Bold targets set for MRT reliability

Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan has set a bold target for MRT network reliability this year: for trains to travel about 50 per cent further without a disruption taking place.

He told Parliament yesterday the goal is for MRT trains to travel an average of 200,000km between delays of more than five minutes.

Last year, the “mean kilometre before failure” figure was an average of 133,000 train-km travelled between delays, itself an improvement of about 40 per cent from 2014’s 93,000km.
