Tourists and locals hoping to visit the three wildlife parks in Mandai - the Singapore Zoo, Night Safari and River Safari - can now get there by hopping on a coach from the city.
The new service, called Safari Gate, was officially launched on Tuesday and is a collaboration between tour company Duck & Hippo and Wildlife Reserves Singapore, which owns the parks.
The coaches depart hourly from two locations, Suntec City and the Singapore Flyer, starting from 8.30am. They make 20 trips a day to the parks and back, with the last returning coach at 10.30pm. Each ride takes between 45 minutes and an hour.
One-way tickets cost $7 for an adult and $5 for a child, and do not include park admission charges.
