About Singapore

Getting around

By Public Transportation (MRT and Buses)

The Mass Rapid Transit, or MRT, is one of the cost-efficient and reliable ways to travel around Singapore, with stations located all across the island. The train stations are split into 4 lines - red, green, purple and yellow lines. The MRT is operational every day from 5.30am to about midnight, depending on the line. Please click here for the MRT Network Map.

In addition to MRT, there is an extensive Bus network which provides a wider coverage across the island. This will enable you to travel to places that are less accessible. You can check the bus routes for SBS Transit Buses and for SMRT Buses online respectively.

To travel on the MRT/Bus, an ez-link card is recommended. The card is used to pay for the cost of the trip, by tapping when entering and exiting the Bus/MRT. Please remember to tap out upon exiting the Bus as the maximum charge will be deducted.

Ez-link cards are sold at Translink Ticket Offices found at various MRT stations, 7-Eleven stores and SingPost Outlets. The price for each card is SGD$5, with any additional cost being added to the card as stored value. If the value in the card runs out, the ez-link cards can be topped up at the locations where they are sold.An alternative choice would be to pay per trip using a Standard Ticket (MRT) or by paying in coins (Bus). However, this payment method will cost more, with a minimum cost of $1.10 up to a maximum of $2.20 per trip.

By Taxi

The more convenient way of travelling around, taxis is available all across Singapore. It is possible to hail down a cab along the road, but the best way is to wait at any of the many taxi stands around the Singapore. However, during peak hours from 7-9am and 5-8pm, it will be difficult to find taxis. Taxis are operational 24 hours a day, but there is an additional percentage surcharge during peak hours and midnight.

For more detailed information, please refer to Land Transport Authority’s website.If you are travelling in a group, are carrying bulky items or are unable to get a taxi, it is possible to call for a taxi.

Singapore is a hot and humid country, with only rain (ranging from a light drizzle to a thunderstorm) and sunshine throughout the year. Being at the equator, the average temperature rises to 31 degree Celsius in the day and drops to about 24 degree Celsius in the evening. As such, it is recommended to wear loose light clothing, like shorts and slippers, and bring an umbrella along. However, various places like buses, trains and shopping malls in Singapore have air-conditioning and provide a chance to cool off during the day.
