Early risers who have been enjoying free travel to the 18 designated MRT stations before 7:45am will continue to enjoy free fares for another year (till June 23, 2015). Those who tap out between 7:45am and 8am will also continue to get a 50 cent discount to these 18 stations. And to really help encourage you to shift your morning commute, for the next 3 Fridays (May 16, 23, & 30), Ya Kun Kaya Toast will be giving out free breakfast vouchers worth $4.60 at these designated MRT stations until 7:45:
- 16 May 2014: Bugis, Orchard, & Tanjong Pagar
- 23 May 2014: Lavender, Raffles Place, & Somerset
- 30 May 2014: Chinatown, City Hall, & Dhoby Ghaut
According to the LTA, this free travel scheme, which began nearly a year ago, has accounted for a 7% shift to pre-peak hours for commuters. The LTA hopes that as more employers offer flexible working arrangements, this percentage will increase.
The 18 designated stations are:
- Bras Basah
- City Hall
- Clarke Quay
- Dhoby Ghaut
- Marina Bay
- Outram Park
- Raffles Place
- Tanjong Pagar
- Telok Ayer.
