    Metro Trap

    by meisetsu Written Dec 31, 2002

    Singapore Metro is great. However, it's not for the REALLY slow walkers. My friend's mum inserted her ticket card into the machine booth to enter into the train platforms. She was about to enter when the machine's gates snapped shut, blocking her out. She was forced to buy another ticket, but this time, she sped through the machine like road runner. =)

    SMRT - Singapore Mass Rapid Transport system

    SMRT train

    This is an example to the world (the UK especially) of how a modern train system should work.

    The air-conditioned trains are spotlessly clean and run frequently from 5:15am until almost 1am the following morning.
    Unlike London where each day part of the network is not running for some reason or other the MRT just keeps running.

    Fares cost between 0.80 and 1.80 SD. If you buy a single ticket there will be a 1 dollar deposit added for the plastic ticket. This can be redeemed after your journey using one of the ticket machines. If you are spending a few days in Singapore it is best to buy a multi-journey ticket for 15 SD which can be topped up. There is a 10 SD minimum top-up amount. at the end of your trip, any money left on the card can be refunded.

    Not only is the MRT fantastically efficient but Singapore truly has an integrated transport policy. Buses can be caught conveniently from MRT stations and the same ticketing system is used so all that is required when boarding a bus is to put your MRT ticket up against the card reader. Remember to do the same thing when you get off the bus otherwise you will be charged double the next time you use your card.

  • Trip Trap at Singapore's Subway

    I'm sure nothing like this has happened to anybody else. My best friend's mom fed her ticket card to the machine and was about to go in when the machine's "fence"(???) snapped shut, locking her out. She was forced to buy another ticket. She was a tad bit slow that time but after that, she's moving like road runner.

    Singapore has a well run efficient Metro system called the MRT, linking large areas of the city. Like most things in Singapore, it's clean, reliable and very modern.
