However, it appears that even with the new MRT line, it just isn't enough to cope.
OK, we have to put it into context. The Straits Times attributes the crowds to unexpected demand when the stations first opened.
However, the point still stands that, depsite all the efforts, Singapore's public transport is still unable to keep up with the rapidly rising population.
It puts commuters in a bind, because it feels like Singaporeans are being increasingly squeezed out, whether on the roads or on public transport.
A thread has popped up on MyCarForum, sparked by a letter to The Straits Times (again) from a commuter who claimed to have sold his car when the Circle Line opened.
And it raised an interesting question: Do you think our public transport is good enough to replace private transport for most people as of yet?
It most certainly is an interesting topic for debate and discussion.
