    Default Distance based fares, increased or decreased fares for you?

    Has the new distance based fares increased or decreased your transport costs? Or perhaps no change?

    Much appreciated if you could indicate how much your costs have changed by, if any.

    New one as I forgot to include the "No change" option! Sorry about that!

    Ladies and Gentlemen, let's be fare on this and poll. Then we can show them how this round of fares adjustment really increase/decrease our daily bus/MRT fares. We can then show them if it's really 1-in-3 will get his/her fare increased.

    I cast the poll first. Mine INCREASED!

    Can you make this poll public, so that we know whose fares have increased, decreased or no change? This will give us a more transparent view on who has voted, and if their fares have increased/decreased/no change.

    If TS can't change this, can our mods help?

    I've merged and re-opened Virgo's thread, and added the "no change" option. For those who voted in Evilmerlin's old thread, please re-cast your vote, thanks.

    Hi ziploc, I can see that you have imported my poll (which has been closed due to duplication) which has a public option to review who has voted, into this poll.

    Good on you to exercise this creativeness!

    See, with creativeness, we all can change for the better for the general public, including lower our public transport fares!

    You're welcome. What I was trying to say is that if they are going to change to a distance based system, why do they have to make people pay more/less? With creativeness like you have, they can implement a system that is status quo, or even cheaper, and yet benefit everyone right?

    Transport services could not justify a direct fare hike, so some wise-guys came up with this bright idea of distance-related fare which in effect is a price increase. BTW my fare to and from work increased by 28 cents a day.

    So Mr. G Ee, what do you have to say about this?

    Certain routes doesn't have much alternative for public transport...

    For example:

    Bedok Central to Woodlands Central...

    Route 1: By bus cost S$1.82 (Bus 168 w/o transfer, 1hr 10mins)
    Route 2: By train cost S$1.82 (Transfer via Circle Line, 50mins)
    Route 3: Unknown cos I haven't found anyway that can shorten the journey by bus or mrt or both...

    But 1 thing for sure, price went up cos it used to be S$1.71 for full journey...

    I'm sure there's other route with similar situations...
