They need to support the plasma TVs in the train stations, maintenance of the toilets @ SMRT interchanges, the aircon for TPY's interchange, the leaking roofs for some buses and also the big LCD screens for train wardens inside the control station.

All these are $$

but the arguement is that we don't really need all those fancy stuff. Only those whiny citizens who complain bout little bit thing like 'why no aircon'....
most of us dun really appreciate the things they do...coz it's like not neccessary.

You don't bake a cake, u think it's nice, and try to force people to buy them.
Not willing to buy, but you force them, they pay unwillingly. End up they not happy with you behind your back. It's typical...don't u think?

LoL
:sweatsm:

while china progress from a country of iron horse to world class transport. we go backward to using iron horse cause the $$ loading is breaking our back. FOC, at least for now no bicycle coe, no season & hr parking fee, no bicycle rd tax, insurance.

In the end, we really need to ask ourselve, do we want so high std of living?

Plasma tv is high end tv where by we as consumer can opt not to buy, but they now use it as a high end sign board, force us to pay for it, while collecting $$ from company putting advertisment up there. Best buisness in the world man, collecting money from both ends.

Before you know it, they are going to force all cyclists to install ERP reader on your bicycles!

But fankly, if reasons for the bus fare increase is to be justified by high operational cost due to aircon interchanges, more mobile TVs etc, then it's
.

Just think, 1 plasma tv cost $3k (they buy in bulk mah). 1 mrt station install 4, mrt interchange 6, bus interchange 2.

LCD TV cost $500, 2/mrt cabin, 2/bus

How much just to buy all these, installation & maintainence not included.

shouldn't have 'privatised' the transport sector from the start, no competition, no increase in efficiency ...
