A photo of an advertisement at a train station that appears to be by Uber poking fun at SMRT for its frequent breakdowns has been circulating online. The advertisement says:

SMRT break down again? Wait for what? Uber lah.

The advertisement has been proven to be a doctored image. Uber disclaimed any responsibility to the photo and clarified in a Facebook statement that they take pride that their services complement SMRT’s transit services:

“We can confirm that a spoof ad circulating online was not done by us. With one quarter of rides in Singapore starting and ending at a train station, we take pride in being able to complement public transit. We appreciate the work that SMRT is doing.”

SMRT shared Uber’s statement on their Facebook page and said:

“Thanks to Uber for clarifying this. The ad circulating online is in bad taste and it’s not funny especially to our people who are working so hard 24/7.”

Instead of commiserating with SMRT, commuters roasted the organisation online, indicating that the group is overreacting when it has bigger problems to worry about:
