New Thomson-East Coast MRT Line To Run On Contracting Model

"Commuters will benefit from today's renewed emphasis on quality, but taxpayers may yet pay the cost for this," 

I dont know but when someone pays for a train ride, it should take them from Point A to Point B in the promised time and the promised manner. Why should someone pay more for what was initially promised? Yet somehow Singapore's Transport system keeps breaking down every so often,

Commuters stuck in trains also have complained online that they are unable to exit the trains for 1-2 hours or that the marshalls to direct human traffic to the free bus services have disappeared. 

The crux of the matter is commuters paid to get from Point A to Point B safely and in the time and manner that was promised and they are not getting it. 

Recently, the authorities asked the local Telcos to switch of telephone/data signals in certain sections of the line to try to identify faults with the train. It should never be guess work. 

Today it was announced that upcoming Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) will be the first to run a rail service under a contract similar to the model recently introduced for buses.

LTA said that the successful bidder will operate the new line for a fixed sum over a fixed period, while the Government collects fare revenue which is the similar model to the bus contracting model.

Only the existing rail operators SMRT Trains and SBS Transit, which LTA said are familiar with the local operating context will be invited to participate in the tender in the first quarter of next year. The same two operators that the commuters have complained about. . 

So how will commuters benefit? How will tax payers pay?
