Tourist transport pass question

Hi, can the tourist transport pass be used from the airport to the centre and if so can the pass be bought at the airport? And is there a tourist info centre at the airport?

Hi,

Yes you can use that to take MRT to the City.

Cards are sold at the Airport Train Station (Transitlink office)

Finally, yes there's a tourist info centre at the airport.

Hi able58,

The Singapore Tourist Pass will allow you to enjoy unlimited travel on Singapore’s public transport system which includes the MRT, LRT and basic bus services. Thus, you will definitely be able to ride from Changi Airport MRT to any other stations in the network.

It can be purchased at several TransitLink Office and you will be able to purchase it at the Changi Airport TransitLink Office which is located at the MRT station itself.

There are Visitors Centres counter located in the arrival halls of the 3 terminals in Changi Airport.

Think how much public transport you are going to be using. For most visitor and locals alike, buying the EZlink prepaid card or individual tickets will work out cheaper.

Singaporeans are pretty good at saving money, even a few cents. It the tourist pass was good value for them, they would all be using it rather than a EZlink card.

Hi able58

Me and mum tried the Tourist pass. It is convenient though however,if you think you wont use MRT, LRT and public buses as much as you plan to, as Mankster said try to use EZlink card instead. We have realized that we have actually paid more than what we used and end up wasting money than saving from our trip. You're gonna pay S$20- S$26- S$30 for 1-2-3 days unlimited use respectively and will have S$10 refund if returned within 7days.

Hope this help. :)

Skip the tourist pass. A regular EZlink card will work out to be cheaper.
