MRT train lines to come under a single operator

There are advantages for all the MRT train lines to come under a single operator. However, there is a snag. How can this be overcomed? Read my suggestion here.

Aiyoh, no difference at all. It is just a question of which hand operates which line.

As for compensation, no problem. It is also a question of putting money either into the right pocket or the left pocket.

The only problem is convincing Singaporeans and commuters that it is really in their interest.

Mr Tan,

I agree with you if it happens outside S'pore.

Though by awarding to different train operators, it will increase level of competition which is good for train commuters such as better level of service, fairer fare structure and shorter waiting time.

But if I'm not mistaken, comfort delgro and SMRT is under the care of "one corporation"? So be it who runs the train service is still the same one, status quo will remain unchanged.

Whoever operates the train service is not important to us commuters. What we want is an efficient system and a fair fare structure.
