When JurongHealth approached SMRT in 2013 with their idea to create a first of its kind mobility park that included public transportation features, we immediately said yes. It sits well with our vision of “Moving People, Enhancing Lives”. SMRT’s experience transporting millions daily by rail and road transport can greatly contribute to such a park that brings rehabilitative care for patients to a whole new level. We are proud of this partnership with JurongHealth over the past three years.
We contributed a life-sized train, bus and taxi to replicate real-life conditions so that people with mobility needs can regain their confidence in taking public transport. Many of us take this daily routine for granted. But for those who have suffered some disability or illness, this seemingly simple activity can be both physically and emotionally challenging. Training and sharing sessions will be organised so that staff can assist patients and commuters to make the necessary adjustments and feel more comfortable when using our trains, buses and taxis.
