Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games Transport Guide
1     Basic Information
1.1     Introduction
The Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games Transport Guide provides
information on transport matters for all accredited clients of the Singapore
2010 Youth Olympic Games (Singapore 2010). They include Young
Olympians, Team Officials, International Olympic Committee (IOC) officials
and guests, National Olympic Committee (NOC) officials and guests,
International Federation (IF) representatives and guests and the media1. This
guide also includes information on Singapore’s public transport system.

The Singapore 2010 transport operations are executed through an
integrated transport system, employing common shuttle services, pre-
planned transport services and public transport, complemented by pooled
vehicle services. Operations are supported by the employment of Youth
Olympic Lanes.

Common shuttle services are bus services used to transport all Singapore
2010 accredited client groups between Singapore 2010 venues. Each
common shuttle vehicle may contain a mix of clients.

Most of the common shuttle services will originate from two transport malls,
which function in a similar manner to public bus interchanges. These are the
Youth Olympic Village Transport Mall (YTM) and the City Transport Mall
(CTM).

As the name suggests, the YTM is located within the Youth Olympic Village
(YOV) to serve mainly Young Olympians and Team Officials; it operates from
10 to 28 Aug 2010. The CTM, on the other hand, operates from 6 to 28 Aug
2010 and is co-located with the Main Media Centre (MMC) to serve the media
and clients residing at the IOC/Youth Olympic Games (YOG) hotels.

Pre-planned transport services are used to meet transport requirements for
certain activities with predetermined schedules between designated points at
a designated time. They operate on a pre-planned basis. These include
airport transfers and movement of teams competing in team sports from the
YOV to competition/training venues. In general, buses will be used for pre-
planned transport services. However, depending on needs, cars may be
assigned if it is deemed as a more cost-effective solution.

Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games Transport Guide
Pooled vehicle services are meant for clients with security or operational
requirements that cannot be met by other transport services. This service
provides transportation on demand by car, limousine taxi or minibus
between Singapore 2010 venues only.

16   Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games Transport Guide

present their YOIAC. For ticketed events, spectators must present their
tickets to use this service.

MRT shuttles (spectator shuttles) operate at a frequency of 30 minutes. Each
MRT shuttle (spectator shuttle) service only operates on days when there is a

2.2     Pre-planned Transport Services
2.2.1   Introduction
Pre-planned transport services are meant to meet transport requirements for

show their YOIAC to use these services.

2.2.2   Arrival and Departure
Pre-planned transport services are provided to transport all accredited clients

YOV Welcome Centre and the IOC/YOG hotels. Similarly, pre-planned
transport services will be arranged for departure. These services will be
available from 5 to 28 Aug 2010.

Clients who have to deviate from their arrival/departure schedule or did not
provide their flight details to the Singapore Youth Olympic Games Organising
Committee (SYOGOC) in advance should proceed to the nearest transport
desk at Changi Airport upon arrival to arrange for transport. Transport desks
                                                                               19

 coach bays of the three main airport terminals and at the VIP Complex.

 Accredited clients staying in the YOV should confirm their departure plans at
 the NOC Services Centre at least 72 hours in advance through their CdM or
 the relevant proxy card holder. Clients staying at the IOC/YOG hotels should
 confirm their departure plans at the transport desk at their hotel or through
 Liaison Officers/NOC Assistants (where applicable) at least 72 hours in
 advance. Amendments or cancellations should be made before 15:00 hours
 the day before the scheduled journey, and are subject to vehicle availability.

2.3     Pooled Vehicle Services
2.3.1   Introduction
Pooled vehicle services are on-demand transport services for clients whose
security or operational requirements cannot be met by other transport
services. Available daily between 10 and 28 Aug 2010 from 07:00 up to
23:00 hours, these services are only available to transport pass holders.

2.3.2   Transport Passes
Client groups are each allocated a number of transport passes. For National
Olympic Committees (NOCs), the transport passes will be managed by the
CdM. Transport passes are transferable within each NOC or client group, but
not between different NOCs or client groups. Lost transport passes will not
be replaced.

The following illustrations show the different transport passes for each client
group, indicated accordingly at the top right hand corner of the pass.




2.3.3   Booking of Pooled Vehicles
Each transport pass holder is entitled to the use of one pooled vehicle. This
vehicle may be shared by up to four passengers, one of whom must be the
                                                                             23

Pooled vehicles can only travel between official Singapore 2010 venues 7 .
These include competition and training venues, CEP venues and IOC/YOG
hotels. The maximum waiting time is 30 minutes from the time the pooled
vehicle is activated. Advance booking of pooled vehicles is not available.

Youth Olympic Lanes are marked along certain sections of Singapore
expressways and major arterial roads. All motorists may travel on these
lanes, but must give way to vehicles dressed in the official Singapore 2010
livery.

Youth Olympic Lanes are identifiable by road markings shown below:




On Youth Olympic Lanes only, all motorists, including Singapore 2010
accredited clients driving rented vehicles, must give way to vehicles dressed

3        Alternative Means of Transport
3.1       Singapore’s Public Transport System
3.1.1       Introduction
Transportation within Singapore is mainly by land. A public transport system
comprising the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) network and a comprehensive
network of public bus services provides easy access to all sport and non-
sport venues during Games Time. Most of the competition venues are
accessible by MRT, while the others are accessible by public bus.

Public bus services in Singapore are operated by two major bus companies –
SBS Transit (www,sbstransit.com.sg) and SMRT Buses (www.smrtcorp.com).
More information about Singapore’s public transport system, including a link
to   a   public    transport   journey    planner,   can   be    found    at
www.publictransport.sg, a website under the Land Transport Authority (LTA).


Public transport in Singapore is represented by the following symbol:




26    Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games Transport Guide
3.1.2   Mass Rapid Transit (MRT)/Light Rail Transit (LRT) System




The MRT system forms the backbone of Singapore’s public transport system,
spanning the entire city-state. Comprising 70 stations, the MRT system
operates from approximately 05:30 hours daily, to 01:00 hours the next day.
The maximum waiting time for an MRT train is 8 minutes. There are
currently four MRT lines in operation: North South Line, East West Line, North
East Line and Circle Line. The MRT system is also complemented by three
Light Rail Transit (LRT) lines which serve mainly residential estates.

All MRT/LRT station signs display the public transport symbol in addition to
the appropriate MRT/LRT icon shown above.

Singapore 2010 accredited clients may enjoy unlimited complimentary
MRT/LRT rides daily using their Prepaid Cards (see Section 3.2) within the
validity period. The card is to be tapped on the readers at fare gates when
accessing the trains. When in doubt, clients are advised to enquire at the
Station Control Room.

Below is an overview of the MRT/LRT system in Singapore. Part of the Circle
Line represented by a dotted line is undergoing construction.




                                                                            27
28   Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games Transport Guide
3.1.3   Public Buses




Public bus services are the most comprehensive and affordable means of
public transportation, with over 300 bus services covering all parts of
Singapore. Public buses call at bus stops located on the left side of the road,
as well as at bus interchanges typically located near MRT stations.

Singapore 2010 accredited clients enjoy complimentary travel on public
buses with their Prepaid Cards (see Section 3.2) within the validity period.
The card is to be tapped on the readers near the doors when boarding and
alighting from the buses. When in doubt, clients are advised to enquire with
the bus driver.

Most bus services run from approximately 06:00 to 23:30 hours. NightRider
services under SMRT Buses operate on Friday and Saturday nights and the
eve of public holidays from approximately 23:30 to 04:30 hours the next day.
Nite Owl services under SBS Transit operate on Friday and Saturday nights
and the eve of public holidays from approximately midnight to 02:00 hours.
Operating hours may vary for different bus services.

3.1.4   Public Taxi Services




Over 15,000 air-conditioned public taxis ply Singapore roads. They can be
flagged down 24 hours a day on most roads, with well-marked taxi stands
available outside most major shopping centres and hotels. Public taxi
bookings, including advance bookings, may be made by calling 6-DIAL-CAB
(6-3425-222), which will automatically direct callers to the first available taxi
company.

Please note that public taxi services are not available free-of-charge as other
forms of public transportation like buses and the MRT provide adequate
access to all Singapore 2010 venues and most locations in Singapore.
Payment for taxi rides is usually by cash; other modes of payment such as
                                                                               29
credit card may be accepted, depending on the taxi company. The cost of a
taxi ride from the suburban areas to the city centre is around SGD 10 to 15.

A taxi may be hailed from the side of the road as long as it is within
authorised areas to pick up passengers. However, along roads in the Central
Business District (in which the IOC/YOG hotels are located) where buses ply,
taxis can only pick up passengers at designated taxi stands and driveways of
buildings from Mondays to Saturdays, 09:00 to 22:00 hours. It is
recommended that clients who wish to hail a public taxi from a competition
venue make use of the taxi stands shown in the maps at the end of this
guide.

It is mandatory for public taxi drivers to charge a fare based on the meter,
with the addition of one or more standard surcharges. In the event of
disputes, clients are advised to contact the LTA at 1800-CALL-LTA (1800-
2255-582).


3.2        Complimentary Public Transport for Singapore 2010
           Clients
3.2.1       Introduction
Unlimited complimentary travel on public transport is provided to all
Singapore 2010 accredited clients daily between 10 and 28 Aug 2010.
Ticket-holding spectators enjoy complimentary public bus rides and up to

Accredited clients will each be issued a DBS Visa Prepaid Card8 during the

                                                                         31
3.2.2.2    Validity of Prepaid Card
The Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games DBS Visa Prepaid Card issued to
clients is valid for use worldwide up till the date of expiry printed on the
back of the card. Transactions cannot be made with the card upon expiry.


3.2.2.3   Security Features of Prepaid Card
The following are some of the security features of the DBS Visa Prepaid Card:

•    The Prepaid Card is not linked to any client’s bank account. It needs to
     be activated before it can be used for cash transactions, including value
     top-up by cash or credit/debit card. As part of the activation process,
     clients can register their card via the Prepaid Card portal “My Account”
     on the DBS website. This is to protect the card balance in their Prepaid
     Card. In the event of loss, theft or suspected fraud, the bank will be able
     to authenticate the client registration details and block usage of cards.

3.3     Car Rental
3.3.1   Introduction
Singapore 2010 accredited clients who require car rental services may refer
to the Directory of Services.

3.3.2   Requirements for Car Rental
To drive in Singapore, foreigners must possess a valid International Driving
Permit issued by an authorised body in their country of origin, e.g. the
Automobile Association, if they have resided in Singapore for less than 12
months. If an International Driving Permit is not available, an official
translation of the foreign driving licence in English will be required.
Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) nationals will only need to
possess a valid driving licence issued by the appropriate authority in their
country.


                                                                          33
Foreigners who have been in Singapore for more than 12 months must have
a valid Singapore driving licence to drive in Singapore.

Different car rental companies may also have other requirements such as
minimum age requirement. Clients should also take note that some
companies may not rent cars to non-Singaporeans.


3.3.3       Important Information on Car Rental
It is recommended that clients who rent cars request for a GPS navigation
system or a set of road maps from the rental company to assist them with
navigating the roads in Singapore. They are also encouraged to enquire
about the Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) scheme, an electronic gantry system
imposed on certain roads at specific timings to deduct road usage fees by
CashCard, as well as how to obtain parking coupons for use at certain public
car parks. Depending on the car rental company, clients may need to
purchase their own CashCard and parking coupons.

Vehicle Access and Parking Permits (VAPPs) will not be provided for rented
cars. As such, rented cars will not be allowed to enter Singapore 2010
venues and must instead be parked at public locations outside the venues.
Suggested parking locations are shown on the maps in section 6. Parking
fees may be levied at public car parks and, depending on the type of car park,
payable by CashCard or parking coupon.

Appendix 2 provides approximate driving distances between the YTM/CTM
and each venue.

Clients who rent cars are advised to read about the Youth Olympic Lanes, on
which they will be required to give way to official Singapore 2010 vehicles, in
section 2.4.


3.4       Private Transport

Clients taking private transport to Singapore 2010 venues, such as getting a
ride from somebody else, are reminded that they may alight anywhere
outside a venue as long as it is legal for the vehicle to stop there under
Singapore law, and it is outside the venue perimeter. This includes public
taxi stands. Please note that VAPPs will be unavailable for vehicles that are
not official Singapore 2010 vehicles (i.e. with the official livery and licence
plate), meaning that they will be unable to enter the venue perimeter or
secure perimeter of official Singapore 2010 venues.
