contract doesn’t allow multi-depot control, unlike Bukit Merah. That’s why UPDEP has buses allocated for other contracts.

        They can if they want but again there’s no need at all..Updep because currently have only 17 service thus some Bbdep service allocated to park there due to lack of space.Where do you get info LTA doesn’t allow dual depot control?Its more cost and time saving.
