Singapore Bus Services - Update 2001
Following on from the success of or first SINGAPORE BUS SERVICES video produced in 1999, we have made a return visit to see how the scene has changed.
We visit the busy interchanges at Boon Lay, Clementi, Jurong East, Ang Mo Kio, Toa Payoh, Bedok and Tampines. At Ang Mo Kio we are treated to the delights of a tropical storm, together with an appearance of the unique Leyland Lynx with Alexander bodywork. At Tampines we see the two Volvo articulated single deckers in service. There are still many 2 axle non air conditioned Leyland and Volvo Olympians in service, the former with Alexander ‘R’ bodies, the later have Alexander bodies with ‘Royale’ front ends.
In the UK we visit Manchester to see former SBS7204J in service as First Manchester 3016, and there are views of former SBS7251Y, now AV39 in the Metroline fleet in London.
Filmed in April 2001,
this video shows the Singapore bus fleet in a ‘look’ it has had for many
years, this is soon to change - in November 2001 the company launched a
new name - SBS TRANSIT, and a new livery of orange, white and purple……just
watch this space!
