Currently, under distance fares, transfers between different MRT lines at interchange stations are considered a single journey ("Relook rail fares for transfers between City Hall, Esplanade" by Mr Lee Yong Se; last Friday).
City Hall and Esplanade are two different stations. In this instance, a commuter would have started a new journey when he exits City Hall station and re-enters at Esplanade station.
For more information, commuters may refer to the MyTransport website.
