Current Situation:

Singapore has won the title of the World's Best Airport for 6 years in a row, with a high passenger flow of 65.63 million in 2018. It was no doubt that I was amazed by the comfort and service in the airport. However, there is no direct and fast link between the Airport and the City.

Although I've read about some information about Singapore's Land Transport before arriving here for a 3-day trip, please correct me should I make any errors.

Terminals 1,2,3 are linked to the MRT station while Terminal 4 is not. Let us use Promenade MRT as the City Centre, since many hotels are located there.

Passengers taking the MRT which operates at a frequency of 12 minutes need to transfer to a main line train at Tanah Merah to reach the city. Journey Time is approximately 45minutes (including transfer)

Passengers at Terminal 4 may choose bus 36, the only bus service that uses the East Coast Expressway after leaving Changi Airport, or take a shuttle bus to Terminal 2 and transfer to the MRT Changi Line. Bus 36 uses a small sector of the expressway, calls at 13 stops at Marine Parade Town, before hitting the expressway again and reaching the city, making the journey time around 1 hour.

In contrast, driving from Changi Airport to Promenade takes 23 minutes (17km), almost half the time of the MRT.

As a tourist, I feel that the travelling time is too long for a short distance, especially if it is connected to a major transport hub. Generally, other developed nations I've visited such as Hong Kong and Japan have Airport Express Buses and Trains.

The change:

Bus services that utilise the entire sector of the expressway from the Airport to the City could be established, essentially creating an Airport Express Service for other tourists. The buses utilised could be of high capacity, and with luggage racks. The route could call at all 4 terminals, before stopping at Promenade MRT Station, and the various landmarks and hotels in the vicinity. This Airport Express Bus service could greatly ease connectivity from the Airport to the City for many tourists to come. Also, if possible, trains could run from Changi Airport directly to the main line, reducing the hassle of train transfer as some passengers' luggage are really heavy! I'm looking forward to improvements in Singapore's Land Transport. Wishing Singapore All the Best!
