SBS8009A on Service 42


The Dennis Dart is a rear-engined single-decker bus manufactured by Dennis (later Alexander Dennis) in Guildford, England. More than 11,000 were produced during 18 years of production.

Most were purchased by United Kingdom operators, although examples were sold to America, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Singapore Bus Services/SBS Transit

SBS Transit operated 10 Dennis Dart buses between 1994 and 2011. They were the only 9.4 meter long buses to be operated by SBS Transit.

In 1994, SBS purchased 10 Dennis Dart buses. All of them were bodied by Duple Metsec, and were meant for services M1 and M2 (now 92 and 42 respectively).

All of these buses were retired by 2011 at the end of their lifespan. Regular 12 meter buses replaced these buses on both routes.
