Free MRT travel for early birds

SINGAPORE: Authorities in Singapore have announced perks to encourage pre-peak hour travel by MRT.

Commuters who end their journeys at 16 designated MRT stations in the city area before 7.45am on weekdays will enjoy free travel.

Those that exit between 7.45am and 8am will be given a discount of up to 50 cents.

This one year trial by the Land Transport Authority will begin on June 24 and will be funded by the government.

The objective of the trial is to encourage commuters to travel early and spread out peak hour crowds. - TODAY
