Default Free MRT ride before 7.45am

Got this from CNA.

JUST IN: Commuters travelling into the city area before 7.45am can ride the MRT for free from June 24 this year. To qualify for this they will have to exit at the following 16 MRT stations: Bugis, Chinatown, City Hall, Clarke Quay, Dhoby Ghaut, Lavender, Orchard, Outram Park, Raffles Place, Somerset, Tanjong Pagar, Bayfront, Bras Basah, Esplanade, Marina Bay, and Promenade.


sorry (7.45am not 7.30)

Mod please help change it. Thanks

This is to ease congestion in the public transport system. Employers are also encouraged to offer flexi hours to complement this.

Don't understand some of the replies here. It is not peak hour that's why the free rides are offered what... To encourage people who usually travel during peak hour to travel during off peak hours, so that it isn't so crowded during peak hours.
