"MRT - fast, efficient rail system" Singapore Transportation Tip by colin_bramso
Singapore Transportation: 532 reviews and 485 photos
the MRT rail system is probably the best way to travel around Singapore. It's easy to use, the maps are clear, signage is excellent, fares are amazingly inexpensive.
The carriages and stations are spotlessly clean, the whole system is air-conditioned, the trains run frequently so there's never long to wait.
You can buy a pre-paid plastic card, the fare being deducted automatically as you go through the barrier. The machine also tells you the balance remaining on the card and you can top it up at a machine in the stations.
Alternatively, buy a plastic card for each journey from the machines. The fare is shown on the route map, you add S$1 deposit which you claim back from a machine when the card has been used. It's all very simple and very efficient.
