Singapore in general has a very dense network of roads and highways, and hence almost every part of Singapore is interconnected. In addition to which, there are also public transport modes available on every part of the island.
Some of these modes are:
The SBS Bus Transport service consists of a large amount of buses trawling over Singapore on any average day. It comprises of differing bus services (denoted by different bus numbers) which serve pre-decided bus routes covering the whole of Singapore. In addition, these bus services are very efficient, and there are even physically-disabled friendly buses being executed recently!
The Transitlink Bus Transport Service is about the same as the SBS Bus Transport service except that it is under a different company. It also works under a similar system of service.
These two bus services has buses which start their rounds as early as 5.30am in the morning and ends as late as 1am in the night!
The various taxi services all over Singapore serve to be forms of transport when an individual is rushing somewhere, or has little idea how to get to his destination with a lack of knowledge on bus routes. This is ideal for tourists as they may be new to Singapore. As such, with affordable rates, these services provide a reliable and fast mode of transport to places upon request of the passenger.
Lastly, the Singapore Mass Rapid Transit is the next most popular form of transport in Singapore besides the bus. The Mass Rapid Transit, more commonly known as the MRT, is an underground transport mode (sometimes over-ground) that fetches passengers to the most common or key places in Singapore, for example, Chinatown or Orchard. A usual day in the MRT would be a very crowded and squeezed one. There are several trains doing their rounds each day, and they will stop at various stations to pick passengers up. As such, during peak hours, it will be very crowded at these stations.
