Rail Network

This is the rail life

System Map

Today, more than 130 stations across five MRT lines span the island. This 200km system has over three million daily ridership. In addition, there are more than 40 stations across two LRT lines and this 28km system has over 200 thousand daily ridership. More networks  are being built to further expand rail coverage.

Complementing the rail system are the two Light Rapid Transit (LRT) systems in Bukit Panjang, and Sengkang and Punggol, which acts as a feeder service that brings commuters closer to their homes.

The train system is currently run by two public transport operators – SMRT Corporation Ltd (SMRT) and SBS Transit (SBS).

  • SMRT operates the North-South Line, East-West Line, Circle Line, Thomson-East Coast Line and the Bukit Panjang LRT. 
  • SBS operates the North East Line and the Downtown Line, and the Sengkang-Punggol LRT.

Why is there a need for longer train service intervals?

The longer train service intervals will provide more hours for our engineers to intensify and speed up maintenance and asset renewal works.

Commuters can look forward to increased train service reliability when these works are completed.

Commuters advised to plan ahead

Commuters are advised to check the departure times at affected MRT stations, or on SMRT’s website and social media platforms, in order to plan their journeys ahead of time.

Use a stored value card such as an ez-link or NETS Flashpay where fares are charged based on distance travelled. Alternatively, you may purchase a standard ticket at every train station.

You may also level up your public transport experience with SimplyGo! Use your Mastercard® or Visa contactless credit and debit cards, mobile wallets*, or NETS Tap contactless bank cards to pay for your train and bus fares, and skip top-ups altogether. Learn more.
