By Road

     Singapore is a city state and of mainly urban landscape, thus well-paved Roads link you to all parts of Singapore island. Owning a car and parking is considerably  expensive.

     Singapore Land Transport Authority - Singapore practices a Vehicle Quota System (implemented on 1 May 1990). Under this system, LTA determines the number of new vehicles allowed for registration while the market determines the price of owning a vehicle.

Cars    All motorists will have to pay a fee for driving into and out of Singapore. If you drive a Singapore-registered vehicle, you pay tolls using the Cash card. If you drive a foreign-registered vehicle, you have to pay tolls and a vehicle entry permit (VEP) using the Autopass Card. Foreigners will find it a hassle and costly to drive a foreign-registered or Malaysian vehicle into Singapore

Singapore citizens, all permanent residents, student pass holders and residents of Singapore are NOT allowed to use or keep their foreign-registered cars and motorcycles in Singapore

Buses    Buses are efficient and economical and takes you to all parts of Singapore
