  • Affordable Fares

    One of PTC’s mandate is to safeguard public interest by keeping fares affordable. In 2013, the PTC adopted a fare review framework recommended by the Fare Review Mechanism Committee (FRMC). Under the framework, the maximum allowable fare adjustment quantum is based on a formula that is pegged to macro-economic factors.

  • Sustainable Public Transport

    As public bus and train services are provided on a commercial basis, PTC not only safeguards public interest by keeping fares affordable, but also helps to ensure the long-term financial viability of the public transport operators.
