    trains that are new, that do not smell of pee, that have no visible graffiti on the external surfaces, and seats that do not have holes in them (self explanatory).


    have you tried taking a train at 44 degrees where the air conditioner is coughing out, like a church mice, cold air to you in spasms? not fun at all.


    seriously, Singapore has it good when compared to other countries and their public transport.
    This does not look like what I experience some 15 years ago - but 15 years is a long time so I guess the equipment did not get upgraded or at least repaired for 15 years

    It's very hard to control 3rd world elements.

    Well, having deployed 500 engineers and shift crews to catch people eating and drinking on MRT, they probably had slackened in their very own duties.

    I wonder if LTA can issue a $10million fine on SMRT then and then re-issue them out as rebates to commuters.

    There is absolutely nothing that the men in the streets ca do about such inefficiency. If you write to ST, they will not publish. If you post to Stomp, SMRT could not be bother as they monopolize this market.

    There will be survey that tell people that Singaporean are a happy lot. Out of 4.5M people, they surveyed only 1558 and came to that conclusion. BTW, who are these 1558 people who took that survey? LOL

    So we got to live with it. The only time I saw the MRT trains have places to sit during peak hours was during the last major International events held in Suntec. I could not believe my eyes when I see trains comes in empty during peak hours and the frequency was real short.
