The person who made this started by adding more ERPs around central Singapore and alittle towards the northern areas.
Towards 2015, the whole lion city becomes an ERP-wide island.
There are ERP gates located at the doors of MRTs. How possible? Pay standard fare, and ERP fare if the MRT passes through anywhere? Double fare? Fair?
What? Pay ERP just to get home?
The quarrel with MRT drivers to stop before the next ERP. We’ll see.

But really. This might happen in time to come. You see, price to bid for a Certificate of Entitlement (COE) drops sometimes, inviting more people to get a car. However, ERP prices increases meanwhile. Isn’t it the same?
Above that, public transport fares are increased almost so often. At least fares increases often enough so businesses don’t have to absorb much costs. (REFER TO QUOTE BELOW)
What can we do? Take cab? Drive a car? Take a bus? Ride the MRT?
Malaysia (A little off topic)
Oil Price and Bus Fares
1. Every time the Government increase oil price, the bus companies would be told not to increase fares.
2. I do not like to see passengers having to pay more. But how do bus companies make profit or even survive if increases in cost are not compensated by increases in fare.
3. I can understand if the Government requests the bus companies not to increase fares too much. But there must be some increase.
4. Perhaps the Minister does not understand that businesses are not charitable organizations. If the Government cannot be charitable by absorbing the cost, why should businesses be asked to absorb the cost in order to make the Government look good.

End of story
Public transport fare hikes are fair, I think. When will the transport fares in Malaysia be increased? I’m waiting to see.
