More than 194km of track span across the island, connecting 138 stations on 5 MRT and 3 LRT lines. Together, over 2.9 million trips are made daily across Singapore's rail network.
The North South Line and East West Line were the first two Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) lines in Singapore.
The rail network later expanded, with extensions to existing lines, the Light Rail Transit (LRT) lines in Bukit Panjang, Sengkang and Punggol, then the fully automated underground lines: the North East Line, Circle Line, and Downtown Line phases 1 and 2.
In the coming years, several new lines and stations will open, including the rest of the Downtown Line, the Thomson-East Coast Line, Jurong Region Line, Cross Island Line, the East West Line extension to Tuas, Canberra station on the North South Line, the sixth stage of the Circle Line, and the North East Line extension to Punggol North.
There are other rail lines in Singapore which are not part of the public transport network. These rail lines move passengers within a privately-managed area, and are not regulated by the Public Transport Council.
