Check out our guide on what to see, do and eat in Singapore!
Taxis are readily available in Singapore. For tourists, the most convenient mode of transportation will be by cab.
Hailing a taxi in Singapore is relatively easy, just stand safely by the kerb-side and stick your arm out! However, do note that there are some places that taxis are not allowed to stop to pick up or alight passengers in Singapore. They risk getting a fine of up to S$200!
Roads with bus lanes during bus lane operation hours, lanes with double zigzag lines, bus stops and roads in CBD where buses ply are strictly no stopping zones for taxis, although we still do see people trying to hail taxis from bus stops. If youâre lucky, you might get a brave taxi driver willing to take the risk, but more often than not, you will be left disappointed.
To get a taxi in places like these, look for the taxi stands or driveways of buildings. Alternatively, you can walk to a stretch of road with normal lane markings, ie. Not bus lanes, no red lines, no zig-zag lines, no yellow boxes etc. Just normal double yellow lines by the kerb with white lanes markings.
When does it get hard to hail a taxi?
Typically, it can beÂ difficult to find a taxi when it rains, during peak hours (8-9 am, 6-8 pm). When travelling to the airport during these times, make sure you have an advanced booking or sufficient time on your hands to wait.
There are several surcharges you may incur.
