SMRT praised for punctuality of trains breaking down

Always on time.


Singaporeans from all walks of life who like to take public transport because cars are for rich people in a car-lite country, are clapping their hands and praising SMRT for its punctuality.

This after the North South Line was disrupted during evening peak hour on June 1, boosting train breakdown punctuality, which comes a week after the Land Transport Authority said train services were more reliable in the first quarter of 2017.

One Singaporean, Huai Leow, said: “There is nothing unpredictable about this system.”

“The breakdowns are happening like clockwork in a disorderly, randomness laden world.”

“The predictability of breakdowns gives everyone a sense of security.”

Other locals said the predictability could work against SMRT’s favour though.

Another local, Luan Luan Huai, said: “Imagine if the trains started to break down unpredictably? What’s going to happen then?”

“I don’t think Singaporeans can deal with that. It will be tough adjusting to not knowing what is going to happen next.”

At press time, Singaporeans are expecting the MRT to break down during peak hour in the evening and again in the morning the next day.
