Singapore Mass Rapid Transit (SMRT) is responsible for the operation of three main train lines: the North South Line, which runs from Marina Bay Station to Jurong East via Woodlands Station, the East West Line which leaves from Pasir Ris for Joo Koon Station and the Circle Line trains, which run between Dhoby Ghaut and Harbour Front Stations. From here a train extension also runs to Marina Bay Station, where several popular tourist attractions are based and where some of the city’s new financial business district is currently being constructed.
Marina Bay Sands is also home to an Integrated Resort, the Suntec City complex, the Raffles City Shopping Centre and the Esplanade, another huge area for entertainment and shopping.
Another new Downtown MRT train line will eventually open in 2013, adding another 34 km to Singapore’s rail network and providing even better public transport for commuters and tourists.
