Singapore’s transportation system has been rated as the second best in the world. Commuting from one part of Singapore to another is a breeze with 3 modes of transport – Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), buses and taxis that are easily accessible at any part of the city. The extensive rail network means that most of Singapore’s key attractions are within walking distance from an MRT station. As the transport system is designed with a diverse community in mind, major train and bus stations have incorporated handicap-friendly facilities to make every journey a pleasant one.
