Bus And Train Fares Set For Highest Increase In Years

Bus And Train Fares Set For Highest Increase In Years

If this mooted fare increase gets approved, it will be the highest fare increase for years. If this happens, fares could go up by $0.10, the maximum increase that can be allowed under the current fare formula, a measure implemented from 2018 to the year 2022. While some might say that $0.10 is a small price to pay, if taken into account each trip a person makes he needs to cough up $0.10 extra, someone might face up to $15 total of increased fares per month.

This is the same Singapore football that has seen no gold medals ever in the SEA Games, where only South East Asian teams take part, or the same Singapore whose own professional league have been won by foreign invited teams in the past four years. Maybe his target should have been for Singapore football to win something first in the local leagues, or the regional Games. That already seems a hard task.
