Reading about the Transport Ministry's latest public transportation proposal that earned brickbats from netizens gave me a sense of déjà vu. Minister Anthony Loke said that the ministry is looking at e-hailing for public transport (among several other transportation solutions): “At the moment we are looking to review our regulations to allow buses to pick up their passengers and send them to their destination instead of to the bus stop” ("Transport Ministry to consider e-hailing bus proposal", The Star, Oct 24).
I mean, that’s cool. I also suggested something similar in this column once. Almost.
