Dennis Trident 

Introduction

In 1998, SBS ordered 20 Trident chassis from Dennis, UK. However, the orders arrived late due to overwhelming demand from the Hong Kong bus companies, and together with the  the late arrival of Duple Metsec body kits, the assembly of the 20 Trident buses were delayed. These buses finally appeared on the roads in Singapore in August 2001, some three years after they were initially ordered.

All the 20 Tridents are based at Hougang Depot. Tridents were initially deployed on services 51, 64, 85, 111, 501 and 502 before having their deployment being reshuffled after second phase of the Northeast Line rationalisation exercise. Tridents can now be found on services 51, 62, 64, 80, 89 and 165.
