We all have relied / are relying on public transportation to get around our sunny little island. For most of us, before getting that driving license, the 2 door Mercedes (front door+back door ) used to be our mode of transport growing up.
Was reading up on the different types of public buses in Sg and realised that we used to have a much less homogeneous range of public buses in the past, so I'm just posting a few to bring back memories and keep them alive!
Do feel free to add on and share your fond memories of the buses in your life, and the memories associated with them :)
Mods please merge if there's a similar thread thanks, tried to find but can't
1. Starting with my fav, which I have taken alot (being a 90s kid) : Mercedes-Benz O405
This was used by both SBS(1989-2011) and SMRT(1994-2016) in various body types:
TIB832Z, Hispano Carrocera Bodywork (last SMRT O405, retired in sep 2016)
SBS O405, Duple Metsec bodywork
2. Volvo B57, introduced by SBS in 1979-1983 (New Zealand Motor Body)
These ran till 1996, and was one of the common sights in the 80s and early 90s
3. Albion Viking EVK41L , in the 1970s when SBS was first formed
Some units were first registered as early as 1967 onwards under the Hock Lee bus company, ran till 1987/88 before it left sg roads
4. Mercedes-Benz OF1413 ,1967 onwards
