The MRT network is the most convenient and quickest way of getting around the island. Stops are frequent and it will give passengers an idea of the lesser-known areas of Singapore. Undoubtedly popular, this service is as synonymous as the weather, to Singaporeans. Train operations start from 5.30 a.m and ends about midnight. However, it is advised to check with the station masters first as some lines end earlier. Traveling on the MRT is cheap, with rides ranging from S$0.80 to a maximum of S$1.80. The Ez-link cards, which is tapped upon every entry and exit of the stations, has a S$15.00 stored value with a refundable $3 deposit.  Available at every train station, this card doubles up its function with the public buses as well.
