As you know, LTA has started an one-year trial (funded by government) from 24 June 2013 to provide FOC travel on rail into the city area before 7.45 am on weekdays at 16 designated MRT stations in the city area**. In addition, commuters who exit at these stations between 7.45 am and 8 am will be given a discount of up to 50 cents off their train fare. Through this trial, government hopes to alleviate the morning peak hour crowding situation by spread out the morning peak hour crowds to the pre-peak period,
*Commuters must exit at any of the 16 designated stations in the city area by 7.45 am on Mondays to Fridays (excluding public holidays). The train journey must not begin at any of these 16 designated stations. The 16 designated stations are Bugis, Chinatown, City Hall, Clarke Quay, Dhoby Ghaut, Lavender, Orchard, Outram Park, Raffles Place, Somerset, Tanjong Pagar, Bayfront, Bras Basah, Esplanade, Marina Bay and Promenade.
