If we all filled the government forums with complains about this price increase, and then jam their website like what we did for this thread, then we can see if they really listen! I don't think their website is better than CS and can take such traffic...
I do not think all votes goes to the government during the election?? The opposition got a fair share of the votes as well except they did not make it all the way. We have opposition as MP and NMP as well. So, they do not have responsibilities to speak out?
Is there any logic that they are not the government and thus we do not expect them to voice out until the next election rally? If this is the case, my votes will goes to the government who support the increase in fare now.
And your logic is you support the present government just because they say that they support the increase?? I cannot understand your logic......

I guess most of us just wanted to have a voice to speak out on such issues even though we know the price increase will still take place....for sure!
BTW, I mentioned the votes for the government for the price increase........take it easy... I am just trying to pull off some jokes on the white and opposition here.
just curious... were there fare reductions during the bad times... when the economic growth is going south?
what if there's an energy crisis (like another gulf war) and due to this, operating costs affect companies from all sectors. and due to high operating costs, companies tend to cut back on salary cost and jobless rate increases?
can the transport providers still use the rising energy cost as a reason for fare increase? if they can, then it is not in-line with the economic growth right?
What is the point of arguing? We know we can't do anything; Just follow what's being handed down.
That's how foreigners see Singaporeans, a group that just follow instructions! Couldn't think outside of the box, do things according to rules & regulations but will be fully confused if there is no rule to limit his creativity; can't make U-turn if there is no sign post!
That is the environment we are brought up in; IN A BOX! It's different culture & mindset. It's uniquely Singapore.
