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.
Visitors can use the following options for MRT journeys:
1. Get 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 Pass can be bought at the TransitLink Ticket Office at selected MRT stations listed here, or at the Concession Card Replacement Office at Somerset station. They are also available 24 hours daily at the Automated STP Kiosks at Changi Airport MRT Station (Terminal 2 and 3) near the Transitlink Ticket Office.
2. You can also use your foreign-issued Mastercard® and Visa 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.
3. Adult Stored Value Smartcard (EZ-link / Nets FlashPay)
4. Single Trip Tickets
Singapore’s trains and stations are accessible to wheel chair users and the visually impaired, as well as families with strollers.
