    MRTs - beware!

    by Sanaaa Written Sep 1, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    MRTs are one of the most common modes of transportation in Singapore. They are subway trains which travel at high speeds, are cheap and sometimes not underground. The doors open for about 5 minutes for people to get out and get in and then close automatically. The thing people should most watch out for is that MRT doors are not like elevators; when elevators are about to close, you can poke your hand in and stop them but doing that to an MRT train can prove to be dangerous as your hand can get stuck or worse. So its imperative people do not do this at an MRT station. If you miss your train, wait patiently, another will come along in a few minutes. Better late than never and Better safe than sorry!!

    Keeping to the left

    In Singapore, driving is on the left.

    Similarly, if you are standing on the escalator, keep to the left. This will allow those who are rushing to walk by you on the escalator on your right handside.

    Good idea to hold on to the railing as others have known to fall down the escalators which are long and steep in some places.

    Consider also using available lifts.

    MRT Escalator, Singapore

    Will catch you off guard especially if you need to walk slowly or are carrying bundles or children...but the MRT escalators move quickly, sucking you in and unceremoniously dumping off the other end.
    This was not noticed this with the non-MRT escalators in Singapore.
