    my daily mrt fare has increased after this wonderful thing.

    I'm very proud that i am paying 20 cents more per trip when i goes to work everyday.

    I want to pay more in fact, look at our ministers, they are so good, so hardworking, i hope i only can pay them more.

    Please make me pay $2 more... any rep from MRT here?

    but my job is not stable now... so i am sad i won't be able to pay $0.40 more everyday.. i am so sad...

    Now, the "increase" the bus fares, for some people.

    What next?
    Now is calculate fare by distance... next time will have one smart ass come out an idea of distance/time (the longer distance and time will result u in paying more)

    My fare decreased by 1 cent... was $1.95 but now $1.94... Took a bus to mrt and then take a train and transfer to another train. Traveling from North East to West area...

    I think most of the people here would face fare increase. SO what can I say? They are all liars!!!!

    so.. down 1ct for those who end up with lower fare..

    But up 10~20cts for those who end up with higher fares..

    So even "IF" there are indeed more pple with lower fares.

    Their revenue still increase by a large margin.

    You don't tap out on your way out of the bus. Sure you can pay more.

    Before: AMK -> Raffles Place $1.30
    After: AMK -> Raffles Place $1.33

    It is all fishy when they refuse to tell me what is the "fair" price during the roadshow, stating that price has not been finalised.
    There are a lot of people who travel JUST by MRT.
    How do they come with only 1 in 4 or only 1 in 3 will see increased price?
    Who is the person behind that estimation?

    From Bukit Panjang - Bugis by SMRT bus 960 before: $1.41
    Now: $1.49

    Of the many people I've spoken to, none of them had their bus/MRT fares decreased. How on earth they came up with this MISLEADING 'ONLY 3 in 1 WILL SEE A PRICE INCREASE'?

    I guess this change is just a way for them to increase the price of public transport, but they do not have the guts to say it's a price increase.

    No harm in trying. If one or two write in, then it'll probably be ignored but if MANY of us write in then they can't really that anymore right?

    Come on guys! Bombard the ST newsdesk with emails about this! Bloody ridiculous that a measure meant to lower costs is ending up increasing costs instead!

    How about a poll? Just indicate whether the new distance based fares increase or decrease your daily fares and by how much?

    Then they will tell you. "public" transport is a private entity so they have to answer to shareholders. Andl how singapore fares is cheaper then other developer countries, etc etc.

    And we can all go suck thumb again.

    precisely!!!! i will never ever believe they will do something to decrease the price.. NEVER!

    Remember the story: the old man give 10 fruits per day to the money. 1) 4 in morning, 3 in afternoon. or 2) 3 in morning, 4 in the afternoon...

    LPPL...

    decrease here, increase there... it is worse than the story, cos the mokey still gets 10 no matter what..

    wtf!
