Here is Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew's full Facebook post:

I am encouraged that many Singaporeans are supportive of the Fare Review Mechanism Committee (FRMC)’s recommendations, particularly those on fare concessions.

In the coming Parliamentary Sitting on 11 November, several MPs have filed questions related to public transport affordability, to which I will be replying. I will take the opportunity to also respond to the FRMC’s recommendations.

Other questions on people’s mind now will probably be when the fare concessions will be implemented, whether and when there will be a fare increase, what will happen to the 2012 fare review which was suspended pending the FRMC report, and so on. I will also speak on these issues during the November Parliamentary Sitting.
