Singtel this week announced the extension of its Dash Mobile Wallet as contactless payment for bus and train rides in Singapore.

Dash customers can enjoy a hassle-free commuting experience across buses, trains and taxis, as part of the Land Transport Authority’s SimplyGo initiative which enables commuters to use their mobile wallets or contactless cards on transit without the need for top-ups.

Customers can easily ‘Dash & Ride’ on buses and trains once they have downloaded the latest version of the Dash app from the Google Play Store or Apple’s App Store. All they need is to tap and pay with their NFC-enabled Android phone with the Dash app, iPhone or Apple Watch with Apple Pay. As a launch promotion, Dash users can enjoy 50% cashback on bus and train rides in June and July 2019.

Singtel also announced a strategic partnership with ComfortDelGro Taxi, Singapore’s leading taxi company with a 12,000 strong fleet that will further enhance the commute experience for Dash users in Singapore.

Currently, Dash users can already pay for their taxi rides via QR code without administrative fees, and enjoy 5% cashback on Comfort and CityCab taxis. Singtel and ComfortDelGro Taxi are now taking this collaboration a step further with the development of in-app taxi booking functions on the Singtel Dash app by end 2019.

We’ve offered customers cashless payments for taxi rides since launch. Today, we’re pleased to extend this convenience to all modes of public transport with the Dash Visa Virtual Account so customers can enjoy a simpler and smoother commute as they go about their day.
