As SMRT’s public relations team combats brickbats online due to not providing adequate and sufficient updates on train service disruptions, its last attempt to put a positive spin on a customer satisfaction report has also backfired.

Rex King: No sense of shame. It’s bad enough that the MRT service has gone from bad to worse. Now we still have to tolerate your own delusional self-praise.

Lynn Ashley Sim: Why talk about the improvement when the reports also mentioned the declining satisfaction in the train service? Stop picking the good things to say when there is a serious problem with the system.

Gath Cho: Ownself CHECK ownself…. Confirm pass with flying colors lah…. Wah Liao eh…..

Hwee Teng Lee: If it is improving, just keep quiet because you will jinx it.

We are pleased to note that the customer satisfaction scores for SMRT’s bus and taxi services continue to improve. We…
