Scania N113CRB

Introduction

In 1989, 200 new Scania N113CRB buses were introduced into SBS' fleet. 50 of the buses are fitted with Fuji air-con units while the rest are non air-conditioned. These buses are also touted to be the quietest bus to grace Singapore's roads at that time with a noise emission of some 10dB less than other types.

In 2000, SBS started to refurbish the Scanias. 86 of the non-aircon Scanias were converted to air-con buses, while all the original air-con Scanias were retrofitted with new seat covers and air-con ducts. In particular, SBS79A also had a new Carrier-Sutrak air-con fitted in 2003 behind  the old Fuji air-con as a replacement.

Currently, all Scanias are based in Bedok North and Braddell / Ang Mo Kio depots. After the second phase of Northeast Line rationalisation exercise, quite a number of  Scanias were transferred from Bedok North to Braddell / Ang Mo Kio depot, and were subsequently deployed on services such as 70, 82 and 101.
