Last fun fact: False, if what you said is true, there will be lots of articles about bendies killing people and probably LTA would have banned them....or even in other countries (by their transport authority, of course)....

FF80: A UK / UMW Dennis Lance has 37 Seats.
FF81: The Dennis Lances are slightly longer than O405s.
FF82: 3 foot long fluorescent tubes are used to light up destination flip dots of O405s.
FF83: The Kranji Station Bus Stop is like that of a bus interchange. Boarding areas are designated for services.
Yours Sincerely,
King Citaro

FF84: 61 is the one who disappeared bendies and became WAB after that, on 3 December 2011. Ironically it was temporary shift for Dennis Lances.

FF85: The 2008 edition of the Singapore Airshow had the shuttles deployed from two locations: one from Pasir Ris, which was free; another from Expo, where a $5 fare applies.

A mix of rigids and bendies were used for the shuttles. Some of them had banner ads on their sides.

The travel route to CEC mostly utilised Loyang Ave and Nicoll Dr, except for shuttles returning from CEC to Expo.

FF86: There's a long strip installed on all the O405 Hispanos in SMRT Buses. This strip can be pressed - it's for the bell. (Try it next time when you happen to take one.)

FF87: The sliding plug doors on the MAN A22 production batch are manufactured by Spanish manufacturer Masats. Their website is here: http://www.masats.es/en/.

FF88: Before 2008, all SBST buses did not have the "Please do not grab this pole" stickers on the poles of the doors. It was only sometime in 2008 were the stickers applied, first on the newer buses, then onto the older buses. Even the then retiring Scania N113CRBs got them too. Currently, all buses have such stickers applied.

After an accident in 2008, SBS 8074K initially had the stickers applied only to the front doors.

At that time when the stickers were first pasted, we called them the "yellow stickers".
