  1. Barrier-free boarding and alighting areas
  2. Graduated kerb edges
  3. Barrier-free toilets
  4. Priority queue zones with seats
  5. Nursing room to cater to the needs of the less mobile, elderly and families with young children
  6. Commuter care room for special needs commuters who need access to a quiet and calming space.

Transport workers will also have access to better facilities like an air-conditioned staff canteen, dedicated staff toilets, a cleaners’ room and a staff lounge.
