Thank you for attending TOC’s public transport forum

I would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who took time off your precious Saturday evening to attend our public transport forum at Speakers’ Corner today.

Thank you also to my fellow bloggers who helped publicize the event on your blogs.

There were over 100 people in attendance — one of the largest turnouts at Speakers’ Corner since it started. The event received good media coverage in all the print and broadcast media.

Even if you did not get a chance to speak, your attendance was a powerful message in itself to the government that Singaporeans are very concerned about the public transport fare hikes and service standards.

I hope to get a chance to meet more of you at our next event. :)

  1. Fare hike? OMG. Again? The public transport is making profit. How much profit is enough????

    Why do we have a transport council??? Or is it just a puppet watch dog planted by the government?

    Is fare hike = first class transport system???

    I recall that the transport council responded when asked for the basis for the hike … was that they have no reason..they admitted that there is no bench mark in the world to follow on profit making…and hence have fare hike or no fare hike…

    Just like our ministers pay. Singapore creates its special bench mark. Not with other countries’government which is natural thing to do… but instead with high paying lawyers.. the surgeons… bankers….

    Yes our society worships money as exemplified by the highest in the country

  2. You made various good points there. I did a search on the theme and found the majority of persons will agree with your blog.
