Sentosa lowers weekend drive-in rates; streamlines entry charges for cars and taxis
As part of efforts to deepen Sentosa’s engagement with the local community, Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) has simplified island admission fees for guests entering in cars and taxis.
With immediate effect, drive-in rates via the Sentosa Gateway will be reduced to $2 during lunchtime and after 5pm on weekends, amongst the changes to be implemented for an initial period of two years:
The revised island admission fees will complement the simplified car park charges that were rolled out by SDC at Beach Station, Imbiah, Tanjong Beach, Palawan Beach and Sentosa Cove Village in August 2017:
Other island admission waivers and concessions
With the latest changes, there are now various ways Singapore residents can enter Sentosa for free or at lower rates.
Guests who enjoy free island admission include:
- Personal mobility device (PMD) users,
- Child Concession Card holders entering via the Sentosa Express,
- Organised school and community groups entering on chartered coaches during weekdays (excluding public holidays),
- Guests strolling in via the Sentosa Boardwalk
- Guests entering on SBS Transit’s bus 123, who only pay the prevailing distance-based bus fare
Island admission rates via the Sentosa Express have also been halved for selected TransitLink Concession Card holders, including senior citizens, persons with disabilities, workfare income supplement recipients, as well as primary, secondary, junior college and Institute of Technical Education students.
Once on the island, all guests enjoy free travel on the Sentosa Express, Sentosa Buses, and Beach Trams.
Mr Chin Sak Hin, Assistant Chief Executive, SDC said: “Being a one-stop holiday destination for Singaporeans, with our array of attractions, unique dining outlets and hotels amongst the various offerings, we are always on the lookout for ways to delight our local community. Such efforts include enhancing the affordability of our island’s experiences. With the year-end school holidays upon us soon, we look forward to welcoming more guests and their loved ones, who will be able to take advantage of changes in island admission fees to visit and enjoy Sentosa’s unique leisure activities.”
