TRAVEL SMART REWARDS
Travel Smart Rewards (TSR) is modelled after the Incentives for Singapore Commuters (INSINC) pilot. Participants can earn points proportional to the distance they travel on the rail system, with extra points for travel during de-congesting hours.

Points are earned based on the start times of commuters’ trips at the MRT and LRT stations and the distance of their journeys on the rail system. These will be tracked through commuters’ transit cards. Trips which are made during the periods of 6.15am – 7.15am or 8.45am – 9.45am on weekdays are considered decongesting trips. You can earn credits to win cash rewards for the trips you make on the MRT and LRT, with triple credits for the morning off-peak trips.
Commuters who make decongesting trips each week are rewarded more. Based on the number of decongesting trips they make, a commuter is classified as either: Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum. Membership status is adjusted on a weekly basis, on Fridays, depending on the previous seven days’ travel patterns. The higher a commuter’s membership status, the more points and hence chances he or she has of winning attractive prizes. Commuters can stand to win monetary prizes of $1, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100 and $200 as well as a monthly lucky draw prize of $1,500.
The scheme ensures that a commuter who only makes peak trips will earn fewer points, compared to a commuter who makes decongesting trips. In addition, commuters who make decongesting trips would achieve higher membership status where the payoff, in terms of points or cash, is higher.
