MRT Signage

Media Replies 10 Apr 2015

We refer to Mr Lai Wai Mun’s letter “Shanghai's colour-coded system points the way’” (ST, 31 Mar 2015).

Singapore’s MRT system has evolved rapidly, and with it, our signage systems.  While the MRT and LRT lines are colour-coded, we have also used international standard pictograms, to help guide commuters and made improvements with each successive opening of new lines.

We appreciate Mr Lai’s observations of the user-friendliness of the signage of  transit systems abroad. Our upcoming review of transit signage will be comprehensive and consider the many best practices in place in other transit systems to determine what is best for Singapore’s commuters.

We thank Mr Lai Wai Mun for his feedback.
