Singapore Public Transportation
A very advanced infrastructure of public transportation has played a pivotal role in evolution of Singapore as a giant of tourism hub in Asia. The island has a very strong connectivity through the efficient services of bus, taxi, and Mass Rapid Transit (MRT).
Buses are one of the most convenient and economical ways to commute in the city. The Singapore bus services are operated by SBS Transit, SMRT Buses, Tower Transit Singapore, and Go-Ahead Singapore. Special Night Buses are also available to help you experience the gorgeous nightlife of this city. You can use the EZ-Link card to simply swipe and use the bus services.
Taxis are another very popular mode of public transport in Singapore and surprisingly cheaper than they cost in any other developed country. In 2016, self-driving taxi services were launched and became the world’s first ever country to have introduced such service. The taxis are air-conditioned and metered.
Mass Rapid Transit (MRT)
The Rapid Transit System is an extraordinarily clean and efficient train system that makes commuting around Singapore very easy and affordable. Five lines connect over 100 stations across the city-state, and the quick and frequent services make every corner of Singapore very easily accessible. MRT operates from 5:30 am to 1:00 am daily barring few public holidays.
