Non air-con buses survive only on feeder ruotes and stuff.

Maybe we're all a little addicted to air-con?
We should learn to enjoy the nice, warm climate in this wonderful, equatorial island!

No lah...there are still quite a number of semi-aircon bus service routes. Like when they made service 151 half aircon last yr or something, it made lots of students really unhappy!

SBS Transit Bus Service 93, a trunk service, has non air conditioned double decker buses serving this route. But more recently there's fewer non air conditioned buses on this route.

Never rode on a non air conditioned SMRT Bus for over 5 years already.

From 9 Feb 2004, the Sentosa Causeway bridge foothpath and walk-in ticketing booth will be closed for development works on the new Sentosa Express railway system. To get to Sentosa, please hop onto the Sentosa bus at either HarbourFront Bus Interchange or Sentosa Gateway bus stop.

Well.....met too.....try sitting in a non-aircon bus from Hougang to Clementi, and you will realise aircon is not a luxury...its a neccesity!

Well..i don't think its going to happen, not in a loong time anyway

Fortunately for us commuters, SBS and SMRT is already moving into the right direction (with regard to replacing old buses). I can appreciate if SBS replace their ageing fleet tho. Some of the existing air-con buses are getting rickety.

I love SMRT. The buses are all new as compared to SBS Transit's. Sure their fleet is smaller and the company is younger. Thank god my area is served by SMRT. I counted at least 11 Bendy Buses (The latest version) in the Yishun Bus Interchange Parking Bay alone. Wow!
