Do not read too much into SMRT carrying 70 passengers per KM

Recently, an article has indicated that SMRT carry 70 passengers per KM, 10 more than Japan. Do not read more into it because the article did not say the whole story. The comparison was for average passenger-km per vehicle-km.

So what does this indicate? It just means that SMRT is squeezing too many passengers per vehicle compared with other more efficient metros such as Hong Kong and Japan. I'm not sure what's the whole point in bringing this up in the article.

Sigh, that's why I am getting jaded with the SG govt. They like to play the "numbers-to-make-us-look-good" game, instead of focusing on the real job and work towards improving our people's lives.
If the govt is good, people will see it for themselves and praise the govt, without them having to blow their own trumpet.
