If it happens, they will cramp people into a sardine can with buses at half an hour each standard to "justify" the "low" price...
i think they will just say noooooooooooooooooooo we cannot operate because of high costs. anyway price ceilings can be combined with minimum quantities. but i doubt it will happen.

will probably just cause low service and ah tiongs driving dangerously.

I think the current situation is damn jialat. even if you double the number of buses, you'll only cause more traffic jams. roads too crowded public transport also too crowded. that day I took mrt in the morning the next train was just behind queuing to come but both trains were full seriously wtf?

I bet the profit margins for sbs and smrt must be historically high right now. and they'll probably use it as a reason to justify record compensation to the managers for they awesome performance! PUI

I think the situation may improve after the circle line is complete... hopefully this is a temporary phase.

i think the mrt also got problem because the trains during peak come every 1-2min they are literally just behind each other. in anycase our system is fked in the short run. they better fix it by the next ge2016

I think GDP per capital will actually rise if we get rid of
some thiongs and bangla since they make up the bottom of the wages and depress our fugging wages

You willing to sacrifice doesn't mean the ministers are willing to sacrifice... They are not bothered anyways since they don't take public transport or work in private sector. But if you want to reduce GDP then it will bother them.
