Order of buses on sv 39 yesterday at 6:24pm:
SBS5191A (2nd last bus to Tampines)
SBS8348X (Under 2T slot)
So only a few buses?Will be good if you sit down at the bus stop after the Interchange during peak hours to spot all the fleet.
I aint got time for that actually. I only managed to find the buses as I was waiting for 39 and I was counting the buses. The reason why I opened this thread is because I want to make it easier for those who want to catch their favourite buses easier as well as find out their positions although its not complete
302 spotting between 4.41pm - 5.34pm, bad time to spot since split starts and some BCs have their paid mealbreak:
TIB1212G SMB1570A(982E x-over?) TIB1219M TIB1177A TIB1211J TIB1204E TIB1206C SMB3163D TIB1117Z TIB992U(302A) SMB8012Z TIB1177A(302A) SMB8028D
I am starting to think that SMRT prefers batch 3 MANs for 859. Why would SMB1367X disappear often when its supposed to appear everyday?
I'll try and observe 241's AP fleet and weekend fleet, the buses are as follows (3064P does appear occasionally during AM but I think 3064P is S shift)
AP buses (I'll oberseve the sequence when I'm free): SBS3014S, SBS3221K, SBS3644Z, SBS3809P, SBS3810M
S/E buses: SBS7539T, SBS7631J, SBS3064P (suspected)
243W Crossover: SBS3113P
I've once looked at the "folder" onboard SBS3644Z on a Saturday and it says 241-3A
Missing bus(es): SBS3214G or SBS3299L
Svc 241 AP fleet for today 31/5/2016
SBS3221K - 11:57am at Blk 962
SBS7539T (suspected SBS3644Z slot) - 11:57am at Blk 953
According to some information on certain website as I am trying to search on what actually happened to SMB1367X. As i asked around and got some hint that this particular registered plate is involvig with a aerious accident but there is no clue yet. So this bus is currently laying out at woodland bus park which is dued to next mid year 2017. THANK
For once, the WAB quota for 962 has failed
Had time to waste today to spot 302..
^ triple confirmed, sequence like this for 3 rounds, unsure whether 8019E was on S201 or AP08(have such slot? could hv seen wrongly the other time)
Spotting from 3.48pm in sequence:
8028D > 1108A > (4.00pm) 1211J > 8032R > 1117Z > 992U > 8012Z > 1219M > 8028D > 3163D > 1033G > 8019E
(4.44pm) 1108A > 8028D > 1211J > 8032R >1117Z > 992U > 1219M > 8020A > 3163D > (5.18pm) 1027A[302A] >1033G > 8012Z
* Bold denotes buses that didn't appear during AM off-Peak, likely split shift
991Y didn't appear during PM spotting, instead saw another bus (1027A) on 302A. Suspect 991Y was on AP01, and if i not wrong PM01 crossover to 302A
Service 43 (2.30 pm from Punggol):
SBS6498J (first bus)
SBS3440U (should be SBS3434M, but SBS3440U does this slot every day)
SBS3435K operates on split shift.
Sv 241 AP fleet today
SBS3014S - 12:17pm at Blk 953
SBS3064P (3810K slot)
SBS3221K should be a perm considering that it appeared on 241 on every day including weekends
AM Off-Peak sequence for 979 today:
SG1700U > SG1701S > SG1702P > SMB85R > SG1703L > SG1704J > SMB1465X > SMB1587C > SG1705G
* bold denotes cameo
Total 9 buses spotted during AM off peak (2pm - 3pm+) when theres only 7 AP slots, frequency was quite good actually (3 - 7min).. no DD running today
SBS7539T operating on shift 1A on 241 today
I'm not too sure how duty rostering works, for example
If assuming SBS7539T operates on 1A and arrives at 12:46pm at Bus Stop X (with NO T/S/E shift buses in operation at that timing), is it safe to assume that the next bus, SBS3221K operates on 2A, arriving at 12:56pm at the same bus stop?
Edit: It seems that today's sequence is different from what I observed previously, today's order for the first 3 buses are:
Date: 8 June 2016 (Wednesday)
Time: 12:30pm to 2:30pm
181: SBS9571K, SG5367Y, SBS3405Y, SBS7396M, SBS8991M.
243W: SBS3200X, SBS8768S, SBS3877T, SBS8945Y, SBS8064P, SBS3113P.
258: SBS3288T, SBS3659G, SG5349A, SBS3016L, SBS3722G.
Yes. You can assume so. This situation is similar to the order of buses in my area, where an A22 appears as usual after another A22 even without any shift buses
Date: 8 June 2016 (Wednesday)
Time: 3pm to 5pm
192: SBS3662X, SBS3647R, SBS21R, SBS3974X, SBS3670Y, SBS3276C, SBS3922X, SBS3198U, SBS3659G, SBS3432T, SBS3094K.

I am sorry. I do not know what "split bus" means, but according to the data I collected, SBS6717C was introduced from around 5:50 pm when the other buses on service 371 were performing their second evening peak period trip.
