Apparently, there’s a train disruption this morning where no service runs between Yew Tee MRT station and Bukit Gombak MRT station. All commuters were greeted with this notice either when they step into the station, or when they are about to board the train:


And the human traffic was so bad that commuters were advised to take the train down to Marina Bay and back up again. Hmm… I thought SMRT just got fined recently? It seems like a fare hike is imminent.

That aside, I do hope that it’s because of a technical issue rather than someone jumping down onto the tracks (although the latter may result in a fare hike eventually because of increased operational costs). As someone put it, if it’s a breakdown, it’s SMRT’s problem. If someone jumped down, then it’s PM’s problem.
