The rapid transit system is the best way to get around if you have a stop over in Singapore you can buy a couple days pass that allows you to use all the lines. When you return the rapid transit card you get a refund.

I took the metro and bus. No problem getting around. Easy to follow where to go. Google maps tells you what metro line and bus lines to take.

Yes. If you do purchase the card you should hold on to it for your next trip. The remaining credit will be valid and your card can be recharged.

Yes, you can purchase the SMRT ticket at the airport. I strongly suggest you purchase the pass that locals purchase ..not the tourist 1/2/3 day passes. This way you will only pay for trips you use
