Buying a Tourist Pass is a cost-effective way for foreigners to explore Singapore.
With the Pass, you receive unlimited rides on buses and trains, an excellent option for individuals who plan to make multiple trips over a three-day period. For those who are not expecting to use the MRT much, a Stored Value Card is the ideal solution.
These cards do not provide unlimited rides.
Instead, when you leave the public transport system (buses, MRT, LRT) the fare will be taken from your balance. Tourist Passes are only accessible to foreign guests in Singapore, whereas anyone can use a Stored Value Card.
