Singapore’s MRT (mass rapid transit) system is probably the fastest way to zip around the city. The extensive rail network means that most of Singapore’s key attractions are within walking distance from an MRT station.
You can buy tickets for single trips, but if you intend to use the MRT and basic bus services frequently during your visit, you can buy a Singapore Tourist Pass, a special EZ-Link stored-value card which will allow you unlimited travel for one day (SGD 10), two days (SGD 16) or three days (SGD 20). The cards can be bought at the TransitLink Ticket Office at the following MRT stations: Changi Airport, Orchard, Chinatown, City Hall, Raffles Place, Ang Mo Kio, HarbourFront, Bugis, Lavender and Bayfront.
To locate an MRT station, simply look out for MRT signs displayed along main roads and the beacons and signs prominently displayed outside stations.
Singapore’s trains and stations are accessible to wheel chair users and the visually impaired, as well as families with strollers.
