If you are a regular commuter on Singapore’s Transport System – the MRT and LRT and you think you can make a difference (contributing less to the congestion) by traveling during non-peak time period, at the same time, get some incentives out from it, then take a look at this new Program – Insinc.
What You Need To Know About Insinc
This is as quoted from the Insinc Site…
Working with Singapore’s Land Transport Authority, researchers from Stanford University and the National University of Singapore are launching Insinc in 2012 to study the effects of incentives and social interaction on public transit commuting.
Insinc encourages participants to shift their commute schedules on the Singapore rail system away from overcrowded peak times. The more commuters participate in Insinc, the more opportunities they will have to receive random rewards. Insinc aims to reduce crowded trains by distributing the load, resulting in a more efficient use of Singapore’s transportation resources — a win-win for commuters and for the environment!
