Extra train to help with noon hour rush

Posted by jtsmyth8 on May 20, 2008

Lunchtime commuters got some respite from the daily crush at train stations on Tuesday.

With the additional 360 trips SMRT started rolling out at weekday from noon to 2pm, they could also get to their lunch destinations in a shorter time.

The extra trips during lunch form the bulk of the 700 trips which will be added by June 21.

Bank officer Gerard Sim, 26, who was taking the train from Raffles Place to Bugis for an appointment said he was pleasantly surprised at the quick succession of trains .

‘With the limited lunch hours we have, it is good to reduce the time we spend on travelling,’ he said. (story)
