Transport Minister says new bus contracting model can raise the level of competition
In a Facebook post, Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew says that the government contracting model will keep bus operators "on their toes", based on what he observed in London.
He says the new model can allow more bus operating companies, including foreign ones, to enter our market and raise the level of competition.
Mr Lui added that there may be transitional issues but inconvenience to commuters will be kept to a minimum.
He said the Land Transport Authority would ensure the welfare and interests of bus workers are well taken care of.
