Air con in MRT trains too weak? SMRT replies.

WE THANK Mr Huang Guofeng for his feedback ("Too stuffy inside trains"; Feb 28). The air-conditioning in trains is set at 24 deg C, which is a temperature setting that optimises comfort and energy efficiency.

We thank Mr Huang and all passengers who rendered help. Bernadette Low (Ms) Manager, Corporate Marketing and Communications
