    after the previous breakdown in the previous dec, we are still hopeful that there would be improvements.

    Now, not only trains continuously break down, the medical system is also showing signs of strain.....and we are gradually moving from hopefulness to hopelessness.

    sums up quite well how i feel too. I take the trains everyday.

    and after my expecting wife told me she was caught in the Outram park MRT power failure 'walk by torchlight' situation, i told her to take cab from now on instead.

    the thing is.. it just feels like the definition of public transport seems very very stretched in SG.

    The public transport is another form of tax
    If you need to use it, you have no choice but to pay the price
    I eats, shoots & leaves

    Not just Singapore, Hong kong MTR isn't too reliable too. The MTR mobile app on my phone showed train disruptions msg a few times already in past months. maybe time for a real repair.

    The system was not designed to handle extremely big population. The powerful entity who wanted SG's population to hit 6 Million is the root cause.

    If we force the MRT system beyond design limits, breakdown is to be expected.

    There can be a 1 maintenance day per month when there will be zero MRT service.

    If we have parallel transport system like sky rail or equally efficient buses our population can go beyond 6 millions no problem.

    We still have an option for a cheap motor bike, or even just an electric bike.
