Fares & Claims


All bus, MRT and LRT commuters are charged a fare according to the total distance travelled on each mode of transport. With the introduction of distance fares, you can make transfers without having to pay a boarding charge for every transfer that makes up your journey.

PTC has introduced a set of tougher measures to further deter bus and train fare evasion. Wef 29 Feb, commuters who do not pay or underpay their fares on public bus and train services will have to pay a higher penalty fee. Please refer to the Public Transport Council’s enforcement guidelines here.

Similarly, Taxi customers are charged metered fares based on distance travelled, with different flag down rates and other applicable surcharges.

Train Fares

With distance-based fares, fares are calculated based on the shortest travel path. Please click here for train and bus fares.

To calculate train fares, click here.

Bus Fares

Fares are calculated on a journey basis. There are no boarding or transfer charges. Please click here for train and bus fares.

To use bus fare calculator, click here.

If you would like to pay by cash, you may check for the correct fare on the fare chart at the information poster at the bus stop before boarding the bus. Do place the exact fare into the farebox as no change will be given. Upon paying for your fare by cash, a bus ticket will be dispensed from the ticket dispenser for you. Please do hold on to your ticket till the end of your bus ride as you would require it as proof of fare payment if a ticket inspector were to board the bus.

Alternatively, if you would like a cheaper, convenient and cashless way to pay for your bus fares, do consider getting a stored value card. If you would like to find out more, click here.
