agree! sianzOriginally posted by mr_sotong:it seem like the waiting time for the train had increase from 7 min to 8 min.. any1 realise tat?
Originally written on my blog:The 30 minute waiting time is for KTM Komuter off-peak and that's the minimum. Peak hours is 15 minutes with perpetually late trains. The plasma screens are on KL Monorail and BTS Skytrain in Bangkok. The 3-car trains are found in many places. Shan't say where are they. If you can't even wait for 8 minutes, please buy a car. Trying out other countries public transport made me appreciate even our non-aircon buses and Nissans.
Wheee... So bored so I'll post my quarrel with a high-class ah-soh at City Hall 3 days ago:
I'm on the side of the trains, ya? Her friend is from overseas.
*NSL arrives in City Hall towards Marina Bay*
*I ran out*
*EWL door closed*
*Saw ah-soh and her overseas friend*
Ah-soh: Oi wahlao... The train just leave like that arh... We have a right to complain, you know...
Friend: Never mind, it's ok.
Ah-soh: What ok?! 7 minutes can die one leh...
Me: The driver has a timetable precise in seconds. He can't wait.
Ah-soh: I don't care. (This got me realy pissed off liao.)
Me: Other countries have trains that come every 30 minutes and have plasma screens that show strictly advertisements.
Ah-soh: Other countries is other countries. Singapore cannot.
Me: And their trains only has 3 cars at most.
Ah-soh: Anyway, I still think the driver must wait for us.
Me: There's no driver. SMRT is driverless.
Ah-soh: Yes there is. I can prove it.
Me: COME ON! (At this time, I heard some girls giggling behind me. How could I let that slip out?!)
Me (in my mind): toot.
She knew she lost. She showed it. Ah but anyway, since her friend got embarassed over the 7 min thing, I help him pay back. Then the train arrives:
Ah-soh: I think I still should complain.
Friend: Nevermind LEH (dun speak Singlish if you don't know how to, bro.)
Ah-soh: The East-North Line has soooo much better frequency.
I wanted to say: For toot's sake, it's called the North-East Line and I waited 8 minutes at Kovan. Anyway, you complain to SMRT they won't reply one. (I didn't talk so this was what was in my mind.)
Anyway, she boarded the train, alive and kicking. Then I had a flashback. This bloddy Ah-soh looks like the one I saw on the Sentosa Bus and stood at the door, 1 hand on the handrail and 1 on the seat, thus creating a human barrier, cannot move back. I scolded her. I don't care if I'm much smaller, I even scold parents in my primary school.
Whee... Going to KL on Sunday... Go by bus, come back by TRAIN.
Ok, lets go irritate ppl on MSN now. Bye!
Got notice but not much difference overallOriginally posted by mr_sotong:it seem like the waiting time for the train had increase from 7 min to 8 min.. any1 realise tat?

SMRT...Originally posted by sinicker:i took the train frm CCK to WDL today at 1pm.

NEXT TRAIN : 9mins.
no way....Originally posted by SMRT 32373238:yea noticed it....
anyway kinda got me thinking... is there a chance of the NS-EW expanding such that SMRT buys a batch of 4th gen trains? and maybe expand the peak hour zone beyond yishun on the NS line?
