Can be used for rail and buses. $10 rental for card, plus $20 pass amount, to be used for 3 consecutive days for unlimited travel. On 4th day we topped ours up with the minimum amount of $10 at the automated booth. On conclusion of our trip, we went back to the ticketing office to return our card and obtaining our $10+ refund on each. Very easy to use, make sure you plan your days to get the maximum benefit from your cards. All the rail links are colour coded, just make sure you are going in the right direction. On time and so clean. Well worth it.

We bought an MRT Card which cost $12, $7 of which is to pay for the card the balance for fares. This allows use on buses and trains and can be topped up at any station for a minimum of $10. We found this the most economical way to travel around Singapore and it is so easy to navigate their rail system. Their trains and stations are spotless, the trains run on time, and are relatively cheap. The locals are all polite and there was no pushing it all works so well.

SBS Transit is one of the two operators of the MRT lines and the Bus Services in Singapore (the other being SMRT). Having described the MRT system in a separate review on TripAdvisor's SMRT page, here I'm going to describe the bus system.

Buses in Singapore, I discovered, are run by 4 different companies, each having buses painted in different colours, though the fare charged is the same for the same distance. During my vacation in Singapore, I travelled much using the bus services. Some route numbers that I remember are: 106, 502, 139, 64, 65, 36 (with which I went to Changi airport, too).

As compared to the buses in some other countries and cities, Singaporean buses are at par, if not, requiring some minor improvements.

In many of the buses in which I travelled, there was no display of the next bus station. Every time I needed to have Google Maps handy just in case I may get confused remembering the bus stop names. In London, where I travelled to a year ago, the next bus stop is mentioned in the display alongside "BUS STOPPING" sign. The drivers were a bit rasher as compared to some other cities, I noticed that they sometimes honked too even when there was no need of it.

Otherwise, kudos and a big thumbs up to the efficient and handy public transport network Singapore has. Quite cheaper than taxis, though taxis as compared to London aren't that expensive.

The bus service in Singapore is excellent. Between the Metro system and the buses it is very easy to get around Singapore for a reasonable price.

It's the Singapore MRT (one of the operators, the other is SMRT). Probably one of the best systems in the world. Clean, quick and one card for all (bus and train). If you are physically fit to walk reasonable distances, you don't need to use a taxi for most of your travel in Singapore. Usually you can find an MRT or bus station within 500m or less, and connect between them to get to your destination.

An excellent example of a well planned and efficiently operated rail system. Clean, quick, frequent, no hooliganism, safe and reliable. All the ingredients to make a rail system success. Gee if only New York planners could take on board some of the ingredients

Sbs transit is the biggest public transport state operating the bus services inside the city. Once you are in singapore get the smart card right there from the airport and use it in buses and metro trains.buses are of very good quality and the service is excellent. Once you are in singapore just try this and experience the difference.
