Penalty Fee Regulation
The objective of penalty fee regulation is to deter fare evasion on basic bus and train services. Fare evasion in public transport results in fare leakage. If fare leakage is left unchecked, it could eventually translate to additional pressure for fare adjustments.
Under the regime, any fare evader who is caught for the following fare evasion acts will be imposed with the following penalty fee
|Fare Evasion Acts||Penalty Fee|
|Non-Payment or Underpayment of correct fares||$ 20.00|
|Misuse of concession cards (child, student, NS-men, senior citizens)||$ 50.00|
Only appointed public transport officials (e.g. traffic/ticket inspectors, station masters) can lawfully enforce the penalty fee. They are required to carry and show their authorization card when performing enforcement work. Click here for more information on the penalty fee system.
