Go-Ahead Singapore takes over responsibility for Loyang Bus Depot

Go-Ahead Singapore today announced that it has formally taken over responsibility for the Loyang Bus Depot from the Land Transport Authority. This is the first milestone in the lead up towards Go-Ahead Singapore’s commencement of public bus services in Singapore in September 2016, following its receipt of the 25-route Loyang bus package contract last month.

The newly built depot can accommodate up to 500 buses and is fully equipped with modern maintenance facilities such as automatic refuelling and washing systems, a 10-bay workshop, a 'rolling road' for testing brakes, and a spray painting booth. A contemporary office with extensive rooms, a canteen, as well as rest areas have been provided for the comfort of all employees, and Go-Ahead Singapore will complete the fit out with a training hub.

Go-Ahead Singapore transition director Nigel Wood commented, “The large, well-located depot is ideal for our bus services from Pasir Ris, Punggol, as well as Changi, to other locations such as Tampines, Bedok, and Sengkang. We plan to enhance it further with interior refurbishments to create an excellent working environment for our employees, and to equip it to also house a recruitment and training centre."
