In Macau, one gets a free shuttle bus to almost any major casino from almost any part of the city. But then, Macau is a casino city and Singapore is not. There are only two casinos in Singapore, one of which is at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) one level below the Universal Studios Theme Park. RWS casino is open 24 hours a day but the only travel option to get there or to get out of there will be a public taxi unless one is travelling within the MRT working hours. Trust me it matters, particularly after having a bad day at the casino, it would hurt your sentiment even more if you have to pay another dozen Singapore Dollars to get back to your hotel. So a smart thing to do will be to get there early and plan your exit by 11.00pm and another 15 minutes earlier if you have kept your bag or other stuff at their Locker Rental Station. Keep reading for the fare, timings and pickup-drop details & directions about this service and also about a weekend late night service that operates between 11.30pm and 2.00am...
