Busy LRT no place for pensioners

Can the Light Rail Corporation give advice to elderly passengers, through its general announcements, for them not to take trains at busy hours if it is not strictly necessary?


I often see crowds of wobbly old people in their 60s and 70s travelling in the LRT during rush hours.


I am sure everyone who has seen this situation on our trains would agree it is unacceptable.


Advising the elderly not to travel at peak times would show we respect old people and care about their welfare.
