SINGAPORE - Pregnant women, senior citizens or other passengers in need are now able to request "care stickers" aimed at making it easier for them to get a seat.

Public transport operator SMRT said on Friday that commuters can ask for these stickers at all passenger service centres along its MRT lines and bus interchanges.

They are meant for expectant mothers, senior citizens, parents travelling with infants, commuters with mobility needs and unwell passengers.

SMRT vice-president for rail operations Alvin Kek said: "While passengers are generally courteous and are willing to offer seats to those in need, we feel that a sticker could help commuters identify and extend care more easily."
