Preview of Newsletter 3.4.3 不滿綠色專線小巴票價過高 Complaints against high fees for green minibus

綠色專線小巴14M於零八年申請加價時,本人認為適當加價合理,但應每半年依油價重新審視票價,故有條件同意小巴營運商加價。但油價在金融海嘯後回落,14M仍未有將票價減低;本人於是要求運輸署向小巴營運商反映市民不滿14M沒有檢討票價。

運輸署向本人解釋,因為要補償小巴營運商遲要求加價所做成的虧蝕,所以無空間下調票價。

運輸署沒有根據本人的條件重審票價是一個有違公道的處理;轉移視線的解釋亦不合理;故本人不會接受運輸署的解釋。

When the operators of the minibus 14M applied to raise its fee in 2008, I agreed to the raise with the condition that the fee be reviewed every half-a-year according to the oil prices. Yet after the oil price lowered under the Financial Crisis, 14M has not lowered its fee.  Hence I have consulted the Transport Department to reflect the residents’ dissatisfaction.

The Transport Department explained that the current level of minibus fee is to compensate the loss of the minibus operators when it applied the raise late last year. Hence there is no room for the operators to reduce the fee.

It is unfair that the Transport Department did not reviewed the minibus fee according to my endorsement conditions . Adding to that  its explanation for not reviewing the fee does not make any sense. Therefore I cannot accept the explanation of the Transport Department.
