The public transport network in Singapore consists of bus, MRT (Mass
Rapid Transit), LRT (Light Rail Transit) and taxi. Buses and MRTs are the most
affordable modes of public transport with standard fares ranging from S$1.40 to
S$3.00 (depending on distance). Bus fares are charged on board by tapping a
stored-value card or paying the exact fare in Singapore currency to the driver.
Bus and MRT fares can be calculated using the Fare Calculator on the Public
Transport website (
MRT fare is paid by tapping a Stored Value Smartcard or a Standard
Ticket at the gantry. The Standard Ticket can be used up to six times within 30
days from the date of purchase. The purchase price includes a deposit of 10
cents which will be automatically returned through an off-set against the
passenger's fare on the third trip. A user also enjoys a 10-cent discount on
the sixth trip. The Standard Ticket can be purchased at the General Ticketing
Machine (GTM) at all MRT and LRT stations. LRTs are only available in selected
residential neighbourhoods and operate similarly as MRTs.
Typically, the first bus and train starts running at 5.30am and the
last service is 11.30pm daily. Special night bus services, NightRider (NR), with

taxi-stands outside most major shopping centres and hotels. There is no need to
bargain for prices as the taxis are all metered. The basic fare consists of a flag-down fare

between S$3.20 and S$5.00, depending on the type of taxi (standard or premium).

times during the journey. Additional charges may also be incurred depending on
the time of travel and origin of the journey. A detailed rates guide is posted
on the rear door of each taxi for reference.
