The MIT which has been set-up at the NSTP driveway was launched by MRT Corp to showcase what MIT offers – easy access to information about MRT.

“It has been on the road since June 2012, and has been deployed at shopping centres, offices, mosque, schools and colleges, morning as well as night market and also property sales galleryies.
