Trains and buses
It is easy to get around in Singapore by public transportation, with an extensive network of trains and buses connecting to almost every corner of the island. Safe and efficient, the trains connect the major areas of the island-city. The trains run from 6am to midnight, and cost a minimum of 1.4SGD/1USD for cash fares. Single trip tickets can be purchased from vending machines at all MRT stations. Comfortable buses travel to almost every part of the island, including the heartland. Cash fares start from 1.4SGD/1USD. Night buses from the city centre to the residential estates are available on Friday and Saturday nights, as well as on the eve of public holidays. If you are staying for a few days, consider getting an EZ-link card. A useful card for savings and convenience, the card can be used on both trains and buses, with fares starting from 77 cents. You can purchase the card at selected MRT stations, bus interchanges and 7-Eleven stores.
