SINGAPORE - Transport operator SBS Transit's billion-dollar programme to renew and expand its bus fleet is scheduled to be completed in three years' time, the publicly-listed company announced on Tuesday.

Said its chief executive, Gan Juay Kiat: "We have committed around $1.3 billion to purchase more than 3,000 buses since our fleet renewal programme began in 2006.

"By 2017, we would have replaced almost the entire fleet, and expanded the fleet by more than 36 per cent."

By then, almost its entire fleet will also be wheelchair-accessible.
