Tour of the Underground in Singapore
• Tour of the subway in Singapore
Today, we look at the Singapore subway. It is bright, clean, modern, but very uncomfortable. Maybe I just had bad luck with the routes, but less than two transplants never worked.
Singapore subway - just a cheap way to get around the city. This subway is relatively young, it appeared in the late 1980s. By the way, Singapore is unique in that the subway here - the main transport in the state.

entrance to the station.
Or this ... By the way, each station has a number! It is very convenient to navigate.
Tickets are only sold in vending machines. The cost of travel from 1.5 to 4 dollars.
Instead of tickets - a plastic card. It pays bail - $ 1. After the trip, it can be put into the machine and return the deposit. Unfortunately, the card can not be recharged. That is, every time we have to take it and charge a new one. Also, the machine does not accept large bills. If you do not have the little things - you need to exchange the box office. If you plan to explore Singapore for a long time, I recommend to buy a travel card "EZ-Link". Using this card, reduce the cost of the fare on the subway. In addition, the card can pay in buses, or even pay for purchases in stores. Add funds to the card, it is necessary in kiosks or in the sale of cards phones.
The lobby is spacious and bright.
stations are almost all the same ...
Very similar to Kuala Lumpur, only without commercials, and everything is clean.

Tunnel. Incidentally, one of the reasons for the ban in this country is associated with gum subway. Previously, such strict rules regarding the gum was not until the automatic metro. Locals gum cleave to the closing door sensors. Sensors signaled obstacle and train doors could not be closed, which naturally entailed a failure in the train schedule. We solved the problem radically hard and fast - banned chewing gum.
The majority of ground stations.
In all underground stations have an elevator.
And of course a toilet.
