SBS Transit to add 40 more trips on NEL during weekday morning peak hours

SBS Transit has announced that it will be adding 40 more trips a week to the North East Line during the weekday morning peak hours to cater to growing demand for rail services which will commence from Tuesday (3 January 2017).

SBS said that from Mondays to Fridays (excluding public holidays), 7.30am to 9.30am, 30 trains will be in service to improve capacity and frequency with eight new trips added per day.

It also said that with the addition of a new train to the schedule, this will improve the waiting time with trains arriving at between 2.25 minutes and 3.2 minutes instead of between 2.5 minutes and 3.2 minutes currently.

“We will continue to monitor travel demand on the North East Line and will add more trips when required,” it said.
