Not sure what are the peak hours but expect to queue if you are at waterfront station. Monorail was as fast as it could. No jam at all. I find it impressive that they have ushers who wave to u as u pass by the station.

The Sentosa Express provides convenient mode of transportation from Vivo city to/from the island, and also from the north of the island (where Resort World Sentosa is located) to the south where the beaches are located. We've found the ride to be smooth, and service frequent enough that we didn't have to wait for long.

The easiest way to reach certain places of sentosa is the sentosa express. Very quick. And can see a nice view. Have four stops and it can cover all the places.

Sentosa Express is a decent way of transportation on Sentosa Island. Coming from Singapore take MRT (purple line) until Harbour front. You'll arrive at Vivo shopping mall where you go all the way up to the top Level to buy a ticket for 4 S$. Trains run very frequently and we never had to wait long. Hard Rock Cafe, Universal...

An efficient way to roam around sentosa specially for those with small kids that are too tired to walk from one station to another. Riding sentosa express make it easier and convenient for tourist. They have a good systematic way in handling loading and unloading passengers.

This is a small train that either goes inbound or outbound to Sentosa Island. These run very frequently, and thanks to the staff, fill quickly but not over filled. These are accessible to strollers and wheelchairs. These trains take to from one end of the island into the main shopping center just over the boardwalk.

Easy cheap transport system to get into Sentosa island with aircon & covered carriages. Not very good if it gets crowded, only 2 small carriages, prepare for long queue.
