Morning pre-peak fares

Travel Early, Pay Less

Commuters who travel early can expect to save on their fares. PTC introduced the Morning Pre-Peak Fares which allow commuters to enjoy up to 50-cent* savings when they tap-in before 7.45am at any rail station island-wide on weekdays (except Public Holidays). This scheme was introduced since 29 December 2017 to encourage more commuters to travel before the morning peak hours. 

 

* The discount quantum is $0.50 or the fare for the train journey of the trip, whichever is lower
