The Government is committed to improve the mobility for all Singaporeans with a significant expansion of our rail network. We will double our rail network from the current 178 km to about 360 km by 2030, which is more than Tokyo or Hong Kong, and comparable to New York City. In addition to the upcoming completion of the Downtown Line, Tuas West Extension, Thomson Line and Eastern Region Line, we will build two new lines – Cross Island Line and Jurong Region Line, as well as extensions to the North East Line, Circle Line and Downtown Line. With these new lines and extensions, we will strengthen the resilience of our rail network and ensure that about 8 in 10 households will be within a 10-minute walk of a train station.We are also investing in bus service improvements. To improve the reliability of bus services, we need to give buses more priority on the roads through measures like full day bus lanes. We have and will continue to extend the coverage of the bus lane network, and will study other measures to give buses more priority on the roads.As part of improving public transport services, LTA is working to provide better travel information to help commuters plan their journeys and manage their time better. Apart from panels with bus service information at all 3,000 bus-stops islandwide, LTA is also conducting trials for provision of real-time bus arrival information at bus shelters and key bus services maps at selected bus-stops along Orchard Road. To provide commuters with more choices, the PTC has introduced the Premium Bus services scheme which will provide commuters who are prepared to pay a higher fare for a superior level of service with the option of having a more direct and comfortable journey. Lastly, to improve the accessibility to our public transport nodes, LTA is putting in facilities such as covered linkways and lifts at pedestrian overhead bridges over the next 5 years to enhance connectivity of our transport network to surrounding developments. To cater to less mobile commuters, our MRT stations have been upgraded with lifts and other barrier-free facilities.
