Less time commuting and more time for the things that matter

Get there quicker - the arrival of DTL2 from Bukit Panjang to Rochor in Dec 2015 will reduce travelling time to the city by a third. A journey from Bukit Panjang to Bugis today can take about 50 minutes. With DTL, it will take about 30 minutes.

More Trains, More Capacity, More Often

More Trains, More Capacity, More Often

Brand new trains with a bigger carrying capacity will ply the Downtown Line with greater frequency and carry over half a million passengers a day!

Bigger and better trains also mean ample carriage space and a more comfortable journey for commuters. The new trains will have perch seats in the gangway area instead of two-seaters and there are even extra wheelchair spaces in the centre of the car for greater accessibility.
