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

#10 Disneyland Neverland

It takes seemingly forever to travel between Khatib and Yio Chu Kang MRT, 6 minutes to be exact. The space that stands between these two stations is large enough to build a theme park, and Disneyland was previously proposed to be constructed there, along with another station called Lentor. The deal for Disneyland did not go through, but Lentor station will still be built along the upcoming Thomson-East Coast line. For now, riders along the two aforementioned stations can continue to admire the scenery of Lower Seletar Reservoir and pristine vegetation.

#11 Travel Chit

Ever got stuck in a delay and need more concrete proof to your boss or teacher the reason you were late? There is a thing called Travel Chit, which is an official slip of paper that can be obtained from the passenger service centre at any affected MRT station, to certify that your travel had been delayed by a train service disruption. Passengers may also request for an electronic copy of a travel chit online to excuse themselves from their latecoming.

#12 The Coin Mat

At Bartley MRT, there is a bronze coloured wall of one-cent coins, which is an astounding art installation created by local painter Jane Lee in 2008. There are a total of 160,000 one-cent coins plastered on the 8.5m by 5m wall near the ticketing machines. Although such coins are no longer in use, their beauty continues to shine through this artwork.
