By Train – Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Line

Singapore has put in place a transportation network that offers access to every corner of the island, either by bus, MRT (the island's underground rail network) or taxi.

The Mass Rapid Transit or the "MRT" as it's more commonly referred to by the locals is one of the most convenient forms of transportation available in the country.

Visitors who wish to travel by MRT(train) are required to purchase an EZ-Link Card, a contactless stored value ticket that can be used on the MRT and buses. Click here for more information.
