Can they clarify if the buses are free for the bus companies? I want to buy SMRT and Comfort delgro stocks if that is the case.

You think the bus ride free ah?

Buy plane for SIA or buy ships for NOL next.

All these basic infrastructure like bus and train transport should be nationalised la. Afterall we already going that route mah. Market competition best for us wor.............. my foot.

So govt finally step in to solve the overcrowding of FTs/FWs in s'pore is to buy more bus to ease the overcrowding?! Does this mean bus company would not increase bus fare, since they dont need to spend more money to buy bus?

Next budget, will govt buy taxis or trains? biggrin.gif

If the bus companies buy the new buses....they got not enough bus interchanges parking lot!!
So still must involve gov to give more land.
Also bus companies may increase the fares to cover the costs.

So no the gov offered to pay n buy for them. The fares will stay low.

This is a good gov.
I like.

SBS & SMRT are privatised & runs a profit based service with record profits yearly...why are we using tax payer's money to fund their profits? they get $$ from taxpayers & then increase fares to further suck the cents out of the commuters. good business model man!sure win.

Buy more buses is OK, it will benefit the public. So its OK to use taxpayers money.

But I wonder can our roads take in the extra 800 vehicles? Are we able to hire 800 new bus captains?
