Public Transport In Singapore

Singapore, the lion city, the one that has everything to offer. What can be said about Singapore that hasn’t already been said? There’s a lot of information on everything you want to know about Singapore, all you have to do is flip open your laptop. While finding out about the attractions, entertainment, Singapore visa and Singapore tour packages might be fairly easy, what gets tricky is how to navigate through the city. So we are here with a solution. Here’s how you can wade through the roads of Singapore.


The buses in Singapore are very well known. For a city like Singapore which is tropical in nature and the temperature is always high, AC buses come as a blessing in disguise. These long buses have extensive network and connect the city very well. You can get an EZ link store value card, which is easier. Or if you have the exact change you can pay by cash as well. A good effective way to get around Singapore.


When you’re checking off all the tourist attractions in Singapore the best way to hop between these destinations would be to use Singapore’s MRT (mass rapid transit). This zips around the entire city. They have various smart cards on offer. You can get the one day EZ-Link Store value card for 10$ and a two day one for 16$ and a three day one for 30$. This allows you unlimited travel. Definitely a good option if you’re on a budgeted holiday.


If comfort and luxury is what you’re aiming at, then taxis are definitely made for you. You could flag a taxi on the road. But most taxis in Singapore prefer to be on call for which you’d have to call the local taxi booking number, 6342-5222. Though mind you they do add a certain charge if you phone a cab. But none the less it’s a sure shot way of getting a cab. And if you’re travelling at odd hours, this might just become your life line.
