This report on rail fares brings together in one single document fares currently charged for travel on rail (Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), subway and Light Rail Transit (LRT)) systems in major cities around the world. Such a document is useful resource when forming a perspective on the fares charged for travel on the Singapore Rail system, in comparison with fares charged in other major cities around the world.
It is an exploratory study that seeks to provide a preliminary benchmark between Singapore’s rail fares with comparable cities around the world, and is in no way an exhaustive and definitive comparison of the different rail fare structures.
This inaugural Advisory Report carries the i) findings from PTC’s commuter engagement and stakeholder consultation and ii) recommendations made to the Minister for Transport on public transport improvements. The recommendations developed from the findings relate largely to commuters’ personal experiences on public transport, such as the day-to-day challenges they face; and are reflected under four main themes covering: improvements for seniors, wheelchair users and families with young children; better information provision; more commuter-centric design, and a deeper sense of community on public transport.
This report sets out the findings and recommendations of the Fare Review Mechanism Committee set up in 2012 to review fare concessions, the fare adjustment formula and fare mechanism to ensure that fares remain affordable for the various commuter groups, while safeguarding the long-term financial sustainability of the public transport system.
