Since Singapore so small, what if the following situation happens?
Whoever work near where, stay near where. Then they cycle to work place daily and therefore, all public transport got no business. If not cycle, they drive (car pool better still) to work as nearby, save a lot of petrol etc...
This way, we not saving ourself on spending on public transport but we also save the earth. Not a bad idea but it wouldn't be coming true unless we willing to do so. We just have to let them raise the price every now and then and we keep complaining.
Only Sony device mostly, haha!

You are member of public, you complain without solutions, you are a whiner
You are member of public, you complain and give solutions, you are told, your solutions are stupid.
You are opposition member, you question the ruling party's decisions, you are called a trouble maker
You are opposition member, you DONT question the ruling party's decision, you are called a no brainer
You question fellow members if they are party members are they seem fanatic in their defense and you are told "you are attacking the individual"
Finally you talk somemore and Mod tells you all.. "okay thread locked and closed"
I would say our govt must know best for us, and we must accept the reasons if we dont have solutions lest we become any of the above catergories of people. Next election, I am sure we will be smart and we will once again vote for our beloved party and their leaders and look forward to more increases in taxes, fees, cost of living. Also we must trust that our poor will be able to get enough to get by. The recent arguement that the poor cannot be given an extra few dollars saying that it will erode their work ethics is the right one. You see now we dont have to walk to buy tissue. All the disabled and poor are doing their job peddling tissue paper from table to table on crutches and entertaining us with song and dance at almost every MRT.
Nice, selective quoting and selective rebuttals - I'll assume that points not rebutted are admitted.
Now on to those you have selectively rebutted:
We are not talking about a subsidy across the board, we are wondering why profits need to keep increasing. When there is a profit, that means there is no subsidy.
Again, I ask, why can't a billionaire who has money to spend on cameras and everything, gripe about an obviously unfair position or profiteering, by a company, whose services he doesn't intend to use?

Because the Government set the pace for everyone. Since the Govt increase price, everyone starts following suit.
First the Govt, then the GLCs then the Big Companies, then the Small Comapanies.
Also, it could be a relay race thing - wait for GST hike, then bring in new topics to discuss, and hope people forget old topics (Like GST hike).
Can upgrade camera, cannot pay just 20-30% more for transport meh ???
Some of us don't have much disposable income and need to really save and scrap to buy our
equipment, which is something some ppl need to undstd
Dun always give reason that got money can buy these and that, price hike
complain so much.
Haiz...tink abt those singaporeans fallen behind and are still struggling to cope with the
Companies always using rising oil prices as excuses to raise fare. Seriously, you really think
they never factor in the unpredictable oil prices to maintain a healthy profit meh ?
Dun give any stupid reason and force singaporeans to LPPL and swallow down the throat.
Look at our jam our buses and MRT during peak hour, still want to aim for 6.5million ?
Bullocks ! Ridiculous to see MIW support any policies that came out from the mouth of
another elite just to conform to the group..
Worse of all, most singaporeans are afraid to voice out their unhappiness to avoid being
labelled as the non-conforming population and incur the wrath of

we've been through this for the past few years. there they increase price, here we voice our displeasures. no matter how many forums these displeasures are being voiced out, they still fall on deaf ears. what a shame...
i think it's bad enough that citizens of spore are going through this. but what about non-citizens? they are the worst hit. they do not get any rebates from the govt and yet, are still subjected to the same price increase.
Lots of people like to complain for the sake of complaining.
I bet that if the transport companies were in the red and ask to increase the prices, people will also complain eg. why is management paid so much? why is the company run so inefficiently? why doesn'tthe company cut the unprofitable routes?why doesthe company cut the unprofitable routes?
