"The MRT (subway/ tube/ metro)" Singapore Transportation Tip by rite_of_spring

Singapore Transportation: 530 reviews and 475 photos

It is very easy to get around Singapore. The infrastructure is well-developed and it is impossible to get lost in this small sunny island ;-)

The smart card (ez-link card) can be used for both public bus and MRT. It can be bought from bus interchanges or MRT stations (either over-the counter or by vending machine). A deposit of SGD3 is required.

On boarding, just tap the card on the card reader and do the same thing upon the exit, the fare will be deducted automatically.

Type: Subway/Metro
