Using Ez-link Card to ride MRT and Bus Jul 18, 2010
we often wonder how to ride a bus and MRT in Singapore. If we took the MRT more easily because there are vending machines at every MRT station. We just insert an amount of money in accordance with the destination where we will go. Vending machines are very clear in explaining how to use it.

Very different if we took the bus in Singapore. although at every bus stop already have information about distance and costs, that would still be very confusing for foreigners and as to go as a group. If you take the bus then we must provide appropriate money and put it into the box after the entrance door. If the money is excessive then there is no return.

the most easy and cheap to ride the bus and MRT is to use the EZ-link card. By using the card a cheaper rate than the one way card or direct payment, and its use is very simple:

in MRT: everytime we go in the entrance gate we hold the card into the sensor gate and when we reached the destination gate we hold that card again at the exit gate sensors.

on the Bus: go into bus, find the sensor machine and approach EZ card into the machine. If we're going to get off the bus, approach the card into the machine. Before you alight, push the red button on the pole to let the driver stop the bus.
