Exit and Way Out

Why do we have Exit signs and Way Out signs at the MRT stations?

This is my guess.

A long time ago, it was mandatory to have Exit signs to tell occupants of a premise on where is the Exit in case of a fire. (Actually, we have so few fires that this sign is hardly noticed).

When they introduce MRT stations, they need to tell the commuters where is the Way Out.

But the Way Out is usually the same as the Exit.

If our lawmakers or regulators were alert, they would have passed an amendment to the law that Way Out means Exit. So, there is no need to have Exit and Way Out in MRT stations.

But our Parliament was asleep, right?
