Crossing the road can be a stressful affair for those who are less mobile. Green Man+ allocates a longer green man time for the elderly and Persons with Disabilities (PWD). Elderly pedestrians and PWD can expect up to 13 seconds more green man time when they make use of signalised pedestrian crossings fitted with Green Man+.
They simply need to tap their CEPAS-compliant senior citizen concession card or PWD concession card on the reader mounted above the standard push-button on the traffic light pole to extend green man time by between 3 and 13 seconds, depending on the width of the crossings. Over 1,000 pedestrian crossings have been equipped with Green Man+ function (PDF) across Singapore. (PDF, 83kb).
Elderly pedestrians aged 60 years and above or PWD who are Singapore citizens or permanent residents may apply for the senior citizen concession cards or PWD concession cards respectively from any TransitLink Ticket Office or at the TransitLink website.
