Saw the bus today while I make a visit to Bedok Central......

21 January 2005

New bus services launched for Chinatown
By Wong Siew Ying, Channel NewsAsia

SINGAPORE: Making that trip to Chinatown this Lunar New Year will be a lot more convenient, especially for the senior citizens, with the launch of three new bus services on Friday.

The new bus services will ply through Ang Mo Kio, Bedok and Clementi before hitting the expressway to Chinatown.

The bus services come in auspicious numbers - CT 8, 18, 28 - and the buses have bright signs and even dialect-speaking captains.

Fares for senior citizens are priced at one dollar.

To celebrate the launch, SBS Transit is offering a "one-for-one bonus" till end of the month where commuters get a free return trip.

For senior citizens like 68-year-old Madam Yap, the new bus services will make travel easy for her.

She makes about three trips to Chinatown from her Clementi home every week via a feeder bus service and the MRT.

But thanks to the new direct bus services, her journey to Chinatown will be smoother now.

"No need to make any transfers, it takes us there directly, it's more convenient," she said.

Joint promotions with merchants will also allow commuters to redeem discounts or gifts when they shop at Chinatown.

Wong Chi Keong, chairman of Chinatown Business Association, said: "Our objective is to promote the business interest of Chinatown. We've been in discussion with SBS Transit for quite some time about how to make it more convenient for the customers to come to Chinatown, like where they should alight and how should the bus routes be."

Operating hours for the new bus services are from 10am to 5pm on weekdays, and 10am to 10pm on weekends and public holidays. - CNA

The total cost for EWL and NSL is only for the first stage right? Does it include that of Woodlands MRT Extension?

- North South Line & East West Line Basic Network Completed In 1990 (S$5 Billion)
- Woodlands Extension (S$1.4 Billion) *Conflicting figures ranging from S$1.2 Billion to S$1.4 Billion were given. The latter was chosen.
- Dover Station (S$55 Million)
- Changi Airport Extension (S$750 Million)

Business Times - 28 Jan 2005

SMRT Q3 profit up 25%

Higher revenue and lower costs and tax gave a 25 per cent boost to SMRT Corp's third quarter profits. The transport group on Friday said net profit in the three months ended Dec 31, 2004 rose to $23.9 million from $19.1 million a year ago. Earnings per share increased to 1.6 cents from 1.3 cents.

Revenue grew 1 per cent to $170.2 million as a result a larger hired-out taxi fleet, which offset lower fare revenue. Operating expenses declined 1 per cent due to lower depreciation charges and other operating expenses, which offset higher diesel costs.

Income tax expenses were 26.9 per cent lower as an asset-related grant was no longer subject to tax and the corporate tax rate was lower.

For the nine months ended Dec 31, 2004, SMRT's net profit rose 51 per cent to $72.5 million while revenue increased 1.3 per cent to $508.2 million.

SMRT shares closed unchanged on Friday at 95 cents. The stock has gained 8 per cent so far this year.
