Home / SMRT Buses, Singapore (before GCM/BCM) / Mercedes-Benz O405G (Hispano Mk I) / TIB890E 19

TIB890E was the only bendy bus to be fitted with Vogelsitze seats with head-rests. The only other TIBS bus which had this feature was TIB905Y, but it was limited to two seats and was subsequently removed. These seats with head-rests have survived refurbishment by SMRT Buses in 2011 and were fitted with new seat covers.

This bus was also used as part of the "Super Rider" ticketing trials, which was eventually rolled out to the entire public transportation system as the "Ez-Link" contactless smart card.
