Singapore MRT Info
The mass rapid transit system of Singapore is an extensive transit system that extends across the city-state. It serves Singapore residents and tourists everyday, from 5.30 a.m. to 1 a.m. During rush hour, a new train arrives every two minutes; at other times, every 6 minutes. The MRT has longer service hours during Fridays, holidays or festive periods like the Chinese New Year.
In 2014, the MRT system had about 2.9 million passengers per day, but it is still not the largest transport system in the city-state: Singaporean buses had 3.7 million passengers daily. The MRT network is 153.7 kilometres long with 113 stations. An additional system contributes to MRT’s seamless transportation services, a Light Rail Transit network in Bukit Panjang, Sengkang and Punggol. It links MRT stations with HDB public housing estates. The MRT has changed a lot over the years.

Plans with MRT
Urban planners had already spoken about a rail-based transport system in 1967. During these years, the Housing Development Board constructed more than 50,000 housing units.
Politicians said that a bus-only system would be less expensive. However, Lee Kuan Yew, Prime Minister of Singapore, said it would not be a good option, since it would take up road space in a land-scarce country. They started building the first part of MRT in 1983. They finished by the fall of 1987.
The MRT’s first section connected Yio Chu Kang and Toa Payoh. It is the second oldest metro system of Southeast Asia; the oldest one is the LRT System of Manila. Singapore needed a comprehensive rail network to support its population, so the Land Transport Authority, a statutory board of the Government of Singapore, developed the MRT system through the years. It was planned to be and is a major part of the public transport system of Singapore.
