STUDENT FORCED TO PAY ADULT FARE TWICE ON SAME BUS TRIP

Dear A.S.S. Editor

I was taking bus 12 from opposite Bugis junction towards Pasir Ris Central. My concessions expired and I have to pay cash.

Therefore I paid $1.80 and I board the bus. Approximately near Siglap, the bus captain come up to me and ask me to get off the bus because I only paid $1.80 and my trip ended there. Then I went down to pay another $1.80 to continue the journey back to Pasir Ris. But he insisted no, I have to pay another $2.40 because my first $1.80 does not count. In other words he expects me to pay total of $4.20 ($1.8+$2.4).

I found this very ridiculous because I told him I’m still a student and he raised his voice and said ” student so what? Student also pay adult fare”. Yes I know we are supposed to pay adult fare. But adult fare got $4.20 so expensive meh? I know it’s only $4.20 but hello? Who take bus w a $5 fare?

SBSTRAINSITLTD PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS MATTER. (SBS3461J. Bus service 12. 6 March 645pm)
