Public transport operator SMRT will add 573 buses over the next two years, to renew and expand its fleet.
This is the largest number of new buses it has bought.
In a statement on Wednesday, the operator said the new buses will increase bus capacity and ease crowding on longer routes, as well "bring greater comfort to the commuter's bus journey experience".
It will progressively introduce 332 regular 12m buses, 40 bendy buses and 201 double-decker buses. The first batch of 30 buses will be delivered in June, and go on the roads from July.
