What is the Account-Based Ticketing (ABT) pilot?
Currently, NETS contactless cards are undergoing an Account-Based Ticketing (ABT) pilot to test their readiness for the SimplyGo system. After a successful trial, NETS contactless cards will be available to all commuters as a fare payment option.
During the ABT pilot, only Singapore-issued NETS contactless bank cards will be accepted. There will be no need for upfront top-ups when using NETS contactless bank cards for fare payments.
Similar to any NETS contactless purchase, bus and train transactions will be processed, accumulated and charged to the NETS contactless bank card. Commuters will be able to view their journey and fare history via the TransitLink SimplyGo Portal or TL SimplyGo mobile app.
How do I participate in this pilot launch?
NETS contactless cardholders can register for a SimplyGo account and add their NETS contactless bank card via the TransitLink SimplyGo Portal or TL SimplyGo mobile app to participate in the pilot.
