MAINSTREAM MEDIA TOOK 3 WEEKS TO REPORT THE OBVIOUS ABOUT MRT RELIABILITY?

Why did it take about 23 days for the mainstream media to as I believe to the best of my knowledge – to write about how ridiculous the statistics announced by the Government on 27 July was – that “the MRT system’s reliability has improved by three times since Mr Khaw Boon Wan moved to the Transport Ministry in 2015, but the minister wants to raise the bar much higher”?

Our reader noticed delays on the Circle Line just after Minister Khaw Boon Wan celebrated 250 days of having no problems. "Sometimes we ask how come MRT so many problem he nv speak up? But maybe it's good that he's quiet? Otherwise once he speak up then surely some line, whichever line he mention, will have problem". Shhh!

SMRT USE ACRONYMS TO CONFUSE COMMUTERS DURING MAJOR MRT BREAKDOWN?

MRT services are all down! Free shuttle buses are no where to be seen! Worst, SMRT is trying to confuse commuters by using acronyms that nobody understands unless they google. Why can't SMRT use the name of the mrt station instead? Why use stupid acronyms to compound our misery during peak hour inconvenience? Is SMRT trying to smoke commuters and confuse us and claim it was all a misunderstanding?

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?
