Fostering a caring commuting culture

Mr Melvin Yong: It reminds us that all of us can play a part in building and strengthening caring commuting culture in Singapore. It is not just about getting to our destination on time, but also about looking out for others who may be in need while on our daily commute.

Improving user-friendliness on public transport 

Mr Melvin Yong: This is also a key recommendation of our Land Transport Master Plan 2040 (LTMP2040), to make public transport more user friendly, to make public transport more inclusive. We hope that together, we can promote a better travelling environment, and a better travelling experience for everyone.
