LUI TUCK YEW: WOMEN-ONLY MRT CABIN IS A WASTE OF TRAIN CAPACITY

In response to suggestions by MPs Dr Lily Neo and Low Thia Kiang to deploy women-only train cabins, Mr Lui said this idea had been raised and looked at carefully before.

“There are practical difficulties and challenges, such as how to and how strictly to enforce the rule, and also how this could sub-optimise the capacity of our trains,” the minister said.

“From the experience of other systems, the women-only cabins are often utilised less, meaning that more commuters will have to crowd into the other cabins or wait for the next train.”
