Something about the mrt in Singapore

While sitting at toa payoh mrt station waiting for my girlfriend, I noticed a very interesting phenomenon.

Its peak hour going home. This means alot of people are heading from the city back to the heartlands. I.e from Marina bay to jurong east.

However, counting the number of trains, I realised that within a 20 minute span, the trains towards Marina bay, with very little people on board, are arriving every two to three minutes.

The fully packed trains heading to jurong east come once every six minutes. And every alternate train terminates at yishun.

It's no wonder then that I had an uncle's tummy stuck to my back on the way back home just now.
