Most of us have to commute daily for work and school, so it is an expense we cannot avoid. Travel Smart Rewards is a scheme that gives us an opportunity to get some cash rewards back for our commuting expenses. If you happen to commute during off-peak hours, you get additional points and higher chances of getting rewards. Travel Smart Rewards is supported by Singapore Land Transport Authority, in partnership with TransitLink and sponsored by SMRT.

About Travel Smart Rewards
This rewards program encourages participants to shift their commute schedules on the Singapore rail system away from overcrowded peak times. The more commuters participate in Travel Smart Rewards, the more opportunities they will have to receive random rewards. Travel Smart Rewards 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!
By participating in Travel Smart Rewards, you will earn points for all the trips you make on the MRT and LRT systems, with triple points for the morning off-peak trips. Use your Travel Smart Rewards points to win cash rewards on the Travel Smart Rewards website. The cash rewards will be transferred each month to your Cepas card.
You earn points by taking train trips using the CEPAS card registered in Travel Smart Rewards. You will automatically earn 1 point for every 1 kilometre travelled on the train all day Monday through Friday, weekends don’t count. Designated decongesting hours earn extra points – see table below! You can earn 3, 4, 5 or 6 points per kilometre in decongesting hours if you are Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum!
After signing up, go to the settings tab and register the card you currently use for commuting.
You can use the points you accumulate to play a mini game to earn cash rewards or more points.
