What isTransitLink?

Land Transport Authority (LTA) and TransitLink have partnered with the various payment schemes to introduce contactless payments on trains and buses.

With SimplyGo, you can use your contactless bank cards% or Mastercard/Visa cards added to the mobile wallet# immediately* for fare payments. No registration or application is required!

You can simply take the card out of your wallet, tap and go. You will no longer have to make upfront top-ups or carry a separate travel card, and your train and bus fares will be processed and charged to your bank account or credit/debit card bill directly.

From 28 January 2021, commuters will also be able to update their current EZ-link cards+ or purchase a new account-based EZ-Link card to be onboard SimplyGo.

fee of $0.60 will be applicable per day of use for fare payment when using foreign-issued
