Free Travel on Downtown Line 2 Preview on 5 Dec

Ahead of its official opening on 27 Dec 2015, the public will get a preview of Downtown Line 2 (DTL2) on 5 Dec 2015. Commuters will be able to travel on DTL2 for free that day from 10am to 6pm. They will also get to check out station layouts and the surrounding amenities of the 12 new stations. 

To encourage more commuters to try out the DTL2, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) will offer free travel on the entire Downtown Line from 27 Dec 2015 to 1 Jan 2016. It said commuters need only start and end their journey at any of the 18 DTL stations to enjoy the free commute.

Travel time is expected to be cut by up to 40 per cent with the new line. LTA also said that 27 Dec will see the reduction of bus and train fares. The adjustment, which takes into account last year's drop in energy prices, will see fares cut by up to 4 cents per journey.
