Singapore bus operator turns up the heat with Volvo double-decker order08 July 2014

Singapore bus operator SBS Transit has placed an order for 415 Volvo double-deck buses, bringing the total number of Volvo vehicles ordered by the operator to 1,415 in the past five years.

The latest order is for double-deckers built on the Volvo B9TL chassis. The chassis will be produced in Borås, Sweden, while the aluminium bodywork will be made by Wrightbus and mounted in Singapore.

SBS Transit has specified the buses with Euro 5 Volvo D9 engines.

"We are always looking for buses that are not only operationally efficient and environmentally friendly, but are also comfortable for our commuters," says Gan Juay Kiat, SBS Transit's CEO.

Deliveries will commence in July 2015 and be completed by mid-2017.
