By train

An incoming Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) train on the rail track

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 (STP), a special EZ-Link stored-value card which will allow you unlimited travel for one day (S$10), two days (S$16) or three days (S$20).

The cards can be bought at the TransitLink Ticket Office at the following MRT stations―Orchard, City Hall, Raffles Place, Bayfront, Tanjong Pagar, HarbourfrontChinatown, Farrer Park, Changi AirportBugis, Lavender, Jurong East, Kranji, Woodlands, Ang Mo Kio―or at the Concession Card Replacement Office at Somerset station. They are also available at the Automated STP Kiosks at Changi Airport MRT Station (Terminal 2 and 3) near the Transitlink Ticket Office.

You can also now use your foreign-issued MasterCard contactless bank cards issued outside of Singapore for the payment of public transport fares in Singapore. Foreign admin fee applies, please refer to TransitLink’s SimplyGo website for more information.

Singapore’s trains and stations are accessible to wheel chair users and the visually impaired, as well as families with strollers.

By taxi

Cross junction at Chinatown neighbourhood
Taxis are comfortable and especially handy if you want to go to places not accessible by the bus or MRT. Cabs here are metered, but there may be surcharges depending on when, where and which company’s taxi you board. To get a rough idea of the final fare, check with the driver on the surcharges and ask for a receipt at the end of the trip. You can hail a taxi by the roadside at most places, or by queuing for one at taxi stands found at most shopping malls, hotels and tourist attractions. If you wish to book a cab, you can call a common taxi booking number, 6-DIAL CAB (6342-5222), and your call will be routed to an available taxi company's call centre.

By bus

Two double-decker public buses on the road

Singapore's bus system has an extensive network of routes covering most places in Singapore and is the most economical way to get around, as well as being one of the most scenic.

You can pay your bus fare using an EZ-Link stored-value card or the Singapore Tourist Pass (STP), which you tap on the card reader located next to the driver as you board. You can also use your foreign-issued MasterCard contactless bank cards issued outside of Singapore to pay for your ride. Do remember to tap your card again, on the reader located at the rear exit, when you alight. You can also pay in cash but you will need to have exact change.

Most buses in Singapore have air-conditioning - a welcome comfort in a tropical city.
