“With 100 stations, in almost every town island-wide, BlueSG is a convenient and competitive commuting option in complement of the existing public transport network,” Franck Vitté, Managing Director, BlueSG said in a statement. “Moving forward, this will contribute to car-lite Singapore for the benefit of the environment.”
