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, Harbourfront, Chinatown, Farrer Park, Changi Airport, Bugis, 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.
