Travel Early, Travel Free,
Travel on the MRT
Good news! Free early morning MRT rides to 18 designated MRT stations* in the city area before 7.45am on weekdays (excluding public holidays) has been extended till 31 December 2017.
For those who miss the cut-off timing for free travel by a few minutes, you can still enjoy 50 cents off your train fare if you exit at any of the 18 stations* between 7.45am and 8.00am on weekdays (excluding public holidays).
To be eligible for free MRT rides or $0.50 off train fare, the point of entry cannot be from any of the 18 stations. The 18 designated stations are:
*Bayfront, Bras Basah, Bugis, Chinatown, City Hall, Clarke Quay, Dhoby Ghaut, Downtown, Esplanade, Lavender, Marina Bay, Orchard, Outram Park, Promenade, Raffles Place, Somerset, Tanjong Pagar and Telok Ayer.
The enhanced Travel Smart Rewards (TSR) scheme comes with new features customised to individual commuters to encourage them to travel off-peak. First launched in 2012 and modelled after the Incentives for Singapore’s Commuters (INSINC) pilot, the New TSR incentivises and encourages commuters to shift their travel patterns and move out of the peak travel periods while earning points and cash rewards at the same time.
One of the new exciting features of the New TSR is the personalised travel planner. The personalised travel planner analyses commuters’ individual travel patterns and recommends a customised Travel Plan for each commuter. Selected commuters who shift their travel patterns according to the Travel Plan will earn cash rewards for every eligible trip. In addition to the cash rewards, commuters will continue to accumulate points for every trip that they make on the rail network during their weekday commute.
Users can also look forward to a new interactive game, “The Ride One”, where they can earn up to $200 cash rewards. More interactive games will be introduced gradually in the coming months. All users will be entitled to participate in the monthly lucky draws, so the more train trips made, the greater the chances of winning the top prize of $1,500.
