SINGAPORE: To encourage more commuters to take up off—peak travel on MRT trains, an incentive given out as part of an INSINC study has been doubled from November 1.
Incentives for Singapore’s Commuters (INSINC) is a web—based study comprising a reward system where commuters earn credits based on the start times of their trips at MRT stations and the distance of their journeys.
The maximum cash prize for INSINC participants has been doubled from $100 to $200, and can be transferred directly to participants’ bank accounts, if they choose to. Previously, cash rewards were credited into participants’ EZ—Link cards.
Since January, more than $320,000 have been paid out.
In addition, more credits per kilometre are being given to participants, depending on the number of off—peak trips they make. Participants can get up to six credits per kilometre. Previously, all participants earned three credits per trip.
Also, the number of participants in INSINC have more than doubled, from 17,000 in June to 41,000 to date.
The Land Transport Authority said it hopes the study can eventually cover up to 60,000 commuters.
