Notes[edit]

  • All buses went for refurbishment & have been repainted to Land Transport Authority (LTA)'s Lush Green livery.

SMRT Buses[edit]

  • SMB1H is the demonstrator. The exterior of this bus was prematurely refurbished due to unforeseen circumstances. It is the only unit to feature blue tinted windows & smaller side & rear EDS.
  • SMB4A does not have the Trapeze CFMS unit installed.
  • SMB12B previously had its windscreen wiper area painted over in white (similar to SMB30Z's previous SMRT Buses' new livery paint scheme) but has ever since been painted into Lush Green Livery.
  • SMB13Z does not have operator logo pasted on offside of bus.
  • SMB16R
    • features a smaller Mercedes-Benz badge at the front bumper.
    • features the Hispano Habit door closing chime instead of the usual SMRT chime.
  • SMB30Z was previously repainted in SMRT Buses' new livery.

Tower Transit[edit]

  • SMB33R & SMB61J are equipped with newer generation instrument cluster.
