Give a Hand to someone in need on your commute 


Now that you have learnt more about how to better help fellow commuters, don’t forget to Give a Hand to someone in need during your commute. Commuters such as wheelchair users, persons with autism, those living with dementia and persons with invisible conditions might sometimes need our assistance on public transport. Don’t be shy to approach them to ask if they require any help before rendering assistance.

Look out for opportunities to Give Care


As you commute around for your holiday shopping and visiting, show care and keep a look out for commuters in need. For a start, you can visit the Heart Zones set up at 11 locations across the island and help out fellow commuters who may require assistance to their destinations.

Give Thanks to a caring person in your life


Much like it is important for us to show care to the people around us, we should appreciate the kindness we receive as well, even if it is from strangers. If you have received a helping hand from someone this year, why not reach out to thank them and show your appreciation? If you spot a caring commuter while you are on your commute, you can approach them to give thanks and don’t hesitate to share the caring stories on our Community Wall.


Most importantly, the season of giving is all about sharing love and care with everyone around you. Wishing all commuters happy holidays and plenty of blessings as we step into the new year.
