Getting Around Singapore by Bus
Singapore is an island-nation blessed with a lot of natural and man-made tourist attractions. Touring around the country to visit these places can be more fun by taking the bus. As a matter of fact, the country has one of the most efficient and safest public transport systems in the entire Southeast Asia region.
Taking You to Every Corner of the Island
Public buses can even get you to places that are beyond the reach of the MRT. They are very frequent in the city center and provide transportation starting from the break of day until midnight.
A Variety of Styles
Buses can range from single deck coaches, 20-seaters, double-deckers and twin-carriage “bendy buses”. In general, Singaporeans and tourists love riding buses because fares are very cheap. For short journeys, fare starts at under SGD$1. You can also use the EZ-Link prepay card for even cheaper fare.
In a generally humid place like our country, cool air is always preferred by the public. You need not worry of sweating out while going around different places because buses here are all air-conditioned. However, the only drawback is the fare. Although it is slightly more expensive, it is reasonable because you will be getting extra comfort in return.
The Best Means of Transportation
Buses are arguably the best means of public transportation, especially if you want to make your whole experience of exploring the island-nation extra memorable. While the MRT metro system provides a quicker and more convenient option for commuters, nothing can still compare to the fun and excitement of taking a bus ride to get around this little paradise.
