Fare hike to improve services, says transport ministerTransport Minister Lui Tuck Yew has sad that a fare hike is needed to improve service to commuters in the country.

Mr. Lui said that the fare hike is not aimed at increasing profits of Public Transport Operators (PTOs) or to improve salaries of the bus drivers working on the transport network. He said that the government is required to ensure that if any hike in fares is allowed, the operators must be made to invest a part of the increased earnings on improving facilities for the commuters.
