    cant help but to wonder :

    now company say, you not happy to work here, we are not forcing you to stay.

    will there be a day when ........

    so sad, case just wah yang puppet. cant help at all. up there dont listen and cant understand, cause we have to pay 1st to prevent corruption.

    when ever there is a visit, as per publish in recent papers, the roots and company just get together to perform a wah yang show. look @ the news, every time they gets on public transport, does it looks anything like peak hour?

    now a $10 dollar refill can't last as long as it use to. Can't imagine if they continue to increase the price.

    If it's really the Air-conditioning & Plasma TV that costed the increase in the price, i rather them not doing so.

    how's the incremented amount going to be affecting us?

    is the incremented amount for each bus stop or the total trip?

    Here's what u can do:
    1) Walk more if u can reach your destination with 10 - 20 mins walk.
    2) Ride a bicycle.
    3) Hitch a ride (unfortunately it is more common in western countries)

    but the reasons for the increase is very lame.

    everything is going up...those not up...are 'delayed'....

    i guess it's better to work in gahmen sectors nowadays...
    privates find it hard to jack up their workers salaries...suspiciously.

    why i say that? previous guy before was paid 3k+, me doing the same things, im paid like...1/3 ? kaoz...didn't know that till i boarded the pirate ship.

    Price Increase (while your pay remains unchanged) = Decrease in Real Income = Pay Cut

    I just hope with all these commodities pricing going up, lens prices go down.

    Seriously, its not that bad. I've been to places where a can of coke costs me about 4 SGD. Just learn to save more.

    Well, isnt it the same? They just have a higher standards of living.

    I think living in Singapore is pretty ok. I've been to worst places on earth where even getting clean water is a big problem. You should be happy that they didnt raise the prices of fishes and eggs.

    Disappointing. Utterly disappointing. No wonder Singaporeans do not have a sense of belonging when their voices are not taken into consideration.

    Doubtful reasons that can barely be called "justified" being used to justify the fare increase. Ridiculous. With this fare increase I would expect--demand--a corresponding increase in service standard. This is only a fair right of a consumer.

    Maybe the CEOs of the two transport companies, the PTC and the Transport Minister should have their cars taken away and forced to take public transport as a gesture of supporting their own product.
