About Singapore

Singapore is much more than the sum of its numerous attractions. It’s constantly evolving, reinventing, and reimagining itself, with people who are passionate about creating new possibilities.

It’s where foodies, explorers, collectors, action seekers, culture shapers, and socialisers meet – and new experiences are created every day.

MRT in Singapore

All aboard! The MRT and LRT system is one of the most popular modes of transport in Singapore with a ridership of over 3 million passengers a day.

The MRT system is the backbone of Singapore’s public transport network and spans some 150km across the island. Since the first five MRT stations began running in 1987, the MRT system has grown to comprise 90 over stations.


  • Train operation hours are from 5.30am to about midnight daily and are usually extended during festive periods.
  • The train frequency during peak hours of 7am to 9am is about 2 to 3 minutes and about 5 to 7 minutes during off-peak times.
  • Pay for your ride with a contactless stored-value card or a standard ticket.
  • Various maps are available at all stations to help you find your way around the stations.
  • Be mindful of the gap between the train doors and the platform when you are alighting or boarding the train. Do not rush to board when the door closing chime and announcements play.


All train fares are paid using a form of contactless smart card. Just tap the card to scan your train ticket at the gantries when you enter and exit the train platform area. The panel on the exit gantries will indicate the remaining value in your card.

There are several types of contactless smart cards and these come in single-journey and stored-value form.
