MRT has significantly changed public transportation in Singapore and is an integral part of the transportation landscape. It has completely changed the way people move around the city. There is no better way to travel around Singapore than using the Mass Rapid Transit system.
The MRT was established in Singapore in 1987, and it currently serves millions of commuters. Identifying and navigating the lines is easy with their color-coded names and unique names. MRT has five main lines: the North-South Line, East-West Line, Circle Line, Downtown Line, and Thomson-East Coast Line.
MRT lines connect northern and western Singapore to southern and eastern parts using the North-South Line and the East-West Line. A loop line connecting the business district and tourist areas in central Singapore, the Circle Line was completed in 2011. Downtown Line, which opened in 2013, connects the eastern part of Singapore with the central and western parts. Singapore’s northern and eastern parts will be connected by the Thomson-East Coast Line.
An excellent mode of transportation is the MRT system for several reasons. In addition, there are clean, spacious, and well-maintained MRT stations, which are frequent and punctual, with intervals of two to three minutes during peak hours. The MRT system is also affordable, depending on the distance traveled, and has toilets, elevators, and escalators in the stations.
Aside from reducing traffic congestion, the MRT system has reduced air pollution and carbon emissions. Thus, fewer cars on the road have decreased air pollution.
Public transportation can transform a city, as the MRT system exemplifies. Air quality and pollution in Singapore have been improved significantly due to its efficiency, convenience, affordability, and reduced traffic congestion. As Singapore develops and grows, MRT will continue to play a significant role in the transportation landscape.
