SINGAPORE: Last night, both train operators, SMRT and SBSTransit extended their operations to 24 hours. This was to allow visitors to go to Parliament House to say their last goodbyes to their beloved former PM, Lee Kuan Yew.
It was a nice touch much appreciated by Singaporeans.
Singaporeans by and large applauded the move and said that it showed the softer side of the transport companies that lately had been inundated with accusations of being too profit-driven.
“I would like to say thank you especially to the employees of the two train companies. They had to work extra at short notice. I truly salute them,” said Mohd Hanafi, 17 a student.
