BUSES: SBS (Singapore bus service) was formed in July 1973 in an attempt to upgrade the standard of bus service. SBS was formed when 3 bus companies were merged; this joining of three companies marked the

The method of payment in busses is also very easy. The same card is used in busses as well, but the difference is that the card is inserted in to the vending machine.

Singapore's public transportation network in based on railways, cable cars and city buses. The railway system is well developed and includes what is referred to as "Mass Rapid Transport" (MRT). The MRT network consists of three lines, a total of 109 km worth of track and 67 stations. Three major lines connect various urban areas and an additional three light rail lines connect the MRT network to other neighbourhoods.

Provided that everything goes according to plan, Singapore's MRT network may be larger than the London Tube, thanks to massive expansion efforts currently under way and to be completed by 2030. If everything comes to fruition, Singapore's rail system will grow to 540km.

In addition to the rail network, Singapore's public bus system is even more extensive, with approximately 300 routes. The company that runs and maintains this network is called SMRT Buses Ltd and was formerly known as SBS Transit Limited.
