New Transfer Rules

The new transfer rules implemented will allow passengers to transfer between two different train stations within 15 minutes, or by taking bus trip(s) between two different train stations without incurring additional boarding charge.

The time limit for valid transfers between bus and bus, and bus and train will remain at 45 minutes. The last tap in must be within 2 hours from the time of the first tap in.

For example, Adam and Brenda are going back to their homes in Singapore after a shopping trip in Johor Bahru. Adam decided to accompany Brenda back to her home at Yishun, before going back to his home at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10.

They took the cross-border bus service 950 from Johor Bahru Checkpoint to Marsiling MRT, and transfer to the North South Line to Yishun, followed by feeder bus 807 to Brenda's house at Yishun Ring Road. Thereafter, he will continue his journey on bus service 860 to Khatib MRT to take the North South Line to Ang Mo Kio, and finally a feeder bus 261 to Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10.

With the new transfer rules, Adam does not have to pay for a second journey from Khatib to his home due to multiple train rides. Even though his total journey time exceeded 2 hours, he tapped in on his last ride on feeder bus 261 five minutes before the time limit at 2255hrs, which meant that he completed this journey within 5 transfers (or 6 rides) and did not incur additional cost on a "New Ride".
