Written Reply by Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan to Parliamentary Question on Number of Train and Bus Trips Undertaken by Singapore Senior Citizens on Yearly Basis from 2015 by Age

03 Feb 2020 In Parliament

Mr Pritam Singh asked the Minister for Transport what are the respective numbers of train and bus trips that Singaporean senior citizens between the ages of 60-65, 65-70, 70-75, 75-80 and 80-90 undertake on a yearly basis from 2015.

Reply by Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan:

The table below shows the daily number of bus and train trips taken by Singapore residents on senior citizen concession cards from 2015 to 2019. We do not track the number of trips by the requested age groups as all residents above the age of 60 enjoy the same concessionary fares (of up to 55% off normal adult fares).

 Year  Daily Number of Bus and Train Trips taken by Singapore Residents on Senior Citizen Concession Cards

 2015  548,000 205,000 
 2016 597,000  238,000 
 2017 650,000  267,000 
 2018 690,000  296,000
