In Pictures: Singapore’s Trains and Buses Celebrate Deepavali in Style

Decked with stunning rangoli designs, majestic elephants for luck and traditional Indian motifs, these buses and trains will run until the end of October.

For the second year in a row, Singapore goes all out to make the festival of lights a memorable one for its commuters! Kickstarting the festive season on an awe-inspiring note, Singapore’s Land Transport Authority brought back its Deepavali-themed trains and buses once again and had its large Indian community in raptures.

Decked with stunning rangoli designs, majestic elephants for luck and traditional Indian motifs, these buses and trains will run until the end of October.

While the trains will run along the North East Line (#NEL) and Downtown Line (#DTL), the five Deepavali-themed buses include Services 23, 56, 65, 147 and 166.

This move by the popular Mass Rapid Transit, managed by Land Transport Authority (LTR), the statutory board under the Ministry of Transport of Government of Singapore, won hearts yet again, promoting harmony among diverse cultures.

From stunning street lighting to a complete makeover of the popular Little India station, its Facebook posts were a sheer delight!
