Taxis: Additionally, you could easily flag taxis, all of which are thankfully metered. We suggest using which is dirt cheap than the metered Taxis in Singapore.
However, if you are in group of 3-4; yes, we might suggest you to just use Grab cab or even taxi if you are travelling to some places. It can be more cost and time efficient. However, again, it depends on the distance as well. If you are really on budget, some places like Singapore Zoo will cost your around $20-25 bucks from city area for 3-4 pax. If you take train, follow by bus; it might cost you less than $3 per person. However, time wise, using Grab will be faster.
