Traveling is one of the most exciting, fulfilling and satisfying things that one can do, but let’s face it- the amount of planning required to pull off a successful trip can sometimes be mind-boggling. There are too many things to check and verify and too many people to coordinate with. Do we need visas? Is its visa on arrival? What does custom allow? Which hotel is the best value for money? What are the places that you should definitely visit? When are they open? How to get there?
The questions are endless and the pursuit of the answers are tiring. If you’re planning a visit to Singapore, you’re probably going to do all of this too, save one. The question of ‘How to get there?’ is at least not going to be something that you have to worry about a lot. Singapore’s tourist-friendly nature makes sure of that.
Singapore’s shuttle bus service is one of the best things that has happened to the city and comes as a boon to travelers and tourists. Shuttle buses are available from the moment you reach Singapore, i.e. from the airport. There are a number of shuttle services like- city shuttle, Changi business park shuttle and Shuttle service going to TFT.
The city shuttle is the one that will take you to most of the hotels at a rate of 9 SGD per adult and 6 SGD per child. During peak times, there is a shuttle bus that departs from the airport every 15 minutes.
Apart from the shuttle services from the airport, shuttle buses ply throughout the city. If you’re planning to use a lot of these buses, the best thing to do would be to get a Singapore Tourist Pass. It ensures hassle-free travel for you because all you need to do is tap the card on the card reader that is placed beside the driver when you hop on and when you hop off the bus. You can also use this pass for paying for your MRT or LRT rides.
The bus stops mention the buses that will make a stop there, making it easy for tourists. For those who want to be informed about expected time of arrivals, timetables and bus routes can also use mobile apps like SG Buses and My Transport that get data from the Land Transport Authority of Singapore to predict ETA and seating capacity.
Traveling in Singapore is really a breeze thanks to the shuttle buses that ply across the city.
