Singapore is a wonderful country in Asia with a lot of amazing destinations and special cuisine. Furthermore, the country is known as the clean and modern country in the world, especially public transport, so the post will introduce 3 popular and main public transport means in Singapore to all travelers including MRT, taxi, and bus.
MRT is known as the famous and popular public transportation in Singapore. The MRT is the fastest and most convenient way to travel in Singapore, not to mention the extensive network of stations, which means that most of Singapore’s main attractions are within walking distance from MRT. You can buy an individual ticket for each trip, but the most economical and convenient way is to buy an EZ-Link card, a card that you can recharge according to your needs. Furthermore, the card also uses for the bus as well. The card also has one-day unlimited access (SGD 10), 2 days (16 SGD) or 3 days (20 SGD). Tickets can be purchased at the TransitLink Ticket Office or at any MRT station. In addition, wheelchair and visually impaired people, as well as families with baby strollers, can easily access the subway in Singapore.
If you want to save money as well as travel to more places in there, the bus will be the best choice for you. Singapore’s bus system has a wide network of routes to most destinations and is the most economical way to travel, as well as a chance to see many beautiful sights. Moreover, you can pay bus’s ticket by EZ-Link card which was paid in advance. Just tap this card on the card reader next to the driver and make sure you touch the card again in the card reader near the door when you get off the bus. If you forget to touch the car, you will be charged a maximum for that trip. You can also pay cash, but it should be an exact amount. Most buses in Singapore are air-conditioned and the car is quite comfortable.
If you travel with the group of people, you should transfer by taxi. Moreover, the taxi will be comfortable and especially convenient if you want to go to places where the bus or MRT cannot reach. Taxis charge according to the meter but may also be subject to a surcharge depending on the time (such as late evening), location and taxi company’s choice. To estimate the amount of money to be paid, ask the driver for a surcharge and ask for a bill at the end of the trip.
You can wobble the taxi when standing by the road in most locations or by lining up in the taxi waiting areas available at most of the shopping centers, hotels, and sightseeing locations. If you want to call a taxi, you can call the general taxi number.
Besides these means, you can also refer to other transports such as private car but if you want to save money and learn more about local life, public transport will be the best choice for you. If you need more information, you can visit Asia Travel Agency to get more
