Since the launch of the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) rail system in 1987, commuters in Singapore enjoy a comprehensive public transport network. There are also the Light Rapid Transit (LRT) systems that link MRT stations within the HDB housing estates.
The Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) has 5 lines panning the island - the North-South (red) line, the North-East (purple) line, the East-West (green) line, the Circle (orange) line and the Downtown (blue) line.
For a fully automated service into the heartlands, the Light Rapid Transit (LRT) system currently spans 43 stations, serving Bukit Panjang (BPLRT), Sengkang (SKLRT), and Punggol (PGLRT).
