MRT (Mass Rapid Transit)

The best thing about taking the MRT train to the city center is that it can help you save money. If you want to spend less, this is a good option to consider.

The most challenging aspect of using this transportation mode is likely the need to change MRT lines. The Changi line is a spur line that connects the Changi Airport station to the East-West (Green) line at Tanah Merah station. To reach your destination, you will need to transfer to a Green Line MRT train at Tanah Merah. From there, you can travel to many popular accommodations along this line, including Geylang (alight at Kallang or Lavender station), Bugis, City Hall, Raffles Place, and Chinatown (alight at Outram Park station).

WHERE TO FIND: The MRT station at Changi Airport is located in the basement of Terminal 2. No matter which terminal you arrive at (Terminal 1, 2, or 3), just follow the signs that say ‘Train to the City’ and you’ll find the station easily.

TRAVEL PASS: For your travel needs, you have the option to purchase either a single ride ticket or an EZ-Link card at MRT stations or Changi Recommends stores

COST: SGD 1.74 ($1.25) via EZ-Link card

TRAVEL TIME: 32 minutes (Changi to City Hall station)

MRT HOURS: 05:31 – 23:18 Mon to Sat; 05:59 – 00:06 Sun & Public Holidays

MRT SCHEDULE: Every 7 – 9 minutes during peak hours (08:00 – 09:00; 12:30 – 14:00; 19:30 – 22:15) and 12 – 13 minutes during off-peak hours.

NOTE: The fare for your MRT ride is calculated based on the total distance you travel, which means you won’t have to pay a boarding charge for each transfer you make during your trip
