...tracking outcomes, such as "when I need a train, is it there?", he added.

Below is from The Straits Times, Singapore.

Commuters, commentators and armchair critics should just stick to tracking outcomes, such as "when I need a train, is it there?", he added.

1. Should "when' be capitalized?
2. Is it correct to place a comma after "there"?

Thanks.

    I would omit the comma after there and capitalize when, with a comma before it. But there are several different grammatical style guides in use, and not all of them agree.

    I'm on the fence. It's not really a quote, per se, it's just something they should track. I could see a case for keeping "when" in lower case.

    I could see capping "when", but I'd keep the whole thing in commas, though.

    I agree with Uriel- that you might find a variety of styles on this one.
