According to a Reach survey released on April 4, 2016, 80 percent of Singapore residents agreed that the country has a good public transport system, up from 74 percent last year.

Some 66 percent agreed that public transport in Singapore is generally affordable, up from 63 per cent last year.

In terms of bus wait time, 37 percent of those polled felt that the wait time has improved compared to a year ago, while 10 percent said it is longer.

As for bus crowdedness, 39 percent said it is less crowded now than a year ago, while 20 percent felt that it is more crowded.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “By next year, 120 percent will agree Singapore has a good public transport system.”
Yi Bai Fen, 43-year-old teacher

 

sian-half-uncle “There is always room for improvement when you ownself check ownself.”
Zuo Ba Shi, 63-year-old paper bag folder

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.”
