Three day tourist passes cost only $12 for this fantastic transport system! All the trains ran frequently and connected well, including taking in Changi Airport. "Waits" of over 3 minutes were unusual. The trains and stations were all super clean and felt absolutely safe.

HOWEVER my tourist pass (though not my companion's) failed to work when I got on a bus on day two. I told the bus driver that it was valid but just failing to scan but he wanted me to pay again! So we got off the bus and walked to the nearest MRT train station, which was about 5 minutes away. THEN we found that only selected MRT ticket offices handled tourist passes, so then had to walk for a further 20 minutes or so to a station that dealt with them. After a somewhat lengthy phone call by the clerk was made, I was given a replacement ticket. Singapore MRT, please take notice and rectify the problems with your system that this review highlights...

I purchased 3 day pass from MRT station at the Changi airport.

Travelling in MRT is so easy and comfortable that I didn't spent even a single penny in taxis.

Simply go for MRT wthout any second thought in mind. Don't forget to return the card while leaving Singapore to get the deposit back. You can return the card in Airport itself or in any other MRT station.

Smart Mass Rapid Transit :)

The MRT system is well structured and easy to get around with. You once buy a card which you keep reloading depending on your trips. All machines take cash and cards.

We purchased our three day Singapore tourist pass at Bugis station, the lady in the booth was very helpful and gave us great advice on how to top up at the vending machines at each station and where to return our card to receive our $10 refund at the end of our stay. The Tourist Pass gave us unlimited travel for 3 days on trains and buses. This was fantastic!
The MRT is easily one of the best ways to get around Singapore in three days. All trains are spotlessly clean, with good air conditioning and very punctual. Grab yourself a map of the stations and once you understand the lines (each has a different colour) it becomes easy.
One suggestion: Bugis Station only takes MasterCard so having cash simplified things.

useing the MRT was safe, fast and enjoyable, was easy to read board to find what train we had to take, locals on train always asked if we wanted a seat if there were non available, Buses were a little more problematic, had to sway buses, but in saying that the drivers were alway helpfull with what bus we should catch
