    SMB8006S, a SBS Transit MAN A24 is the first SG Bendy to be green.

    Hopefullt a second batch will be procured, many routes could use bendys esp extended routes like 858 and bendys are iconic to Singapire so once the O405Gs retire only the MAN A24s will be present to carry on the legscy of bendy bus operations in Singapore

      Should buy 110 Euro6 A24 for short distance feeders and to supplement airport services.
      Feeders like 240,285,291,293,334,804,811,812,903,911,913,920 & 922 can stick with SD/DD..

    What I understand is the A24 are not BSEP buses; hence is still owned by SMRT, but LTA leases them from SMRT for the BCM.
    So this is the first time the tendered bus packages are not using BSEP and govt-purchased SG-plated buses.

    MAN A24 should also be in GCM as well. SMRT used to park some bendy buses at Bulim Bus Depot. Should hand some over to Tower Transit / future operator of Seletar bus depot other than SMRT/SBS. Bendy buses should be good for routes serving wide roads and high demand. If part of the roads are narrow, rigid buses are still ideal.

    Bulim (Tower Transit): 66, 79, 97, 97e, 106, 189, 334
    Seletar (SMRT or future operator): 24, 70/70M, 76, 133, 135, 162/162M, 811, 812, 850E, 860
    Loyang (If Seletar goes to Go-Ahead): 3, 12, 34 or 36, 43/43M, 62, 82, 83, 85, 118, 358, 359, 518

      I totally agree that LTA could use some MAN A24s for BCM , but these bendies take almost double the space of DDs or SDs on normal roads. All bus service are to take the DDs as a high-capacity bus in the future and the Bendies will have to find somewhere else to call home. But these information are not confirmed , I hope these bendies continue service as its iconic to Singapore.

        It depends if LTA wants to make an extension or make a new one but that will cost alot of money

      Sorry. Seletar goes to SBST
