A petition has been started pushing for SMRT to be entered into the Guinness Book of Records for the “highest number of delays and disruptions for a developed Asian country”.
This comes after 3 breakdowns in 3 the past 3 days during peak hour traffic.
The petition reads:
“Train disruptions and delays have continued unabated and at increasing frequency since 2011, despite the Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong apologising and promising to fix the problem during a rally then.
We are only passed the first half of 2017 and already, we have lost count on the number of disruptions which have been happening everyday without fail.
As such, we are petitioning for SMRT to be entered into the Guinness Book of Records for the highest no. of delays and disruptions for a developed Asian country.
Please support this Petition. Together let’s keep our world moving!”
MRT breakdowns have doubled since 5 years ago.
75 percent of commuters Redwire surveyed said that they fear breakdowns whenever they take the train.
Despite this, an LTA survey showed that commuters gave transport operators an A1 report card for performance.
