"SMRT plans fare hikes for bus, MRT, LRT
The transport company says it will apply for a fare adjustment by August 1; fares will rise by one or two cents, if approved."

expected.

an increment is not really significant, but it is an increase after all.

just 1c increase with a daily commuters of a few millions will be a cash winfall for the company.

Yap, small increment is not really significant to those working people. How about those old retired people or jobless people.

Maintenance cost increasing over the years, price review so as to provide better service and more comfort for the commuters.

It's a thrend ma, after election, quickly increase all the prices in the one year. After the next election in 5 years, nobody remembers it...ho-hum, vicious cycle of life.

Here's something to poke at, feel free to add::bsmilie:

1. Let's strive hard to be the man in white.
2. Good guys wear white.
3. The grass is whiter on the other side

Well, if by increasing 1 cent and i do not have to wait 4 mins during peak hours, and 10min during off peak, i would like to think that it is a pretty good trade off ;p

Our P@Ppy fathers always say ... it is better to have incremental increases year after year rather than a big big increase so that the bus/taxi/train companies can enjoy their profits sooner. Thrust them for their advice ... they have our intere$t at hearts.

"SMRT President and CEO Saw Phaik Hwa says that its proposed fare hike will not be sufficient to mitigate rising diesel costs.-CNA"

so the hike is justified? it's to help with the rising diesel costs!
