Public transport decoration

Two trains, one MRT station, five buses, and an integrated hub have been decked out with Deepavali-themed decorations.

Two decorated trains -- one on the North East Line and another on the Downtown Line -- will run from now until Nov. 9.

Little India MRT station has also been decorated to usher in the Hindu festival of lights.

The Deepavali-themed decorations feature the rangoli motif, which symbolises good luck.

Deepavali falls on Nov. 6 this year.

The decorations were ready by Oct. 6.

Boon Lay Integrated Transport Hub as well as five buses -- service numbers 23, 64, 65, 147 and 166 -- have also been decorated with a similar theme.

The Land Transport Authority said the themed trains and buses were launched in collaboration with the Little India Shopkeepers & Heritage Association.
