Those using cash on buses, or who purchase single-trip tickets for train rides, will see a steeper increase of 20 cents per trip.

This increase is based on the current fare adjustment formula, which came into effect last year and takes into account factors such as energy prices and inflation.

Speaking to reporters, PTC chairman Richard Magnus noted the costs of running public transport have increased, largely due to a worldwide rise in energy prices as well as manpower wages.

Both companies had applied for the 7 per cent increase, citing rising costs due to expenses such as maintenance and the introduction of new rail lines.

CONCESSIONS FOR DIPLOMA STUDENTS, VOUCHERS FOR LOW-INCOME HOUSEHOLDS

Meanwhile, full-time polytechnic and diploma students, who currently pay adult fares and number around 80,000, will now enjoy student concessions.

This represents five per cent and 10 per cent of their expected increase in fare revenues respectively, said PTC.

Households can apply for the vouchers - which can be used to purchase or top up fare cards, as well as buy monthly concession passes - at community centres and clubs (CCs) from Nov 11 this year to Oct 31 next year.
