If you are arriving in Singapore at Changi Airport who wish to travel by rail, take the East West Line, which runs across the city center and intersects with each of the other lines that cross the city. Purchase a ticket at the station for a single trip on the MRT or, if you plan to make several trips, buy a one-, two- or three-day Singapore Tourist Pass, which allows you unlimited travel on the MRT and the city's basic bus service. Buy the pass at TransitLink Ticket Offices located in a number of MRT stations, including Changi Airport, Chinatown and HarbourFront.
