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 Tiger, the celebratory spirit of the Lunar New Year extends to the public transport network where some of our trains, buses, MRT stations and Integrated Transport Hubs are dressed up in the festive design. 

The Lunar New Year is undoubtedly the most important event in the Chinese calendar and celebrated by Chinese communities around the world. The celebrations last for 15 days, when family and friends will get together with the ritual exchange of red packets and sharing of festive treats and reunion dinners.

Check out some of the fun facts featured in this year's Chinese New Year festive design on buses, MRT and wall murals:

Tiger

The Tiger is the third animal in the Chinese zodiac. It symbolises strength and bravery.

Reunion Dinner

On Chinese New Year’s Eve, family members will gather for a meal to reaffirm the love and respect that bind them together as a family.

Steamboat

For some families, it is an annual custom to have Steamboat as part of the Reunion Dinner because the steamboat pot, which is traditionally round in shape, represents “reunion” (tuán yuán) in Chinese.

a visual of Lo Hei

Lo Hei

Lo hei (Cantonese for ‘tossing up’) refers to the tossing of yú shēng, a dish comprising thinly sliced raw fish, vegetables, spices and condiments. This annual communal activity symbolises togetherness and well wishes in the coming year.

Fish

Fish is traditionally served at family reunion dinners as the Chinese pronunciation for “fish”(yú) is the same as ‘abundance’. The fish should be served whole – the head and tail signifies a beginning and an end and thus represents completeness.

a visual of the pineapple tarts

Pineapple Tarts

Pineapples are believed to be auspicious as their name in the widely-used Hokkien dialect is “ong lai”, meaning 'incoming fortune'. Pineapple tarts are often served to guests during Chinese New Year visiting.

Red Packets

Red packets symbolise good luck and are gifted at social and family gatherings during Chinese New Year.

We collaborate with community partners such as the Citizens’ Consultative Committees of Geylang Serai, Kembangan-Chai Chee, Marine Parade, and Kreta Ayer-Kim Seng, as well as the Little India Shopkeepers and Heritage Association, and the NDP Organising Committee annually to bring festive celebrations into our public transport network.

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.
