Double Deck Euro 6 Diesel Buses
2. The procurement of these buses is part of LTA’s efforts to replace our ageing bus fleet with cleaner and more efficient buses and improve service standards. The buses will progressively arrive in Singapore from next year, with the final bus delivered in 2020.
3. ST Engineering Land Systems Ltd had submitted a high quality proposal with the best value for money, and hence was awarded the contract. The company has a strong track record, with their buses forming about one quarter of the entire public bus fleet currently in Singapore. In determining the award of the tender, LTA considered the various aspects of the participating bidders, such as their relevant experience, track records, technical capabilities and compliance with local regulations.
4. The new buses will comply with the Euro 6 engine emission standard, the latest standard required for new diesel buses registered from 1 January 2018 onwards. Besides cleaner and lower exhaust emissions, the buses will include other improvements for a safer and more comfortable ride as well as an enhanced Passenger Information Display System.
