SMRT plans fare hikes for its bus, MRT, LRT services

SMRT Corporation is planning to raise fares for its bus, MRT and LRT services.
It will apply for a fare adjustment by the August 1 deadline set by the Public Transport Council.

The SMRT Corporation says its total operating costs have ballooned by 20% this year because of the increase in diesel prices.

The fare hike will follow the PTC's formula of a maximum increase of 1.7%, which translates to a rise of one or two cents, if approved.

SMRT President and CEO Saw Phaik Hwa says that its proposed fare hike will not be sufficient to mitigate rising diesel costs.

It however supports the government's call for smaller and regular fare increases. - CNA/ir

2nd August 2006

SBS Transit and SMRT apply for bus, train fare hikes

It is confirmed. Both SBS Transit and SMRT have applied to the Public Transport Council to increase their bus and train fares.

The application came just hours before the deadline to do so expired at the end of Tuesday.

The proposals for the fare hikes, if accepted by the PTC, will be announced next month and will kick in by October.

This year, there has been a slight change in the dates.

The deadline to apply for adjustments was pushed back from May to August because the PTC said it needed time to implement changes to the Act, such as introducing new service standards.

Fuel costs have been rising for the two big bus companies, by as much as over 40 percent just in the last year.

SBS Transit says that diesel is its second biggest cost item after manpower.

So it has decided to ask for a fare increase after much deliberation.

With the formula imposing a 1.7 percent cap, SBS Transit says that most adults travelling on its buses and trains would see a one-cent to two-cent increase in fares.

If the maximum is approved, that will yield SBS Transit almost $10 million a year.

SMRT is also planning an increase averaging two cents, affecting mainly adult and senior citizen stored-value EZ-Link cards.

In many ways, the fare increase was widely expected.

When the new formula for calculating fare increases kicked in last year, the government said small and regular increases were preferred to big jumps every few years.

So, fare adjustments will probably be annual affairs now.

And both SBS Transit and SMRT have already hinted they would do so.

Both companies also say that they are mindful of the problems the fare increase would impose on the not so well off.

Hence student fares and concession passes will be unaffected.

Both companies will also have funding schemes for the lower income groups to offset any burden posed by fare increases.

But will commuters accept these arguments?

"They have the reason for raising their fares. Because of the oil.....they have to have a coverage. So I think it is ok," said a commuter.

"First, it was the oil price increase, and then the bus fares, and then the taxi fares. It all came so suddenly. It's not the amount, it's like all at once. It kind of adds up for us," said another.

"What will be, will be. But when fare increases, there will be upgrading of services and it's useful for upgrading," said a third commuter.

"Students, older people and the poor people would probably need more help," said a fourth.

The new head of the Government Parliamentary Committee for Transport, Cedric Foo, told Channel NewsAsia that the companies should also consider discounted rates for poor school children, off-peak rates for retirees and issuing a limited number of free passes for the unemployed who need to commute for job interviews. - CNA/ir

4th August 2006

ERP rates to go up at six gantries, mainly at CTE

SINGAPORE: Bad news for some motorists -- especially for those who drive on the already congested Central Expressway.

ERP rates are set to go up by 50 cents on the CTE north and south of Braddell Road, on the northbound CTE after the Pan-Island Expressway, as well as the PIE slip road into CTE.

Rates will also go up on the PIE at Kallang Bahru as well as East Coast Parkway at Fort Road.

The increased rates are for different blocks of the morning peak period and will kick in from Monday.

The increase comes after the Land Transport Authority's quarterly review of traffic conditions and is being imposed to maintain LTA's aim of an optimal speed range of 45 to 65 kilometres on expressways.

The next quarterly review will take place in November. - CNA /dt

Mabok Tongue, 自己打自己嘴巴。该死。

Well done, Chiam.

Chiam replies to Mah's comment
      
I REFER to the report, 'No more passing the buck' (ST, Aug 14), on the solar-lights saga.

National Development Minister Mah Bow Tan said that I have finally decided 'to concentrate on serving the needs of the residents'.

Mr Mah has again got the facts all wrong. I have never changed my position on serving the residents, as he claimed.

It was he who practised the opposite in regard to serving the residents of Potong Pasir.

Mr Mah was in charge of transport during the period leading up to the 2001 General Election, yet he never supported the opening of the Potong Pasir MRT station, despite my repeated requests as MP for Potong Pasir.

It was Mr Yeo Cheow Tong, the then newly-appointed Minister for Transport, who, in June 2003, finally gave permission for the Potong Pasir MRT station to be opened.

4th September 2006

Recruitment must be top priority for Young PAP: Balakrishnan

The Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports has urged Young PAP (YP) members to think of ways to attract younger people such as students in junior colleges and polytechnics to be involved in their activities.

Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, who is also YP's Chairman, said that these students are more politically aware.



But YP members must have the right approach or the students will turn away, he said.

He added that while the Young PAP is doing well, recruitment must be at the top of their agenda.

This is to ensure continual rejuvenation for the party so that the Young PAP and PAP will not be seen as "old" and "stale".

Members, he said, must make sure that there are always young people who will come in with ideals and energy as well as to express themselves.

They must also stress to potential members that it is all right to have differing views from the PAP, as long as they are honest in trying to make the change.

Dr Balakrishnan said that he too had different ideas when he was younger and if the PAP had not made it known that they welcome those like him, he would not be where he is now.

Dr Balakrishnan was speaking at the YP district elections at the PAP headquarters on Saturday.

About 170 YP members turned up at the event to vote for the 5 district chairmen and their 5 co-chairs.

For the first time since the YP held its first district elections in 2004, 3 women members were nominated for the posts.

One was eventually chosen as the Vice-Chairman of Southeast District. - CNA/ir
