In LTA's press release, only SMRT and SBST (current PTOs) are allowed to bid... Confused

O.O SMRT Buses's fleet is 990+ and SBST's fleet is more than 3000...

SMRT has more lines for operations and if a new line is completed, buses would have to go through rationalisation, which means to withdraw some buses along the new MRT line.
SMRT need to chiong because they don't have a lot of buses unlike SBST, SBST can just go smoothly without speeding.

Would be interesting to see Prime taxis operating DTL. Wonder what would be their uniform and must recuit more people, CSOs, Station manager and etc.

I'm looking at more of the perspective of the bus service quality rather than bus fleet... I think SMRT still stands out better than SBSTransit, even though SBSTransit serves my area. Smile

In a way, look at this. SMRT has around 900 buses total. SBS Transit has 1101 Scania K230UB Gemilang alone, excluding all other types of buses.

I'm voting SMRT. Downtown Line serves areas with more SMRT bus services If I recall correctly. This will allow for better rail-bus system integration.

Looks Like SMRT is the most preferred operator to operate the downtown line. Any views?

I'm not so bothered over the operator, as long as it's an MRT line, we'll all go crazy, go crazy, go crazy over it Big Grin
