No more sneaking around. It's official.

The new year is just round the corner and it's about time we stopped sneaking around, pun intended. We would like to thank everyone who sent in their feedback, telling us what you thought about sneak and how we could improve it. After squashing tonnes of bugs and making numerous improvements, we're now ready to unveil sneak as the new gothere.sg.


For those who missed our first post introducing the new gothere.sg, the goal of this redesign is really to make it easier for you to find the things you want, and to improve the experience of browsing and searching for anything in Singapore.


We have since gotten lots of suggestions and feedback, and have made a few improvements to sneak over the past few weeks:
Apart from tweaking our search algorithms and fixing bugs, we've also included a few new things for gothere.sg.

Carpark entrances and rates


Carpark roads in HDB estates have made it into our maps, so you'll be getting more accurate driving directions, down to the entrance of the carpark. More commercial carpark entrances around the island have also been included.


To make things even better, we'll list up to 5 carparks near your destination. You can check the rates and choose which carpark you'd like to park at.


Expressway entrances in directions

Have you ever taken the wrong turn to PIE (Tuas) when you were supposed to head east to PIE (Changi Airport)? We've added expressway entrances into our directions so you won't be making the wrong turn again.



Real-time information in tool tips



When you hover your mouse over the bus stops, carparks, ERP icons and more, you'll get tidbits of real-time information in a tool tip. This is especially useful for carparks and ERP gantries as you'll be seeing the current rates and charges.




Search for bus stops

You can now search for bus stops with their 5-digit bus stop numbers.


Embed and current location

Existing features on gothere.sg which were not present in sneak have been added in as well. You can now get your current location (on Mozilla Firefox) and also share our maps by embedding them on your website.


We love the new gothere.sg and we hope you do as well. The older version is still available for now if you're reluctant to switch.

We'd like to thank each and every one of you who have contributed feedback and suggestions. It has been immensely helpful. That's all folks, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
