Mass Rapid Transit (MRT)
The MRT operates from around 5.30am to midnight daily. Adult fares range from $0.92 to $2.80, depending on distance travelled. Standard tickets for single-trip fares cost more than fares paid through an ez-link card, a stored value smartcard.
Get standard tickets from General Ticketing Machines at MRT/LRT stations. Designed for single trip or return trip travel, a standard ticket has a 10-cent deposit and can be used for up to six trips within 30 days from date of purchase. The deposit is automatically returned through an offset against the fare on the third trip.
Get ez-link cards from MRT TransitLink Ticket Offices, Concession Card Replacement Offices at selected MRT Stations and bus interchanges, Passenger Service Centres within most MRT Stations or 7-Eleven stores. Alternatively, get a one-to-three-day Singapore Tourist Pass ($10 to $20) for unlimited rides on the MRT and public bus at selected MRT TransitLink Ticket Offices.
