Themed Trains, Stations and More

LTA started the Move In Groove (MIG) programme in 2014 to look at how we can creatively transform spaces within MRT trains and stations to make the overall public transport experience more pleasant for commuters. Together with our Public Transport Operators (PTOs), we work with community partners to explore and design public transport spaces that they can co-own and at the same time, add vibrancy to the network. By using unique visuals and creative messaging, we hope to encourage good commuting behaviour and make the journey more pleasant and memorable for everyone.

Latest Updates

As we usher in the Year of the Rabbit this Lunar New Year, join us in celebrating the festivities on the public transport network as we dress up some of our trains, buses and MRT stations with festive designs.

The Lunar New Year is celebrated by Chinese communities around the world which lasts for 15 days. Families and friends get together with the ritual of exchanging red packets, sharing festive treats and enjoying reunion dinners.

Look out for our latest Lunar New Year-themed trains featuring the rabbit zodiac and other iconic elements inspired by the beliefs and traditions of the Chinese community.

These celebrations brighten up our network, and strengthen social cohesion and cultural appreciation with our fellow Singaporeans. Besides decorating the trains and stations, we also work with the community and PTOs to placemake communal spaces with lively community performances closer to the heartlands.
