…by 50 cents to $3.50 regardless of cash or ez-link. The free transfer (to be made within 45 minutes from alighting the previous NR bus) applicable for ez-link card users will still remain.

This is the first such fare increase for SMRT’s night bus services since introduction years ago. Though steep, the increase seems timely in the face of high fuel prices, yet still affordable compared to the more expensive taxi. Enhances such as the much needed extension to HarbourFront for NR1 and NR6 also somewhat justifies the increase.

Those who want a cheaper alternative can consider rival SBS Transit’s Nite Owl services priced at $2.50 (ez-link) and $3.00 (cash) respectively. That is, if there is one that gets you back home.
