The MAN A22s registered under 3XXX are designated as Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP) buses. They are purchased and operated using government funding for a period of ten years from September 2012. These buses are introduced either progressively on overcrowded routes that require additional buses, or on entirely new routes planned by the Land Transport Authority.

Technical-wise, BSEP registered MAN A22s have the exact same configuration as the production units that were procured earlier by SMRT Buses.
* Batch One - SMB3001M to SMB3034T
* Batch Two - SMB3035R to SMB3116R
* Batch Three - None
* Batch Four - SMB3117M to SMB3163D

At point of introduction, the interior of BSEP buses have newly designed decals encouraging commuters to move towards the rear.

It is likely that a substantial portion of these BSEP buses, if not all, would be eventually transferred to rival operators and operated under the Government Contracting Model by mid-2016.
