Singapore Bus Services
SINGAPORE BUS SERVICES has a fleet of almost 3,000 vehicles. The fleet consists of Leylands, Volvos, Scanias, Mercedes, with bodies from Alexander and Duple Metsec. This video shot in October 1999, shows its vehicles in service at many locations on the island.
You will see 3-axle Leyland
and Volvo Olympians with Alexander ‘R’ air conditioned bodies (‘Superbus’),
some in quite amazing overall advertisements. Non air-con, 2-axle
Alexander Olympians, some with earlier style bodies, and some with ‘Superbus’
fronts. The latter are due to return to the U.K. to operate with
the FirstBus group - SBS7204J, the first to arrive here is seen operating
with First Pennine on this video!
There is footage of Leyland Atlanteans, also with Alexander bodies, which were built in 1984-6. Similar bodied Mercedes Benz 0305’s can also be seen. Single Deckers are represented by Mercedes, Volvo, Scania and Dennis. Their bodies by Duple Metsec and Alexander.
We also take a brief look back at 1993, and see operating one of the batch of 100 Leyland Atlanteans that were sold to Citybus of Hong Kong.
So if you enjoy seeing U.K. style buses operating in a tropical setting - this is the video for you!
