Mr Gerald Giam Yean Song asked the Minister for Transport (a) whether the Ministry has data on the total number of buses operated or maintained by public transport operators; (b) of these, how many are currently stored at bus depots; (c) what is the average age of these buses that are stored at bus depots; and (d) why are these buses not being deployed for bus operations.
Mr S Iswaran: As of May 2022, we have around 5,800 public buses with an average fleet age of eight years. About 3% of them are kept at the depots to serve as an operational reserve.
