The PTC has also decided to freeze senior citizen fares and the prices of existing travel concession passes, noting that the Government has decided to do likewise for the two Government-funded schemes for Lower-Wage Workers and Persons with Disabilities.

In total, more than 1.1 million commuters will see their fares unchanged.

From 5 April 2015, adult card fares for buses and trains will increase by 2 to 5 cents while student concessionary fares will increase by 1 cent. The prices of all monthly concession passes for adults, national servicemen, senior citizens and students will remain the same.

Cash fares for adult bus and train rides will increase by 10 cents, while senior citizen and student cash fares will remain unchanged. Commuters are strongly encouraged to use contactless smart cards, instead of paying cash fares, to enjoy lower fares for travel on public transport.

The Government will also be introducing new off- peak travel passes for adults, Persons with Disabilities and senior citizens. These monthly passes will allow commuters who travel frequently during off-peak periods to save on their travel expenditures.
