Singapore has an efficient transportation network of taxis, buses and the modern mass rapid transit system (MRT) which ensures that getting from one place to another is hassle-free and extremely affordable.
Airport Shuttle Service
Travelers looking for a speedy and affordable transport option that brings you to the door step of your hotel are recommended to take the Airport Shuttle Service which charges based on headcount.
The Airport Shuttle Service uses a 9-seater executive coach and it currently serves almost all hotels in Singapore with the exception of Changi Village hotel and hotels on the Sentosa Island. This service is available 24hrs daily, and passengers are required to make booking at the counters in the Arrival Halls of Terminals 1, 2 & 3, and Budget Terminal.
Over 15,000 air-conditioned cabs ply local roads and provide comfortable, hassle-free travel at a very reasonable cost. They can be flagged down 24 hours a day on most roads, with well-marked taxi-stands available outside most major shopping centres and hotels. At Singapore Changi Airport, the taxi stand is located just outside the Arrival Hall on Level 1 in Terminal 1 and at the end of the Arrival Hall on Level 1 in Terminal 2 (South Wing).
Now you can call for a cab from any of the taxi firms with just one convenient number. Just call 6-3425-222 or tap out the alphabetical prompter 6-DIAL-CAB, and you will be channeled to all the taxi firms' Call Centre’s, one at a time. All taxis are metered.
