Unusual Singapore Things #4

The trains have no drivers.  They are ‘robot trains’ (according to a little girl staying in the same apartment block as us).

Which probably goes a long way to explaining why they run so efficiently – no pesky unionised drivers to go on strike.

It also explains why it’s so easy for family groups to get separated boarding the trains – no drivers to check that everybody is on.

  1. I believe that there are drivers, but they’re just there “in case”, and don’t actually HAVE to drive the trains if they don’t want.

    (This is assuming that “trains” = MRTs.)

Anything to add? I love to hear your thoughts!
