actually, from the bus driver perspective, they prefer Mercedes,
so it’s definitely Mercedes Benz Citaro. because the Mercedes
engine more reliable ma; won’t so easily spoil. although Mercedes
vehicle more expensive, but there’s less maintenance required. so,
I think in terms of long term expenditure, Mercedes Benz Citaro is
better because it’s cheaper.
actually, I have been following this forum for quite a while,
since around 2009, so I know roughly why. From what’s written here
last time, some ppl say that it’s because the Scania
K230UB not nice, that’s why SBS regret
buying, and dun wanna buy anymore of them.
or… is the reason the same as what I wrote in the first
paragraph, about Mercedes engine being more reliable?
Who says mercedes benz citaro is cheaper?? Mercedes Benz itself
is already a premium and superior good and utilises exclusive
distribution in Singapore by Cycle and carriage, and i am sure that
their buses do not come cheap as well otherwise everywhere in the
world are already using their buses already ad not volvo or
Imo the scania kubs are cheaper.. and SBS Transit does get
discounts for bulk purchases, that's why they bought 1,001 Scania
KUBs at once. Of course imo MAN A22 is the best in terms of pickup
speed and comfortability. Scania KUBs for legroom.
