Just wanna ask why dont ppl boycott some of the transporter? Imo those transporter that increase the price because the oil was increase to RM2.70 per liter should reduce their price now. I heard the actual price was RM100 per trip to school(one way).and then when the oil was RM2.70 per liter they increase RM20.00. Thats exactly 20%. Since now the oil price is RM2.00 per liter they should revise their price too.

Since my neighbour and workmate complains to me i ask them to ask the transporter but they all dont dare. WHY? if everyone boycott this type of ppl then they will learn their lesson..anyway this just my opinion.

Just be sure to hv a backup plan when u make any complaints, in case something goes terribly wrong and end up with no transport. :)

Ya.. unless u prepared to send your children to school by yourself, what you can do if all the transporters reluctant to reduce the price? They can claim that only petrol price coming down but not the rest like food and necessities.

Petrol price dropped, but not engine oil, tyres, maintenance and servicing charges... Of cos, other essential items still same...

I'm not transporter, but if you look from their perspective, you would do what they do as well.... if they can make enuf profit, it won't sustain. And when that happen, they might as well not do it at all....

That's what I did. Mine raised from RM80 to RM100 even before the petrol issue and then wanted to raise it some more. The distance from home to school is about 2 km. RapidKL only charges RM1 per day for school kids in uniform- can use the same ticket the whole day; to and fro as many times as you want. If one month has 20 schooling days then my total bus fare for that month comes to only RM20. Holiday times only pay out RM8 to 12 or so according to number of school days. My transporter wanted the full amount for about 8 to 12 days of school.

Just like many things in life, you gotta live with it.
Tell me, what can you do about it? Find another transporter? But you face the same thing. All of them have raised their prices, but nobody reduces when the pump prices go down. They are private transporters, not governed by law. They charge whatever they want, like it or not.
Unless you intend to transport your kids yourself, you are going to have to face it. Fact is, there is an imbalance of needs, we need them more than they need us.
