Public Transport In Singapore
You can reach most destinations in Singapore within an hour if you travel by car. The expressways are well-constructed with 3 to 4 lanes and are linked to other expressways and roads.
Alternatively, one can hop onto our Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), a train service that has served us since the 80s. The MRT line covers all the major towns and efficiently connects suburbs to the central business district. The recent opening of the Circle Line in 2009 makes it even faster to travel between some places. The MRT lines covers locations in different directions, and are colour-coded. They are connected to each other at particular stations, where you can change to another line. The maps are detailed and in different languages.
There is also a wide and extensive network of bus services which covers every nook and cranny in Singapore. SBS Transit and SMRT Bus Services makes Singapore accessible to even the most unvisited places. There is a guidebook on the Singapore transportation system that covers the train and bus network, which will come in handy to travelers. This guidebook is on sale at most train stations and major bookstores.
Taxi services can also come in handy should you get lost. The friendly taxi drivers will directly drive you to your requested destinations hassle-free, and a typical taxi fare will cost around 5 to 15 dollars, which is rather affordable. You can hail a taxi along any stretch of road.
