The recent issue on the increase of bus fares based on distance could actually affect the poor. The increase would actually cost them opportunities to avoid travelling far in regards to job hunting. If bus fares are calculated based on the distance travelled , it would cost more for each of us out there taking the public transport. Furthermore, we have no slightest idea if feeder bus rides are also included in the distance based transport system.
In view of this, i would urge the public transport council to do something to stop sbs, smrt and also private bus companies to increase the public transport. Even part time university students would feel the pinch if their merge salary is being largely spent on transport and education.
