Delivering a world-class transport service that is safe, reliable and customer-centric is at the heart of what we do.


We are Singapore’s iconic multi-modal public transport operator and our mass rapid transit and light rail systems connect seamlessly with our island-wide services, such as bus services.


Our transport network has played a vital role in the growth and development of the city state. Throughout our 30 years of service, we have connected communities and transformed the way people live, work and play.


As we embark on the next leg of our journey, we look forward to the boundless opportunities to continue Working For You.

Corporate Social Responsibility - 30 Years of Giving


In 2017, SMRT also commemorates 30 Years of Giving. Even as we charge ahead with our engineering, maintenance and operations, we are mindful of our commitment to society, and to work with our partners to lend a helping hand to those in need.

We are pleased to unveil our Gift of Mobility Fund at our SMRT 30 Years of Giving Appreciation Dinner, pledging $30 million in cash and kind over 10 years to aid those with mobility needs in our community.

Our Story, Our History

As part of our SG50 efforts, we developed an interactive e-book to chronicle how SMRT has grown over the years with Singapore. The e-book documents our beginnings, the expansion of our businesses, our challenges and our involvement with the community. The people who have been on this journey also reflect the personal experiences of our diverse workforce, past and present.

In 2017, the e-book was updated to reflect our 30 years of history. Check out our new edition of  Moving Stories here!
