    First they increased number for COEs, so COE drop, people buy more cars.

    Then they increased ERP, but tell people COE is cheaper now.

    Then they reduce COEs, so COE price rush up again.

    COE expensive, people start taking public transport, then they do this... So if I transfer more I save more. What kind of BS is that? If I don't transfer it costs more.



    I think we are just like dumb sheep. They are just herding us from one direction to another.. and into the slaughter house at the end.

    there is suppose to be some kind of a dialogue when the parliament sits in next week.



    some MPs are going to raise this issue.

    somebody must have draft out everything, pass the questions to an MP who doesn't spoke out much (to increase his/her visibility) and the answers to Minister of Transport

    When I first heard that... I smell a coming pay increase for ministers again.. to compensate for the pay "cut" they took voluntarily a couple years back.

    But looking at the economy and the state of the job market now, salaries will not increase for the rest of us normal folk.

    Time to eat grass again.

    not sure why it mux b this inconvenient. not sure why other stations can't do the refund.

    perhaps the computer they use over at buona vista is a super computer that can crunch n munch numbers n of course, solve the oh-so-complex refund numbers for passengers.

    dun mind the distance fare thing, since it is unavoidable that transport fees will go up. of cos since it can only go up and it will never go down.

    but can someone please explain to mere layman like me, why are there different fare systems such as distance-time-fare, distance-fare and why are there such differences in fares even though the journey n distance covered is the same(like the case of melvin didi)?

    i m just so confused!

    "Will train fares go up as a result of the changes?

    Mrs Lim's answer is 'no', as fares are independently regulated by the Public Transport Council. "

    all your base, base base...base..base...repeat 100 times.


    As Singapore's train network expands, costs will be higher too.

    That's because with land at a premium, future lines will be mostly underground.

    And in areas where ridership is low, new lines may be harder to justify.

    So transport planners will need to look beyond the profitability of individual lines, for instance, by considering how a new line may relieve congestion in other parts of the rail network.

    quoted from the link , you know what this mean? no matter what, you going to pay more and more . all your money "Are" belong to us. hahaha. make your time.
