Singaporeans have to think critically

Singaporeans have to think critically before expressing their opinion.

When I suggested that the network of bus services is too many and should be streamlined. the majority oppose it because they find a big network to be more convenient. 

The took the view after I have explained that a big network is more inefficiently and cost more to operate. There is a lower utilisation and many buses run more than half empty during the off peak period.

When I told them i a survey to choose between a big network which requires higher lower public transport fares and lower fares from from a streamlined network, the majority choose a streamlined network.

Surely they must know that a bigger network will lead to higher public transport fares? Surely they can see most of the the buses are more than half empty during the off peak periods?

If they think critically, they will know the obvious consequences and can express their views more credibly.

We need our people to be able to think critically, so that our country can have a better future.
