You know, they change minds and prices like nobody's business, who'd believe? As long as their pockets are full and they're happy, our lives and hardships are nothing doing!

I think you should keep this article in a safe place...

lets see if they will increase... if they do, we can finally see how truthful they are...

but come to think of it.. they can always come up with a reason and say that they have no choice but to increase... back to sq one...

no need to keep, if u subscribe to Big O newsletter, they always have such information to go against the gov, like SPH earning big bucks, yet cut staff and increase news paper prices. Sing power huge profits, yet many poor fams don't have $ to pay have their power cut. etc etc....

even if they're 'false', there's little we can/dare do.

I do agree with di0nysus.No need to all the those information.They say what ever they like and giving such infor which they are having a loss profit in their company so they need to increase those bus and m.r.t fare.

Oh well, what do they know? They don't take the public transport day in day out like we do...only an occasional pre-arranged trip to show that 'Hey, We take public transport too!'

"SBS annd Mrt will not increase fares" heading is misleading.

There are two separate operators running our MRT(mass rapid transport) network. The report mentioned ComfortDelgro who operates North East lines, besides other mode of transport. It did not mentioned SMRT who operates North-South and East-West lines.

ComfortDelgro said they will not increase fares this year. But it did not say that it will absorb the full costs of additional security measures to be implemented soon which is deemed necessary by the authorities. Transport minister has said that commuters will have to bear part of the additional costs of security in our public transport network, amounting to 'not more than a few cents per trip'.

hangyong, as much as we personally may not like a person, what if it's your closest buddy's dad who's being called names on a forum? in this instance, Mr Lim is the dad of one of my secondary schoolmates, and we're not particularly close, but calling "suggestive terms" that we can practically imply from, is not a wise move.

like I have said, as long as you are not the one calling, not a very big prob. I will at most just tell the friend of mine what is happening, and I wun feel angry or what-so-ever of what others say of his dad. It has nothing to do with me anyway.

Anyway, he really is getting a fat cheque, and doing things not worthy of such high pay.

I am not saying what you said or did here is wrong though, just that the way I react and see it is different from yours.

if it's just willing to bear the responsiblity for a fat cheque, i hope to see a single soul willing to go for it in the first place. chances are, the responsibilities involved far outweighs the "fat cheque"

not more than a few cents? lets just say $0.05 per trip lah...

one day 2 million commuters (for bus + taxi + MRT, as seen in ads in MRT stations). lets divide it evenly between the 3. that means each day bus and MRT takes 1.3million commuters.

multiply that with $0.05, thats $66,666.67 per day! lets say every month, only 20days will have people taking bus and MRT, and all other days its empty, they take in $1.3million per month! multiply that by 12 months, and you get $16million in a year!

thats just by ADJUSTING the fare by $0.05.

many peopl will think that $0.05 is not alot lah... can lah... they not taking alot.. very fair....

well, I say do your maths right.

if you had to be answerable to a nation - the people, the families, not just including your own family and not just "only" 2000 people, you won't want to do it.

Alamak ... I start this thread is not for people to address other person F****** you dun likes or whatever vague names. :nono: I shoot most events on Mr Lim coz I known most of the pple there CCMC, CCC and RC etc.

Please respect him, even if you dun likes him but he is in a difficult shoes in such a difficult situation where economy and wages faced high cost in our country. Look at SIA, btw I am in PSA and also have my difficulty where reports on the newspaper reported. :(

What we hope is MRT and SBS will not increase fares this year but next year? :dunno:

So comment constructively, thanks. :sweat:

We are learning here ... towards a gracious society. ;) :) :lovegrin:

Hey guys, there are always many sides to a story and it is alright you take 1 side or many sides whichever ways you likes. No wrong or right answer but the decision made would probably be political right at this moment of time. Next time or few years down the roads may not be valid, the world is always changing ... so are we ... ;)
