Since 3 July 2010, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) and Public Transport Council (PTC) had launched the new fare collection model - Distance-Based Fare (DBF). This means that the fares payable are based on the total distance traveled, hence benefiting transferring commuters.

Fare Calculation

When a combination of fare structure was involved in a calculation, such as Feeder Bus Service --> MRT, the approaches that the LTA and PTC uses are calculation from the expensive fare structures FIRST.

Rail Only

As there are many way(s) a commuters may choose to travel when in the train network, the approaches that the LTA and PTC uses are based on the shortest journey distance, irregardless of the time taken between route alternative.

Bus Only

For example, assuming an adult commuter who pay by card fare, board Feeder 911 from Woodlands Centre Rd (Bus Stop 46069) to Woodlands Reg Int, transfer and board Feeder 912 from Woodlands Reg Int to Woodlands Dr 50 (Bus Stop 46661). The following will be a breakdown on how the fare is calculated.

Journey Legs Distance Accumulated
Distance
Fare
Bus (Feeder 911) 2.7 km 2.7 km $0.77
Bus (Feeder 912) 1.4 km 4.1 km $0.10
($0.87-$0.77)
Total $0.87

In this example, even though both bus services that the commuter boarded were Feeder Services, the fares are charged based on Distance Fare for Basic/Trunk Service, limiting at 3.2 km per journey leg.

Bus and Rail

For example, assuming an adult commuter who pay by card fare, board Feeder Service 293 from Tampines St 45 (Bus Stop 76279) to Tampines Int, transfer and board the train from Tampines (EWL) to Bayfront (CCL/DTL). The following will be a breakdown of how the fare is calculated.

Journey Legs Distance Accumulated
Distance
Fare
Train (Tampines - BayFront, CCL) 16.5 km 16.5 km $1.61
Bus (Service 293) 3.6 km 20.1 km
(Calculated based on 19.7 km)
$0.11
($1.72-$1.61)
Total $1.72
