Fare review: Committee will look closely at users who fall between the cracks
The Fare Review Mechanism Committee assured public transport commuters on Monday that it would look closely into segments of users who fall between the cracks.
These include average-income households where measures such as a monthly adult pass to cap monthly expenses are being looked into.
Committee chairman Richard Magnus, a former senior district judge, wrote in a blogpost on Monday that these average-income earners "would not show up as a possible group that might need help", going by statistics.
He added that they may spend 3 to 4 percent of their household income on transport fares and as such should find them quite affordable.
