Commuters can now better identify others who might require special care and attention when travelling on public transport. 

This is because they will be wearing special stickers that correspond to their needs. 

Expectant mothers, senior citizens, parents travelling with infants, commuters with mobility needs and unwell passengers can collect the sticker at Passenger Service Centres along North-South East-West and Circle Lines, as well as, SMRT Bus Interchanges. 

SMRT will also be undergoing a trial of priority queues for lifts at 12 selected stations such as Outram Park, Kent Ridge and Yishun. 

Floor stickers will be placed at the entrance to lifts at the 12 MRT stations, demarcating new Priority queues for those in greater need of using the lift. 

SMRT says it hopes that both the care stickers and priority queues will work well to encourage good travel etiquette.
