新加坡巴士 Buses Of Singapore

新加坡,一個位處亞洲的熱帶城巿,從香港出發,只需三個多小時的機程。新加坡主要由主島新加坡島及周邊五十多個小島組成,長年均是夏天,而且濕度非常高,跟香港的亞熱帶及擁有春夏秋冬四季氣候截然不同。另外,縱然現在新加坡基本上已經城巿化,但綠化面積十分廣闊,不但起著美化城巿作用,更有助舒緩炎熱天氣帶來的悶熱感覺。

新加坡陸上交通主要是由地鐵,輕鐵,的士及巴士組成,巴士及鐵路主要由兩間公司─新捷運及SMRT營運。而只要有一張Ezlink卡,乘客就可以乘搭不同巴士及鐵路路線,以及享有轉乘優惠。

新捷運前身為新加坡巴士(1978)有限公司,是當地最大巴士服務營運商,成立於一九七三年,為反映出經營多元化業務特質,於二零零一年十一月改名為新捷運。截至二零一二年一月底,新捷運擁有三千多架巴士及經營二百六十多條巴士線。新捷運車隊主要由單層巴士組成,從早年的平治O405,富豪B10M,到今天的Scania K230UB,反映出新捷運與時並進及不斷提高服務質素的努力。而雙層巴士方面,今天以十二米的Super Bus為主力,打從一九九三年首架利蘭奧林比安空調巴士,以至之後富豪奧林比安,超級奧林比安,B9及丹尼士三叉戟,都構成了這個熱帶城巿特色一部份。至於餘下不足一百輛的富豪奧林比安兩軸非空調巴士,是最後一款引進的非空調巴士,亦是目前車隊中唯一非空調巴士款式,並計劃於兩年內全面淘汰。

至於另一間主要巴士服務公司,SMRT,對比新捷運則規模較小,截至二零一二年一月底,擁有一千一百三十八架巴士及營運九十八條路線。SMRT前身是八達巴士(Trans Island Bus Services,TIBS),於一九九九年,TIBS與營運地鐵的SMRT合併,隨著合併工作於二零零四年完成,TIBS正式改名作SMRT。跟新捷運不同的是,SMRT車隊全是單層巴士,計有丹尼士長矛,日野,Scania L113CRL,日產柴油,平治O405,OC500LE及最新的Citaro (O530)。雖然車隊中沒有任何雙層巴士,但SMRT卻擁有可觀數目的掛接巴士平治O405G,亦成為了新加坡這個花園城巿其中一個特色。

而新加坡著名景點,聖淘沙島內亦設有不同的穿梭巴士路線,車款主要是富豪B7RLE,而連接沙灘的專車則由改裝的富豪B12B掛接巴士行走。

Singapore is a tropical City and just around 3 hours flight from Hong Kong. Singapore is composed of the Singapore main island and other 50 islands surrounded. The weather of Singapore is hot and humid all year, a great difference with the distinct weather change in Hong Kong. Though Singapore is already urbanization, there are many green areas within Singapore to decorate the city and relief the muggy weather.

The public transport system of Singapore is mainly composed of the Mass Railway Transit(MRT), Light Rail Transit, maxicab and public bus. Public Bus and MRT provided by SBS transit and SMRT. You can travel on different MRT and bus routes with Ezlink card and can enjoy fare discount when interchange with different bus routes and rail lines.

SBS Transit is the largest bus operator in Singapore. Before Oct., 2001, SBS Transit was known as Singapore Bus Service (1978) Ltd and established in 1973. By the end of Jan., 2012, SBS Transit operated a fleet of more than 3000 buses with more than 265 routes in Singapore. The fleet of SBS Transit mainly consisted of single decker buses. SBS Transit fleet advancing rapidly and this can be reflected by the change of their bus fleet. The Mercedes Benz O405 and Volvo B10M introduced in 90s and nowadays, the Scania K230UB. SBS Transit is also the sole operator of operating double decker, the Super Bus, like the Leyland and Volvo Olympian 12m A/C, Volvo Super Olympian, Volvo B9 and Dennis Trident. At present, the only conventional bus model in the fleet is Volvo Olympian 2-axle buses, the last non air-conditioned bus model introduced, would be retired within the next two years.

SMRT is the another bus operator in Singapore. SMRT operated 1,138 buses with 98 routes by the end of Jan., 2012. SMRT was previously known as Trans Island Bus Services. TIBS was merged into SMRT, the MRT operator in Singapore, in 1999 and TIBS was changed the name to SMRT as the amalgamation was completed in 2004. There is no double decker buses in SMRT fleet. Though without double decker, there is a wide variety of the bus models in the fleet, included Dennis Lance, Hino, Scania L113CRL, Nissan Diesel, Mercedes Benz OC500LE, both O405 rigid and the articulated model O405G, Citaro (O530).
