Enjoy free travel on the entire Downtown Line (DTL) on 21 and 22 Oct!!
The newest addition to Singapore’s rail network, the Downtown Line 3 (DTL3), will open on 21 October 2017 (Saturday).
To celebrate this milestone and encourage commuters to explore the DTL3, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) is offering commuters free travel for journeys between ALL stations of the Downtown Line (DTL) on 21 and 22 October 2017.
Free Travel for All on Downtown Line
Passengers starting and ending their journeys at any of the 34 DTL stations, i.e. along DTL1, 2 and 3, will enjoy free travel on 21 and 22 October 2017.
Passengers will still tap in and tap out as per normal at any fare gate, but no fare will be deducted.
Arrangements for Transfers at DTL Interchange Stations
Commuters transferring to or from another line at most interchange stations (Bugis and Expo stations on the East-West Line; Chinatown and Little India stations on the North East Line; and Bayfront, Botanic Gardens, MacPherson and Promenade stations on the Circle Line) can tap out and then in again, to enjoy free travel for the DTL leg.
Dedicated Fare Gates for Transfer Passengers at Bukit Panjang, Newton and Tampines Stations
Special arrangements have been made for passengers transferring at Bukit Panjang, Newton and Tampines stations, which differ from regular interchange stations, as passengers have to pass through a public area outside the fare gates to change lines.
When transferring between lines, commuters can use any fare gate to tap out but should use the dedicated fare gates to tap in so as to enjoy free travel on DTL. There will be signage and posters at these three stations to direct commuters. Commuters who need further assistance can also approach station staff who will be deployed at interchange stations to assist commuters (please see Annex for details).
Get up close with celebrities
