    It really depends on the needs of the family as they also change with time.

Maybe some might argue woodlands need not change train so more convenient. How about stations like CCK? They need to change at Jurong East too.

    So, it all depends on what MRT stations they are. The word 'MRT' itself does not or should not guarentee a premium while the word 'LRT' also does not mean condemnation. Calculate the rough timing is more accurate.
    LRT is above ground and we need to walk to MRT during the morning rush but the new upcoming MRTs are all below grounds.

    I have tried the LRT connecting to MRT and vice versa before. The experience inside a small cabin with stale air and not much ventilation is also least perferred.

    Perhaps we need to add on the walking time in comprison.

    EXISTING condos near MRT will have smaller premium as other condos will start to hv MRT as well. I don't see how condos with future MRT stations coming up can have smaller premium. Premium tends to go up when the MRT is closer to completion.
