Home / SBS Transit, Singapore (before GCM/BCM) / Scania K310UD (Gemilang) 27

While Scania K-series single decker buses are plenty in SBS Transit, the company operates only a single double deck demonstrator, SBS7888K. The K310UD demonstrator was delivered to the operator in March 2010 and was the first bodywork developed by Gemilang for a double deck city bus using Alcan's EcoRange aluminum-based technology.

The unit was powered by the Scania DC9 18 310 Euro IV engine (8,867cc), and fitted with 6-speed ZF Ecomat 6HP604CN automatic transmission. Its Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) technology does away the need for additives in exhaust treatment. The EDS unit was from Hanover Displays, air-conditioning from Eberspächer Sütrak of the R488 type and its interior design similar to its single deck counterparts.

In 2011, SBS7888K was briefly showcased with a special livery at Bangkok to celebrate Scania's 100th anniversary. It returned to Singapore for continued service after the event. As the Government Contracting Model came into effect from late 2016, SBS Transit owned demonstrator buses including this one were reassigned as training buses.
