I paid 38 Singapore dollars for a 3 day unlimited tourist pass to use public transport in Singapore including the MRT.

The MRT is clean, and the service is incredibly streamline. Everything is well organised and there is no chaos like you would experience with the London tubes for example.

People wait at the sides of the door ways for people to clearly get off and on to the train. There are priority seats which I witnessed an elderly person hush a younger person off so do stay clear of those seats and let them be used for their desired audience.

The carriages are clean and spacious. The great thing I found is that the voice over is also in English which is really helpful. The train lines also light up to show you what stop you are at and what stop is next. It also lights up to show what side the doors will be opening.

This is a very simple, clear, organised travel solution which i have found impressive and easy to navigate without much thought and attention to the routes!

You have to experience it! Puts our London Underground to much shame!

Very nice & easy way to get around singapore ..
You can just get a map of the different lines ..
Locate your nearest station ..
Then it’s easy to figure out how to reach where ..

You can either get a card for the different public transports in singapore that you recharge ..
I wasn’t staying for a long time so I just bought a ticket whenever I was riding ..
The ticket you buy from a machine ..
You just choose the station name you’re heading out to .. it then tells you the price and you pay either cash or credit card ..
Don’t throw the ticket away though..
You can recharge it up to 5 or 6 times ..

It is wheelchair accessible

the Singapore metro is excellent, you practically move with it all over the city. Many stations connect to malls and buildings. The price is great. One tip for arriving by plane is to take the subway, the station is connected to the airport.
