SMRT have not commented on the latest track fault. The Transport Minister have also not spoken on how train breakdowns and crowds waiting for more than 5 minutes on a single platform might not be a good thing in light of the coronavirus situation.
A Facebook post shared on Wednesday July 17th has detailed on how a Chinese Auntie had refused to sit beside a Bangla worker on the train, even though he had only occupied one seat, and the seat next to him was empty.
Most recently, Singaporeans have been impressed with former Singaporean Cliff Tan, who came up with a map design of the MRT system that is not linear and rigid. Most have also called on LTA to update their map design with that of Cliff Tan's, as the LTA ones are in straight lines and uses 45 degree angles.
A woman had her leg stuck in the platform gap at Buona Vista MRT station this morning. Although she escaped mostly unharmed, an observer noticed that many Singaporeans were selfish and did not try to help. While the SMRT staff tried their best, they did not look like they were first-aid trained too. In times of emergency, do you think we will be able to depend on people for help?
15th November morning, I was riding the MRT towards Joo Koon from Pioneer. I was at the front cab of the train that almost reached Joo Koon MRT. At exactly 8.20 am, there was a loud bang, and a violent shaking threw everyone onto the floor. The lights also suddenly went out. I almost thought we were about to fall over.
The optimal train of 12 - 16 carriages can carry more than 1000 commuters from point A to point B for an average distance of 30km in less than 30 minutes. Whereas, a bus can only carry up to 80 people even if it's double decker. Do your math and you will know that buses are not feasible nor efficient to transport commuters from one part of the island to another.
