Feature: EVA Air Hello Kitty Bus

Featuring SBS3887P, the fully decorated Hello Kitty double-decker bus

Taiwanese carrier EVA Airways launched a advertising campaign on SBS Transit buses to promote their new Hello Kitty themed airplanes for Singapore commercial flight routes, which were launched on 21 June 2015 on the Singapore – Taipei – North America route. Prior to this date, EVA Airways had been running other Hello Kitty themed airplanes on various other flight routes, including occasional landings in Singapore for chartered flights.

On 21 May 2015, EVA Airways released a sneak peak of their advertisement concept bus on their Facebook page. Photos of the featured bus, SBS3887P, a Volvo B9TL with Wright Eclipse Gemini II body, were released the day after.

SBS3887P – The Concept Bus

The windows, walls, ceilings and floor of this double-decker bus is adorned with Hello Kitty and Sanrio characters, and its colorful interior makes it hard to go unnoticed. The concept bus is permanently deployed on Service 14 under SBS Transit’s Bedok North Depot on a daily basis, and made its first stint with its full advertisement in late May. The bus has also appeared on bus services 154 and 196 as well.
