My point: Install water coolers at public transport stations

I hope the authorities can install water coolers at MRT stations and bus interchanges.

Water coolers are present at the airport, which is air-conditioned, so why not in public transport stations in hot and humid Singapore?

Such additional amenities will not cost a lot of money and will offer multiple benefits - commuters can quench their thirst before getting on the train or bus; the option is also more environmentally friendly and cheaper than buying bottled water.
