There have been the usual government overtures that in general people pay less and the system is fairer under the new distance fares.
From the opposite camp, irate citizen bloggers claim that this isn’t true at all.
I find the official LTA fare calculator a pain to use, so if you’re interested in how much more (or less) you’re paying, go use Gothere’s mapping and directions tool. I use Gothere often to get directions, so the extra functionality is just groovy.
Thanks to this post on DK’s blog, from which I first came across this!
Hmmm. Gothere folks, if you’re reading this, perhaps with your data collected on searches done by Singaporeans you can probably do a good estimate on the question everybody is dying to know: Are Singaporeans paying more or less for transport under the new system?
If you send this in to the various local media, I’m certain they will love to know!
