    KLIA systems down

    KLIA systems down, travellers told to arrive four hours earlier Travellers have been advised to be at their respective terminals at least four hours ahead of departure to avoid missing their flights. — Picture by Miera Zulyana KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 22 — Internet connection and flight check-in systems have been disrupted at both terminals of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) said today. MAHB said the disruption started last night and is affecting several airport systems such as WiFi connection, flight information display, check-in counters and baggage handling systems. The disruption is expected to continue throughout the day. However, it said its teams are working round the clock to rectify the problem and minimise the inconvenience to passengers. Passengers are also advised to contact the company’s Airport CARE Ambassadors or call 03-8776 2000 if they require more information regarding flight details. https://www.malaymail.com/news/malaysia/2019/08/22/klia-systems-down-travellers-told-to-arrive-four-hours-earlier/1782990?utm_source=izooto&utm_medium=push_notifications&utm_campaign=KLIA%20systems%20down%20travellers%20told%20to%20arrive%20four%20hours%20earlier&utm_content=&utm_term=

    Public transport to go cashless

    Surprised nobody start thread yet on this... http://www.sgcarmart.com/news/article.php?AID=17435 Next time cannot bring out coins to take bus liao...
  10. Singaporeans that complain about being packed like sardines every morning should be grateful that our MRT system is maintained at high standards. Delays and frequent break downs are safety measures, designed into our MRT to avoid overstressing the trains. Sincerely Future MRT CEO (hopefully) more links http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=337_1329926091
  11. SINGAPORE: Commuters may soon be required to put their belongings through an X-ray scanner and walk through a metal detector before entering fare gates at MRT stations. This is part of enhanced security screening being tested at several stations, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said on Monday (Nov 5). The trial will begin on Nov 12. LTA said the data from the trial will enable it to "streamline and optimise its security screening processes, and reduce the future impact on daily rail operations". "We will also collect feedback from commuters and public transport operators to improve the effectiveness of future security operations and emergency exercises." LTA chief executive Ngien Hoon Ping said the authority will continue to enhance its security measures to ensure that the transport system remained safe and secure for all commuters. "By the end of this year, public transport operators will also progressively introduce the use of handheld metal detectors in their security checks at bus interchanges and MRT stations," he added https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/commuters-to-undergo-security-screening-at-mrt-stations-as-part-10898938

    Pervert on MRT!

    not my video, came across this video on fb
  13. Nowadays Singaporeans too stressed up. Everything also fight boxing style. Can anyone help to attach the video here. https://stomp.straitstimes.com/singapore-seen/mma-showdown-at-dhoby-ghaut-mrt-station#xtor=CS1-10
  14. Let's continue here so the bus thread won't be hijacked. @SiLangKia @13177 @Tohto @Atrecord It isn't about breakdowns, it's about all kinds of trains whether its MRT or LRT or electric trains or diesel train or steam locomotive, magnetic-levitation, high speed, low speed, mid high speed, metre gauge, inter-city, inter-state, intra-city, international, .. I don't consider myself a train seow. The one thing that first attracted me to trains as a boy, other than the trains passing through Bukit Timah, was it was the most visible track on all maps - dark black and white lines, more visible than roads. People these days don't look at maps anymore since there is Google Map, and highways are more accessible than trains. And then there was the competition between Germany and Japan bullet trains trying to beat each other's record, famous trains like the Orient Express, In Germany, they got suspended trains like this for a hundred years already. When I first saw it on TV in 70's/80's, I went "wow", like it comes out from Sci-Fi movie. I remember MBT took a team to holiday travel around Europe and US to come back with the LRT idea, they also shared photos like this.

    MRT Down, Commuters Walk Tracks

  16. Dear All, Wife's relatives are flying to Singapore next week for about 4 nights' stay (husband and wife). Wife volunteered to find hotel for them, which means I am doing the work. Budget about $100-$120 per night. Walking distance to MRT station - very important, or I might be volunteered to be their driver. And they are going to take the train to airport for the flight back. When it comes to hotels in Singapore, I am stumped as I cannot remember the last time I stayed in a hotel in Singapore. Geylang area is out for obvious reasons. Are the budget hotels in Chinatown ok? Or those at Bencoolen area OK? Saw a V Hotel Bencoolen which has quite good review in Agoda. Tenkiu...

    Pregnant or just fat?

    Took MRT the other day. Train quite empty & got seat so i sat (not reserved seat). Then next station, suddenly alot of ppl came in and ppl all chiong for seat. Then saw this woman walk in nearby and stood up (not in front of me). As usual, the ppl she stood in front of suddenly kena sleeping bug attack. She maciam got slight tummy like 3-4 mths pregnant liddat. But she was also abit on the plump side. So dunno if pregnant or juz fat. Anyway, stood up to offer her my seat but dunno if she will kena insulted if i suggest she was pregnant. But as usual, once i stood up, the other vultures zoomed in. Got off at the next stop. Qn is; how to tell is someone is pregnant or juz fat?
  20. Here’s an article by Mr David Mason, an ‘ang moh’, who lives and works in Singapore for several months a year. He’s been here for so many years that he even remembers what public transport was like in the days before the MRT was built, and when there was no air-con on public buses *gasp!* Singapore’s come a long way, now there’s integrated transport hubs, sheltered link ways. And much of our public transport system now cater to those who are less mobile, e.g. wheelchair accessible public buses, green man plus which gives more ‘green time’ to seniors and those with disabilities. Our public transport system isn’t perfect and there’s the occasional hiccups, but compared to many places around the world, it’s really still ‘very good’. Source : LTA Facebook
  21. This place has changed so much. So many new buidings and an overhead pedestrian network. Here are two videos, if you haven't been to Jurong East lately. They call this J-walk. Jurong Lake District Pedestrian network. In this video, I walk from Jurong East MRT to the E2I Devan Nair Institute.
  22. Back to Singapore for 2 days. Took my children to take the MRT. To my surprised and horror, I can't buy stored value concession tickets for them because only Singapore students can buy or children under 7 + under 0.9m can buy. If I want to buy, have to go to transit link ticket office (which not all stations has) with their passports to apply. Then I went to those ticket machines to buy single trip. Another BIG shock next. There is NO children ticket to buy. All standard fare. WTF is that? I have NEVER travelled to a place where there is NO concession ticket for children. Why is Singapore transport like that? So until now, I haven't got my children the tickets because the ticket office when I passed by was not opened. Only open after 12pm and then close sometime midday and open a few hours next. Just ranting... Not a major issue but don't think it's fair for tourists. And my children are Singaporeans.... End up I take taxi better since they are charged adult fares.

  25. Here we go again & the spin doctors are hard at it doing window dressing; http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/from-april-a-2-8-hike-in/1605426.html SINGAPORE: There will be an overall increase of 2.8 per cent to public transport fares following the conclusion of the 2014 Fare Review Exercise, the Public Transport Council (PTC) announced on Wednesday (Jan 21). How the 2.8 per cent figure was calculated: By aggregating the 3.4 per cent fare adjustment quantum carried over from the 2013 Fare Review Exercise with the -0.6 per cent figure from 2014, the PTC said. But fares for senior citizen, and existing monthly travel concession prices will not rise, said the PTC. The Transport Ministry separately announced on Wednesday that fares for lower-wage workers and persons with disabilities will not increase, while the monthly concession pass for persons with disabilities will remain at S$60 per month. “In total, more than 1.1 million commuters will see their fares unchanged,” the PTC said in a press release. FARE CHANGES FROM APRIL From Apr 5 this year, adult card fares for buses and trains will increase by 2 to 5 cents, while student concessionary fares will increase by 1 cent, the PTC announced. Cash fares for adult bus and train rides will increase by 10 cents, while senior and student cash fares will remain unchanged. The prices of all monthly concession passes for adults, National Servicemen and senior citizens will remain the same, it reiterated. The PTC said bus and train fares will continue to be affordable, even for lower-income groups, as household income growth has generally outpaced household expenditure in public transport. For instance, in 2013, the second quintile (the 21st to 40th income percentile) and second decile (11th to 20th income percentile) of households in Singapore spent 2.2 per cent and 3.1 per cent of their monthly income on public transport, respectively. These were down from the 3.2 per cent and 4.6 percent, respectively, in 2003, it said. Said PTC Chairman Richard Magnus: “In approving the fare increase and deciding on the quantum, the Council made a concerted effort to minimise the impact on commuters, even to the extent of insulating some from the increase altogether. Overall, the fare adjustments for the 2014 fare exercise are lower than last year’s adjustments.” IMPACT ON OPERATORS With the fare increments, the PTC said the two public transport operators – SBS Transit and SMRT – will have to contribute S$5.5 million and S$8 million, respectively, to the Public Transport Fund. The total of S$13.5 million is S$2 million more than their contribution last year, according to the press release. The Government will utilise the Public Transport Fund to provide Public Transport Vouchers to lower-income households to mitigate the increase in their travel expenditure, it added. “I am always very concerned not only with making transport fares affordable, but making sure that our low-income families who need more assistance will be looked after,” Mr Magnus said. “The contributions to the Public Transport Fund by the operators will help defray the travel expenditure of these needy families.” "PLEASED" VULNERABLE GROUPS NOT AFFECTED BY HIKES: LUI Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew said on Facebook that he was "pleased" that more than 1.1 million commuters, particularly more vulnerable groups like senior citizens and persons with disabilities, will not experience a fare increase. "Looking at the overall outcome of this year’s fare adjustment exercise, I believe the Public Transport Council has achieved a good balance between keeping fares affordable for Singaporeans and maintaining the viability and sustainability of our public transport system," he wrote. He added that the 250,000 public transport vouchers of S$30 will be provided to needy commuters, and the ministry aims to simplify the application process further. "We also have other plans on the meaningful use of the Public Transport Fund and I will share these with you when we are ready," the minister said.
