All MRT/LRT stations in Singapore are barrier-free, allowing commuters with different mobility needs such as persons with disabilities, families with young children, and the elderly to board and use the train system.
Other improved features have also been added to aid commuters, as seen for the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL). These include:
All bus interchanges and 98 per cent of bus shelters in Singapore are barrier-free, and all public buses are wheelchair accessible.
Seats at bus stops have also been designed with elderly commuters in mind, and have a more ergonomic structure to help commuters sit and get up with greater ease.
Most bus interchanges have baby care rooms for families with young children. Since 2020, new bus interchanges have such family-friendly facilities incorporated into their design. Similar family-friendly facilities can also be found in interchange stations
on the TEL.
Commuters should feel safe, secure and comfortable on our public transport system. Each can play a part to care for fellow commuters who need a helping hand. In 2020, the Caring SG Commuters Committee was set up to foster the creation of a more caring, welcoming and inclusive commuter culture. The Committee continues to build on the Caring SG Commuters movement to create a culture of care on our public transport.
