MRT Travel Guide – Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix 2022


COVID-19 Safe Management Measures in Singapore

Singapore’s Ministry of Health (MOH) announced that from Aug 29, 2022, mask-wearing is optional in all settings except for healthcare facilities, residential care homes and ambulances, and public transport.

Although mandatory mask-wearing is removed in most settings, MOH encourages individuals to wear masks in crowded places or when visiting or interacting with vulnerable persons.

Mask-wearing is still required at underground MRT station platforms and onboard MRT trains.

Please refer to the official COVID-19 Advisory by Singapore Grand Prix for more information.

Using the MRT to Travel from Changi Airport to the City

Not to be confused with the inter-terminal Changi Airport Skytrain system, the CG 2 Changi Airport MRT station is linked to the three main terminals (1/2/3) of the airport.

To get to the City, commuters may take a train to EW 4 CG Tanah Merah MRT station and alight, then transfer to the westbound train towards EW 33 Tuas Link MRT station.

Do take note of the in-train announcements and information systems which will guide you to the correct platform to board the City-bound train.

Public Transport Fares & MRT Ticketing Information

In Singapore, the travel fares on buses and trains are charged according to the total distance travelled in a journey.

Using the unlimited Singapore Tourist Pass or a stored-value travel card, like the EZ-Link card, are the two most common ways to pay for your public transport fares in the network.

However, commuters can also opt to use SimplyGo, effectively allowing you to tap and pay for your travel fares, like how you would tap and pay at an offline retail store.

Commuters can use MasterCard/Visa contactless credit/debit cards or mobile wallets, such as Apple Pay, Fitbit Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay, across the public transport network.

Common Etiquettes When Travelling on the Singapore MRT

Singaporeans usually stand on the left side when on the escalator, allowing walking commuters to go past the right side.

Us locals also love queueing up for almost everything, and that includes queueing up before boarding and boarding only when passengers have alighted from the train.

If you have noticed, there are no rubbish bins around the Singapore MRT network, so you are advised to keep your litter until you alight and dispose of it outside of the train station.

No eating or drinking is also allowed onboard MRT trains and at MRT stations, as this helps to ensure that the network stays clean and safe (from liquid spillage falls) for other commuters.

Nearest MRT Station to Food Centres Around the City

Being a multi-racial, multi-lingual and multi-religious society, there are diverse varieties of foods in Singapore, with endless options to choose from.

It is common to have a meal at a hawker food centre in Singapore, and it is also great that various MRT stations are conveniently located nearby these food centres!

During the 2019 Singapore Grand Prix, trackside engineers from the Mercedes-AMG F1 Team had even gone to the Newton Food Centre for some curry as a “special winning tradition”.

Please refer to the official Food & Beverage listing for F&B options within the circuit park.

MRT Train Service Operating Hours

The train service operating hours have been extended for the three-day Singapore Grand Prix race weekend from Sep 30 to Oct 2, 2022.

We advise commuters to be at the station at least 15 to 20 minutes before the last train departs for additional leeway due to increased passenger traffic and travel demand.

Please note that all Singapore MRT trains are fully automated and that the last trains will depart strictly according to schedule.
