MRT fares going down in December, Circle Line getting more trains

If train delays, bus breakdowns and rising transport fares have sent your blood pressure on an upward spiral, grouse no more. Or at least grouse a bit less. Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew announced on Aug 3 that the costs of traveling on public buses and trains are to be reduced by up to 1.9% this December, because of lowered fuel prices. 

Plus, the Land Transport Authority are looking into shorter train intervals on the Circle Line by introducing another 24 new trains, which is said to increase passenger intake by 60%. 

Finally, it seems like commuting by public transport might be a (slightly) less stressful affair.
