Random Shots: TIB959S on SMRT route 961 January 27, 2009Posted by hafizbam in Deployment Updates, Random Shots.
Starting yet another journey from Woodlands Regional Interchange to Geylang Lorong 1 Terminal (essentially Kallang MRT station) is TIB959S running SMRT route 961. The bus, a Volgren-bodied Mercedes Benz 0405, has only been recently transferred from Ang Mo Kio Depot where it was deployed on service 969, to Woodlands Depot currently running as a spare.
This bus is one of many other 12-metre buses from Kranji and Ang Mo Kio depots which have migrated north to Woodlands Depot (WLDEP) following the gradual introduction of the new Mercedes Benz OC500LEs, as well as to replace the void left behind by the older Nissan U31RCN and Scania L113CRL ELBO buses based in WLDEP scheduled for lay-up.
