Trains – Mass Rapid Transit (MRT)
Mass Rapid Transit, or MRT, is a rapid transit system forming the major component of the railway system in Singapore, spanning most of the city-state. All MRT stations are equipped with barrier-free facilities like ramps, lifts and wheelchair-accessible toilets for use by elderly and persons with disabilities.
There are two wheelchair-accessible carriages on each train. Keep a lookout for wheelchair indicator stickers on the train doors to locate them. Visually impaired commuters can use the Braille plates in station lifts and follow the tactile ground surface indicators that will guide them from the entrance to the platform. The indicators also serve as warnings near the platform edge. Aboard the train, station names and audio instructions for transfers are announced at every station stop.
The hearing-impaired can find indications of arrival times and destinations of approaching trains on the Rail Travel Information System (RATIS) located on platforms. While travelling on the North-South and East-West lines, the SMRT Active Route Map Information System (STARiS) on display will specify the station of arrival. Train doors are also installed with lights that flash red to warn passengers before closing.
