NSmen enjoy free rides on public transport as part of NS50 Free Travel Day

SINGAPORE - Full-time national serviceman (NSF) Jay Leong, 22, did not have to tap his ez-link card at Bukit Panjang MRT while wearing his uniform on Friday (June 30). Instead, he breezed through a side gate at the gantry opened by staff. He was one of many national servicemen (NSmen) who got free rides as part of NS50 Free Travel Day, a move by transport companies SMRT, SBS Transit, Tower Transit and Go-Ahead Singapore to thank NSmen for their contributions. All NSFs, operationally ready NSmen as well as former NSmen who wear their service uniform are eligible for the free travel. Mr Leong, who was travelling to his camp in Pasir Ris, said the free travel programme was a good way to give NSmen recognition. "It's good to know that there are people who acknowledge the hard work that NSmen put in." Get The Straits Times newsletters in your inbox Sign Up Senior station manage...
