Singapore LTA extends contactless Visa payments

First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) is to extend its SimplyGo system to allow commuters to pay for transport via Visa contactless cards from 6 June.

The move follows an initial launch in which SimplyGo was made available for commuters using Mastercard in March.

Yeo Teck Guan, LTA senior group director, public transport, says: “We are seeing a steady uptake in usage since its launch, with an average of over 120,000 daily trips. With the inclusion of Visa, more commuters will benefit,”

Users who have EZ-Link/NETS FlashPay functionality built into their cards will need to visit a general ticketing machine to switch their payment mode to bank card.
