Hello again Juicylady,

Just go to the ticketing counter if you'd like to purchase a stored value EZ-Link pass. There'll be a staff there who'd tell you exactly how much deposit/card charge you'll have to pay and will top up the EZ-Link pass accordingly (usually in denominations f S$10).

If you're just using the MRT occasionally and do not want to pay for the card charge of $5, then just make your way to any of the ticketing machines at the train station. Select "Buy Ticket", then select your destination (it's a touch-screen kind) and they'll tell you how much you'd have to pay. Upon arrival at your destination station, don't forget to go back to the ticketing machine and obtain your $1 deposit refund.

Trust this info would help. No worries .....
