Getting to Clementi Stadium using MRT
Step 1: Find the closest MRT station.
Booking a room close to a station will help you to cut down on taxi fees, ride-hailing, and parking while in Singapore. Getting to Clementi Stadium via MRT will also be faster without unnecessary headaches along the way.
Singaporeans and permanent residents likely already have a metro station that they use all the time to access different city areas.
Tourists, however, should look for a place to stay that is close to attractions, malls, and preferable an MRT station.
Here are two examples:
JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach – 2 minutes to Esplanade Station
Conrad Centennial Singapore– 2 minutes from Promenade Station
Both of these properties receive positive review scores and are minutes away from their neighbouring stations.
Step 2: Identify the lines, transfers and closest MRT station to Clementi Stadium.
The closest and most convenient station to Clementi Stadium is Clementi Station (EW23).
It is located along the East-West Line and is shown in Green colour on Singapore’s metro map.
Step 3: Buy an MRT card for your trip to Clementi Stadium.
There are two main forms of metro cards for getting to Clementi Stadium via MRT:
Stored Value Cards – We used one of these while discovering how to get to Clementi Stadium by MRT. Once you buy one, you can use them on both buses and trains throughout Singapore. The cash balance on your account will automatically get adjusted every time you go somewhere and tap out of the transport system.
Singapore Tourist Passes – These work similarly to stored-value cards, except that they offer holders unlimited bus and train trips for a set number of days. They usually work for short 1-3 day stays in Singapore. As their name suggests, Tourist Passes are reserved for visitors to the city. You could visit Clementi Stadium and then visit a whole pile of other points of interest for a set price.
The potential downside of using a Tourist Pass is that you need to travel a lot to save money with the card. We recommend them to visitors with busy plans in the city.
Step 4: Ride the MRT to Clementi Station (EW23) via the East-West (Green) Line.
