I am disappointed on that CASE had not made a response to SMRT plan to raise fares across all the public transport systems.
Recommended by gecko: "Will CASE respond to the coming transport hike?"
The likelyhood of CASE doing anything is as likely as... the PTC vetoing the planned fare hike. I'd rather concentrate on making the transport companies more accountable to their passengers in terms of service standards.
What is the job of CASE? They should be brave enough to voice the concerns of the commuters. CASE has no moral authority to call itself the Consumers Authority of Singapore.
CASE has no moral authority to call itself the Consumers Authority of Singapore. It's a Gone Case!
frankly transport companies must have a cap on profit/revenue. surplus profit must be returned back to the public as dividends/rebates as a "penalty" for having a natural monopoly/captive audience.
CASE: In response to the question by gecko; NO.
hahahaha....they might even say it's justified.
i really cant believe it mann.. they are increasing the price again???? look at their profits, all these just doesnt justify their action.
well, i think the best thing to do now, isnt to grumble and yak here. something easy and easier to gain attention of SBS. perhaps a petition? an online one.. anyone know any sites for petitions?
its just so unfair. all the increased gains go to the pockets of the rich shareholders, while us poor transit users dig and scrape to the bottom of our pans. just doesnt rationalize.
i wont wanna pay more, on top of my polytechnic bus and mrt fares mann. *refering also to the jc vs poly fare system.
Trackback from Born on Ninth of August - The bus fare increment, sorry I meant adjustment, is definitely justifiable :
Despite all oppositions, the transport companies’ request for bus fare adjustment is justifiable in all senses....
For those who wan to petition online as that is Singaporean only recourse. Here the link
Petition does not work in Singapore. Wait another 5 years, LOL
