Hiring a car is very expensive in Singapore. However, an
extensive bus network and the reliable MRT train subway system are
both cheap and user-friendly and service all parts of Singapore.
Electronic EZ-Link passes cover trains and buses and prevent the
need to carry loose change for fares as well as giving a slight
discount on standard ticket prices. The city also has thousands of
metered taxis, which are safe, air-conditioned and surprisingly
affordable, driven by helpful and honest drivers. The only drawback
is the long taxi queues during rush hour. Many of the tourist
attractions are situated close together and walking is a safe and
pleasant option if you can handle the heat.
