For all the talk and complaints of the reliability of the trains here, I think the biggest issue with the MRT is not in the equipment and hardware, rather in the people using the trains. Time after time I see rude behaviour by commuters, not waiting for passengers to alight before boarding, not giving up one’s seat to someone who needs it more. It is really a sad state of affairs and one which makes me not proud to be a Singaporean. We seem to have developed an ingrained habit of boarish uncultured behaviour. This is also evident in our vehicular traffic.
