Will there be Public Transport Vouchers (PTVs) disbursed alongside the 2023 Fare Review Exercise (FRE)?
The Government remains committed to provide support for households that may require assistance in coping with the fare adjustment. Therefore, the Government will utilise the Public Transport Fund to make available PTVs worth $50 each to resident households with a monthly household income per person of not more than $1,600. This matches the highest quantum of PTVs that we have given. This will help to cushion the impact of the fare increase on lower-income households.
Commuters who require more help to cope with the fare adjustment may approach their Community Centres/Clubs for assistance, and SimplyGo Ticket Offices/Ticketing Service Centres for information on the various concession schemes available.
