Sunday Sound of Singapore – MRT entrance & exit
Sound on 🔈
You don’t really notice the subtle difference. You think sounds of common things would be the same everywhere. There are not.
This sound is synonymous of going places… The MRT (and the buses) takes me to those places I want to explore in Singapore safely and so so efficiently.
The Mass Rapid Transit system (MRT) is a rapid transit system in Singapore and the island country’s principal mode of railway transportation. The system commenced operations in November 1987. The public transportation system,m averages a daily ridership of 3.4 million in 2019. The MRT network encompasses 216 km (134 mi) with 127 operational stations (28 of which are interchange stations) dispersed across six lines. The MRT is the oldest, busiest, and most expansive metro system in Southeast Asia. It is fully automated and is the most extensive driverless rapid transit system in the world. A number of underground stations double as purpose-built air raid shelters; these stations incorporate deep-level station boxes cast with hardened concrete and blast doors fashioned out of reinforced steel to withstand conventional aerial and chemical ordnance.
~~Every city has its own color, smell, sound, and vibe. While I can share the colors through photography and sometime the vibe too, I thought I would try to share with you the sounds that are so specific to Singapore. ~~
