Singapore: Up to 1 million commuters may gain from fare review suggestions

Channel NewsAsia: "With the goal of keeping public transport fares affordable, the Fare Review Mechanism Committee (FRMC) has proposed two new concession schemes targeted at low-income workers and persons with disabilities.

It also recommended that the government funds these two schemes without imposing this as a financial burden on public transport operators.

The committee also proposed significant enhancements for existing schemes.

One is allow children below the age of seven to travel for free instead of using the current height criterion.

Another change proposed is a Monthly Travel Pass to be made available to adult commuters who frequently use public transport."
