Distance Fares

Fares are calculated based on the distance, which brings about a more integrated fare structure that allows commuters to make transfers without incurring additional costs. Distance Fares are computed on a journey basis, without a boarding charge being imposed for every transfer trip that makes up the journey.

 

Transfer Rules

A transfer can be from:

  • MRT/LRT to a bus service
  • MRT/LRT to another MRT/LRT
  • a bus service to another bus service
  • a bus service to MRT/LRT

To enjoy Distance Fares:

  • Pay with the same stored value fare card.
  • You may make up to five transfers within a single journey.
  • You can only take up to 2 hours to complete your journey.
  • Current bus service must not be the same number as the preceding bus service.
  • Multiple rail transfers are allowed with no additional boarding charges.
  • Up to 45-minute is allowed for each transfer between rail and bus services, or between different bus services.
  • A maximum of 15 minutes is allowed for transfers between different rail stations.
  • No exit and re-entry at the same station.
    • For Newton, Tampines and Bukit Panjang Stations, you will have to tap out and in within 15 minutes to make a transfer to the other line without incurring a new boarding charge.

To calculate distance fare, please access the LTA's online fare calculator here.
