The basic salary for Train Officer in SMRT ranges from $1,250 to $2,250. There are 3 grades for Train Officers. I joined in 1995. I have reached the maximum basic pay of $2,250. I will not have any more salary increment unless I am promoted to Crew Manager Train (CMT) which is a supervisor post. There are 2 grades for CMT. The maximum basic salary of CMT is $2,900. It is promotion season in my company. We prefer to promote our front line supervisor (CMT) from amongst the 400 odd Train Officers from 3 crew stations. If CMTs are well au fait with train operations, it makes the job easier. He is able to visualise the operational issues rather than recruit an outsider who need to learn from scratch the entire train SOPs.Read More »

Lui Tuck Yew Thanked the Public Transport Council
The Public Transport Council (PTC) has struck a good balance by keeping the bus and train fare increase a few notches below the average wage increase last year, said Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew today (Jan 16). He said the council managed to do so while enhancing concessions for a significant segment of commuters, such as students, especially the polytechnic students, and full-time National Servicemen (NSFs), and providing new products like the monthly unlimited travel passes for senior citizens and other adults.Read More »
The SMRT Secret
By being a shareholder of the SMRT, I was indirectly guilty of causing the discomfort and miseries of commuters everyday. I couldn't rebut his point because he was right and I agreed with him. But I offered the reason behind my decision. As a customer of the SMRT myself, I was subjected to unreasonable price hikes and I could not do a single thing about it. No one in the government seemed to be interested to stop these crap.Read More »
Transport Fares will be raised Tomorrow?

Even though it increased for some years, during the 2008 financial crisis, it was reduced. In the past year, there was no change in the fare." - Minister without Portfolio, Mr S Iswaran in aTamil programme in VasanthamRead More »
Public transport fare increases, and more fines. Tuck Yew, what the Tuck?
How about this suggestion, from one ex-Navy man to another? Tuck Yew, you can really Tuck up those errant public transport operators by BANNING FARE INCREASES, in lieu of fines. How's a six-month BAN ON FARE INCREASE sound? Not much, to irate commuters. But imagine the ban duration stacking up. Soon, it could be YEARS before they are allowed to increase fares. I'd imagine that to be way more effective than fines, which I assume would get passed on to commuters in the next fare hike.Read More »

Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew Ignores the poor and the disabled?
Mr Lui also said that the discount under the scheme for low-income workers would lower their fares to around the same levels as 10-15 years ago, depending on the journey. Meanwhile, the discount for those with disabilities will be “even more significant”. Hey what about retirees and those who never got pay rises?Read More »
