The Land Transport Authority has announced that the entire Downtown Line will be free to ride on 21 and 22 October to mark he opening of DTL3.
DTL3, which stretches 21KM, is the longest route for the DTL. It’s 16 new stations include Fort Canning, Bencoolen, Jalan Besar, Ubi, Bedok Reservoir, Tampines West, Tampines, Tampines East and Upper Changi.
Passengers going for the free rides will still need to tap in and out of the fare gates. Those transferring to other lines will also get to travel for free on the Downtown Line leg of the journey. All they have to do is to remember to tap out at the interchange station, then back in again, LTA explained.
