Update: New Circle Line Stations and NTU Shuttle Services

Here are 2 new updates to our maps that we'd like to share with you today.

Circle Line Phase 2: Dhoby Ghaut to Bartley


With the 11 new stations connecting Dhoby Ghaut and Bartley, the Circle Line (CCL) is starting to take shape, helping to make train commuting in Singapore faster and more convenient. Explore the 11 new CCL stations on our maps - Dhoby GhautBras Basah, Esplanade, Promenade, Nicoll Highway, Stadium, Mountbatten, Dakota, Paya Lebar, MacPherson and Tai Seng.

CNA reported that travelling between the north and eastern parts of Singapore is now much more convenient, with travel times taking up to less than half of what they used to on certain routes. It seems like a no-brainer, but we decided to do some simple comparisons anyway.

For a commuter travelling between Bishan and Paya Lebar, here's how the picture looked like before April 16.


The entire commute took 38 minutes, including approximately 8 minutes of estimated transfer and train waiting times.

Here's how the journey looks like with the new CCL stations.


Bishan and Paya Lebar are now only 6 stations apart, and the travelling time is expected to be about 20 minutes, including approximately 4 minutes of waiting time, and 0 transfers.

Now, compare this with driving from Bishan to Paya Lebar say around 8am in the morning. The CTE and PIE are bound to be congested and there's also an ERP charge of $2.00 each time you pass by the CTE after Braddell Road. If you haven't considered taking the train as your primary mode of transport to work, maybe you should now!


Campus Buzz Part 2: NTU Shuttle Services

Since our last update introducing NUS maps on gothere.sg, we've had plenty of NTU students asking if we could include maps of their school on our website. Well, we've been hard at work updating the maps around Boon Lay, and today we're happy to reveal detailed maps for NTU's Yunnan Garden campus on gothere.sg!


You will be able to search for locations like lecture theatres (e.g. NTU LT23), and also find directions via the university's campus shuttle bus service between places (e.g. NTU LT23 to NIE). We think it's pretty cool that directions on gothere.sg now make use of both campus shuttle services in NTU and NUS. :) Oh, and we're also working with the fine folks of NTU on something exciting, so do stay tuned for more news on this.

We hope you find these updates useful - happy commuting!

    Thanks for the updates! You guys had been quiet for a real long while.

    By the way, Pioneer shuttle is NTU-D, not NTU-P, and the links on NTU-A/B/C/P points to NUS bus website... should be this.
