S’poreans react to news that public transport fares to fall by 1.9% in GE2015 year

Posted on 03 August 2015

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.


Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew said on Aug. 3, 2015, that bus and train fares will be reduced by up to 1.9 percent from December 2015. This is against the norm as prices are usually increased.

The reason for the lowering of fares was due to reduced fuel costs.

Minister Lui also said that every commuter group is expected to pay lower fares and the Public Transport Council will work out the specific reductions.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “This is the reason why we should have General Election every year.”
Ta Xuan, 40-year-old soya bean milk maker


sian-half-uncle “General Election will cause Singaporeans to run out of problems.”
Mei Wen Tee, 60-year-old wholesale fruit seller


happy-bird-girl “This just proves the Public Transport Council is useless because the Minister’s word is the be-all and end-all.”
Zuo Huang Di, 17-year-old jobless
