Tap & Pay for Train & Bus Rides with Contactless Card

What is Account-Based Ticketing (ABT)?

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

ABT enables commuters to use their credit or debit cards with contactless function for fare payments. There will be no need for upfront top-ups and your train and bus fares will be processed and charged to your credit or debit card bill.



What are the benefits of ABT?

You would be able to enjoy the convenience of tracking your journey and fare history via the TransitLink ABT Portal or TransitLink mobile app. Other services on the Portal include submitting of travel claims and viewing of claim status.

For contactless credit and debit cardholders, there is no need for a separate transit card and no more top-ups are required.
