PUBLIC bus operators SBS Transit and SMRT Buses have been fined a third time by the Public Transport Council (PTC) for not meeting service standards.
But this time, they received lighter fines after improving their performances.
SBS Transit, which runs 75 per cent of the bus services here, was fined $4,500 because some of its buses were overcrowded, while others did not arrive frequently enough. SMRT Buses was fined $100 for overcrowding on service 925.
