FAIR TO PENALISE COMMUTERS WITH SURGE PRICING DURING PUBLIC BREAKDOWNS?

This evening, North-South Line had yet another major service disruption, trapping a large number of commuters in the trains and left many more waiting on platforms. Is it fair for commuters to be penalised for breakdown in the public transportation? And taxi companies, especially the company that operate the train lines, to rake in profit due to the service disruption?

TAMPINES RESIDENT: LIFT "UPGRADES" ARE USELESS, THEY STILL KEEP BREAKING DOWN!

Please do something about the lifts at tampines street 41 blk 425.... it has been countless of times that lift A have broken down, causing much inconvenience to residences who are physically disabled and requires the use of the lift. We have been told by the management that the lift has been upgraded every time it's broken down BUT it doesn't seemed to have worked in any way.

What kind of upgrading do the technicians do or the repair works that are done?!?! I am sure town counsil ems would have received MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY calls and complained abt lift A (CHECK THE NUMBER OF CALL RECORDS). The word 'sorry' from the call centre is not very useful as it won't help in resolving the situation of the lift. So I hope that Mr Baey can help to think of solutions or come up with something like installing back previous lift to aid in the convenience of residences. Look at how much effort is required to carry an elderly in a wheelchair? Do you think residences have superpower to do this all the time?

DOWNTOWN LINE DELAY IN MORNING RUSH HOUR AGAIN

The Downtown Line suffered a signalling fault early this morning, with the SBS Transit informing passengers that they should expect an extra 10 mins journey between Bukit Panjang and Chinatown stations.

However, most commuters reported that they actually had to spend 10 mins stationary at each station, and the problem had occurred much earlier than the announcement made by SBS Transit. So, omce again, a breakdown during morning peak hours. And the problems and issues faced by commuters were not fully properly addressed and broadcasted. If passengers were were delayed by 10 mins at each stop, how could there be only a 10 mins delay between the two stations mentioned?

Rush hour crowds are experiencing yet another train breakdown on Tuesday morning (18 Apr). The breakdown was due to a track fault which affected both the North-South and East-West lines. SMRT initially informed of a 10-minute delay from Bishan to Khatib before increasing it to 20 minutes. It also told commuters that they will have to wait for an additional 15 minutes from Paya Lebar to Simei stations. Train service is still slow but still available, and SMRT has just updated that it is working to recover its services.

BUKIT PANJANG LRT FINALLY GETS MAJOR OVERHAUL, AFTER 18 YEARS OF NEGLECT

Finally, after 18 long years, the Bukit Panjang LRT system is set to undergo a major overhaul. Experts have come out and say in the wake of the decision to overhaul is that the system that needs most work is the trains and the signalling system itself.

The SMRT had also said that the current system is more suited for short distances on flat terrain, rather than gradients - which it passes through in the Bukit Panjang area now. Makes you wonder when they first did the LRT system, did they not take this into consideration?
