1987 - Tracing our Tracks

By ONO Creates - http://www.onocreates.com/

We pay tribute to the huge pillar of our transport system – the MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) – through this illustration. Launched in 1987, it has come a long way in complementing our extensive bus services, bringing convenience to commuters.

This piece documents the visual cues of a train journey, from entering the gantries at the bottom, to the platforms in the middle, and finally the much taken-for-granted ride through the heartlands.

We encourage you to take some time to appreciate the beauty found in the minimalistic details of our comprehensive train system, where the thoughtful design of every nook and cranny often escapes the eye of the preoccupied commuter.
