I am actually looking forward to that. :oops:
Isnt that the point, to incentivize people to use the train earlier so the the peak hour crowds will be reduced? Not all can or will change the time of travel but hopefully a chunk will do.

Free rides only if you alight before 7.45am. 50 cents discount if you alight between 7.45am and 8am.

The free travel trial will be implemented in 16 stations where commuters alight, including City Hall, Raffles Place and the Clarke Quay.

Where got people start work so early in this area.

How about Jurong area any free ?

It is meant to encourage some people to travel earlier so as to ease the load during peak
