WeHaveMoved1

This article covers both the Chinatown Chinese New Year Official Light-Up and Opening Ceremony (Sat, 16 Jan 2016) and the Chinese New Year Countdown Celebrations (Sun, 7 Feb 2016).

On Sat, 16 Jan 2016, the operating hours of train services will be extended for the Chinatown Chinese New Year Light Up and Opening Ceremony. Multiple bus services will be diverted due to road closures along Eu Tong Sen Street and New Bridge Road.

On Chinese / Lunar New Year’s Eve (7 Feb 2015), there will be changes in the operating hours of selected bus services. Peak hour bus services will operate return trips in the early afternoon (instead of the evening), and night services will extend their operating hours, along with selected trunk services.
