Minor ERP tweak

It's been announced that there are minor ERP rate tweaks effective 29th Sept for the 5 "Intra CBD" gantries.

In a nutshell, the 5 gantries along Fullerton Road, Esplanade Drive, South Bridge Road, Eu Tong Sen Street and New Bridge Road will see the tolls halved from 6pm to 730pm, and it's free after 730pm, earlier than the previous 8pm.

For details, click on the "ERP" icon found on the maps and you'd be able to find out more.

Guess people at Raffles Place can pop over to the Marina area earlier now to do some shopping and grab dinner.

Hungry go where? Go there!

What's a nice dessert place near Bukit Timah? What about a Japanese restaurant around Novena? These are questions that I often get from my friends. Wouldn't it be great if we can obtain these information easily? Well, now there is! We have teamed up with the fantastic people behind HungryGoWhere to include their database of restaurants and eateries in our search results. Looking for cool places to eat will be a problem of the past.

For example, with a single search, you can source for korean food around city hall, pick your favourite one (with a generous credit card discount), check out the reviews at HungryGoWhere, and get travel directions.

You can help others by leaving a comment or rating on the place after your visit. Anyone can leave a comment! There's no need to sign up or login.

As always, we are looking to make this better for you. If you have a suggestion or complaint, don't hesitate to drop us a note at!

Are you among the lucky 43% after the fare adjustments?

As reported in the press, there will be a change in the fares for bus and train journeys from the 1st of October.

We see numbers and percentages being thrown around in the press without really knowing if we're being adversely affected by the latest changes. It turned out to be something that we can easily fix!

Instead of guessing if there will be an increase or decrease in the fares of a trip, we've decided to display both the current fare as well as the new fare. The new fare is displayed after the current one in a smaller font.

Now you can check and find out if you are one of the lucky 43% of commuters who will see no change or a reduction in your weekly public transport expenditure, or one of the 21% who will see an average increase of 18 cents per week, or worse still, one of the unfortunate 36% who will see an average increase of 23 cents per week.
