Singapore has an efficient transportation network of taxis, buses and the modern Mass Rapid Transit system (MRT) which ensures that getting from one place to another is hassle-free and extremely affordable.
Airport Shuttle Service
Travelers looking for a speedy and affordable transport option that brings you to the doorstep of your hotel are recommended to take the City Shuttle Service which charges at a rate of S$9 per adult / S$6 per child (below 12 years of age).
The City Shuttle departs every 15 minutes during peak hours and up to 30 minutes during non-peak hours. Please approach the 24-hour Ground Transport Concierge at the Arrival Halls for bookings or call the hotlines for more information.

Taxis are comfortable and especially handy if you want to go to places not accessible by the bus or MRT. Cabs here are metered, but there may be surcharges depending on when, where and which company’s taxi you board. To get a rough idea of the final fare, check with the driver on the surcharges and ask for a receipt at the end of the trip. You can hail a taxi by the roadside at most places, or by queuing for one at taxi stands found at most shopping malls, hotels and tourist attractions. If you wish to book a cab, you can call a common taxi booking number, 6-DIAL CAB (+65-6342-5222), and your call will be routed to an available taxi company's call centre.
Singapore's bus system has an extensive network of routes covering most places in Singapore and is the most economical way to get around, as well as being one of the most scenic. You can pay your bus fare using an EZ-Link stored-value card or the Singapore Tourist Pass (STP), which you tap on the card reader located next to the driver as you board. Do remember to tap your card again, on the reader located at the rear exit, when you alight. You can also pay in cash, but you will need to have exact change.
Singapore’s MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) system is probably the fastest way to zip around the city. The extensive rail network means that most of Singapore’s key attractions are within walking distance from an MRT station. You can buy tickets for single trips, but if you intend to use the MRT and basic bus services frequently during your visit, you can buy a Singapore Tourist Pass (STP), a special EZ-Link stored-value card which will allow you unlimited travel for one day (S$10), two days (S$16) or three days (S$20). The cards can be bought at the TransitLink Ticket Office at the following MRT stations: Orchard, City Hall, Raffles Place, Bayfront, Tanjong Pagar, Harbourfront, Chinatown, Farrer Park, Changi Airport, Bugis, Lavender, Jurong East, Kranji, Woodlands, Ang Mo Kio; or at the Concession Card Replacement Office at Somerset station. They are also available at the Automated STP Kiosks at Changi Airport MRT Station (Terminal 2 and 3) near the Transitlink Ticket Office.
