the following is a media release by TOC:

There have been many mishaps on the trains. Has SMRT learnt from these experiences? Was there any business recovery plan which all staffs of the public transport operators are trained in, to know what to do in an emergency like the one which happened on 15 December? Is the root cause of problem a profit driven culture? Overcrowded trains are good for profits. Less frequent maintenance is good for profits. Who should be accountable? It is the health and safety of the commuters that we are talking about. Was regulatory oversight and assumptions that ‘things will be fine as long we have trusted aides to run the show’ the reasons for these serious lapses? These are all questions we the commuters have. Someone has to give up their seat.

Come join us at Speakers’ Corner tomorrow at 4pm.

请让位吧!

新加坡地铁有限公司和康福德高到底有没有从最近频频出状况的地铁事故中吸取了任何教训?他们到底有没有措施和能力去应付如十二月十五日的紧急状况?唯利是图的经营文化是否是问题的症结?拥挤的列车是盈利的最好保证。削减例常检查也有益增加盈利。谁应该负起这问题的责任?这关乎乘客的安全与健康。管制是否因太过信赖亲信而松散,从而成为这种种过失的诱因?这一些都是所有乘客所想解答的疑问。有人必须为此承担责任而让贤了。

来吧!明天下午4点,跟我们一起到芳林公园演说者角落去示威抗议吧!
