Free bus, train services on National Day

SINGAPORE - Commuters can enjoy free travel on board buses and train services on National Day.

The free travel offered on Singapore's 50th birthday is to encourage people to attend National Day celebrations island-wide, said the two public transport operators (PTO) in a media release on Monday.

Free travel will take effect on Aug 9 from the start of service to the end of operation.

SBS Transit and SMRT trunk and feeder bus services, SMRT's Night Rider and all SBS Transit's non basic services such as Parks, Chinatown Direct and Night Owl bus services will also be part of this free travel.

Fare gates leading to train services run by SMRT and SBS Transit will be opened on National Day to allow people to board trains on multiple train lines for free.

Mr Desmond Kuek, President and Group Chief Executive Officer, SMRT Corporation said: "We hope that this will add to the celebratory atmosphere and encourage everyone to get out of the house to celebrate as one united people. "
