Thanks to a recent change in the nature and location of my work, I did not take public transport that often. I am sure that the statement below was not due to me.
Which does make 1 wonder, what is the capacity that our MRT was built for, because I was once led to believe that, it is a matter of if we choose to board or not.
As such, it is clear that, the recent occurence of train having issue has absolutely nothing to with SMRT or the LTA whatsoever, it is not their fault.
And we, as commuters, should just
However, I do have questions
While it is possible that we all staggered our time to avoid over crowding the public transport, can LTA come out with an app that let us indicate our time at the MRT station so that others can decide if they should wake up even earlier to avoid crowding?
Can I tell my boss that I need to clock out earlier so that I will not crowd the MRT on my way home?
Can We have an excuse chit to show to our children's childcare so that we will not be fined when we are late to pick up our kids due to train breakdown?
Can I ask that PTC be finally able to include in their SLA that if there are train breakdown after a fare hike is annouced, they should just pay for the fare hike themselves instead? I mean, I am not asking them to resign or comit Harakiri which is what honourable people did in the good old days
In the mean time, please know that COE just went up and that there will be more Gantry in case you are thinking of driving
And for the rest,
We still need to ask ourselves, how long is the journey going to take and how far that we have to walk to our destination.
