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.

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.
