Singapore hands down has the easiest and efficient public transportation out of any city I have been to! For the MRT all you have to do is buy a MRT card at any one of the station, it’s an initial $7 SGD but you get $5 to start to ride, and then you can top up at any station whenever you need to add more money!
It’s a pay for distance type travel card so you tap in to enter the station (it will tell you how much is left on your card) and tap out at the stop you are exiting and it tells you how much the ride cost. The MRT card also works for all of the public buses with the same system tap on and off and cost is by distance. Every once in a while you may get free rides or reduced prices.
The MRT will bring you right near any possible location on the island that you could possibly want to get to, and they are constantly expanding and adding new lines! All of the trains are very clean as they have no food or drink rules on the trains.
The only sad thing about the MRT is that all lines stop running around midnight every night and then start back up around 5 or 6am. This is for maintenance, so I guess we can’t complain.
