The MRT stations are easily accessible, well sign posted for visitors and it is easy to purchase tickets for your trip. The services are very frequent and fast. The whole MRT is clean and air conditioned. A great way to travel.

I would say SMRT is the best in the world and well connected throughout the city. New MRT lines are coming up.
