    I am on a bus or (an) MRT train during peak hour...

    Since the accident, I have been wearing a neck brace when I am on a bus or (an) MRT train during peak hour so that other passengers will be more careful when they walk past me.

    Is 'an' needed?

    Thanks.

    I would make it sound more like a habitual action which continues by saying "Since the accident, I wear a neck brace whenever I am on a bus or MRT train during rush hour, so that other passengers ..."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
