MRT Lines is a tactile interpretation of the Land Transport Authority of Singapore’s 2015 map of the Mass Rapid Transit System, which includes all existing lines and those under construction. Groundbreaking for the massive public works project began in 1983 after a decade long rail vs. bus debate culminated in a 1981 comprehensive traffic study declaring rail to be more efficient. Singapore’s MRT system officially launched in 1988 and has been expanding ever since. By 2030, the Land Transport Authority aims to double the rail network from its current 178km to 360km.
