Things You Didn’t Know About Singapore’s MRT System

#7 Graciousness Mascots

There are a total of five mascots in the Thoughtful Bunch that were created by the Land Transport Authority to promote graciousness while riding Singapore’s MRT System. These fashionable, capsule-like characters include Give-Way Glenda, Move-in Martin, Stand-Up Stacey, Bag-Down Benny, and Hush Hush Hannah. They can be seen plastered on the walls at certain MRT stations as well as on the interior of trains, to remind commuters to be exhibit considerate behaviour when using the MRT.

#8 Thomson-East Coast Line

Everyone is excited about the upcoming Thomson-East Coast Line, not only because there will be a spanking new, aerodynamically-designed train to ride, the train service will also provide increased accessibility to commuters and connect them from the north to the east of Singapore. The new train, made by Kawasaki Heavy Industries & CSR Qingdao Sifang in China, will also possess new features, such as tip-up seats, five doors on each side of a carriage, and a dynamic route map LED display.

#9 Tactile Guidance

It is good to note that almost all train stations are equipped with an extensive tactile guidance system for commuters with visual impairment. This system consists of tactile tiles with raised surface of elongated and round studs. The tiles with elongated studs are directional, while those with round studs serve as decision points, allowing the visually handicapped to travel independently on the MRT with confidence.
