Most MRT stations in Singapore are connected to a shopping mall so it is very easy to find.MRT can get very crowded starting from 5pm however.

Took the cab from the airport but after that switched to the MRT. It was very well sign posted everywhere, with signs on streets telling you how many meters in which direction to go. Machines made it very easy to get a ticket which you could pay per journey up to 6 times before getting a new ticket. We found it cheaper to do this than getting a tourist day pass. Also the returns are the cost of two singles so we always got singles in case our plans changed and we went somewhere else. Cheap, fast, clean and very easy to use.

We are from the country and have only gone on mass transit systems a few times. However, I would recommend that one in Singapore. One good reason is that taxi's become more expensive after 6 p.m. Like double. So the mass transit system saves you money especially on long trips. Purchasing a ticket at the machine is pretty easy and there was a SMRT person there to help. Plus the Singapore people are very helpful as well. We used it to get from the light show at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel back to our hotel. The price was only around 1.50 per ticket. Pricing depends on your start and destination, at least it did in our case. Transit lines are color coded and well marked. The trains are clean. People readily gave up their seats to elderly persons. We felt very safe during the whole journey. The trains ran frequently. I would recommend this mode of transportation.

We recently visited Singapore for 4 nights and purchased a 3day MRT tourist pass at Changi. Previously on our visits we have used taxis which are affordable. This time all our travel was done on train and buses which is great way to mix with the locals. All the timetables have frequent intervals and operate on time. A lot of the train stations connect directly with department stores and attractions. Would highly recommend this means of getting around Singapore.

Clean, safe and easy to use. Covers the whole city. Used single ticket system, but tourist passes (unlimited riding) are available.
