First of all, I'll like to thank those minorities within PAP who spoke up against the fare hike proposal and rationalising against it, such as Ms Denise Phua who talk about 'third alternative' in the form of hybrid systems. If there's a system which can work 'win-win' for both commuters and service providers, why not? And by the way, Mr Lui, I wonder why you're outdone by an MP without a ministerial portfolio.

    With Kind Regards
