Ad-Hoc deployment of Volvo B5LH buses on Sembawang Bus Services

Last week (8 – 11 September 2021), the Volvo B5LH bus was deployed on various bus services based in Sembawang, as well as Tower Transit Service 854.

These Sembawang-based bus services (167, 882, 882A, 883, 980) would be operated by Tower Transit from 3 Oct 2021, under the Sembawang-Yishun Bus Package.

The first revenue service trip operated by Tower Transit using the Volvo B5LH bus was on 8 Sep 2021. The bus (SG3016Z) was deployed only for a trip of Service 854 from Bedok to Yishun, departing Bedok at 1123hrs.
