SINGAPORE: SBS Transit will be adding 492 more trips per week to the Sengkang and Punggol LRT systems to cater to the increase in ridership demand.

These will be implemented from Monday, August 8, resulting in shorter waiting times and enhanced travel capacity for commuters.

On the Sengkang West Loop, 34 more trips will be added daily during the weekday peak hours.

In the mornings, between 6.45am and 8.45am, 16 more trips will be operated which will reduce waiting time from the current four minutes to about three minutes.

During the evening peak hours from 6.15pm to 8.30pm, 18 new trips will be added and commuters will find their waiting time reduced to four minutes.

Even the off-peak hours will see shorter waiting time with the addition of 33 new trips per weekday.

On weekends, a total of 47 new trips will be operated throughout the day from 10am to 11pm.

This means 20 extra trips on Saturdays and 27 new trips on Sundays and public holidays.

On the Sengkang East Loop, 12 more new trips will be added a day during the evening peak hours which will reduce waiting time to three minutes, down from the current four minutes.

Similarly, over at the Punggol East Loop, 10 new trips will be operated daily during the morning peak hours to enhance capacity.
