The North East Line (NEL) of Singapore's mass rapid transit system in 2003 became the world's first driverless line. The operator SBS Transit still maintains staff onboard these trains. Apparently they still have the option of manning the trains during peak hours and on failure of trains. For example, if a train is "dead" on the tracks and needs to be hauled out by another train, personnel are needed to disable some of the system protocols on train master computer.
This shot is on the East West Line, operated by the SMRT. It runs predominantly over ground and therefore always is manned.
