Singtel today announced that customers can pay for their MRT, LRT and bus rides with Singtel’s Transit NFC SIM which will be available late next month. The Transit NFC SIM will enable commuters to pay for public transit rides using just their NFC mobile phones. 

This expanded mobile payment function further enhances Singtel’s Dash app, which has the largest mobile payment merchant network in Singapore. 

The largest mobile operator in Singapore has jointly developed the solution with the Land Transport Authority (LTA), the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) and EZ-Link.

Gan Siok Hoon, Vice President of mCommerce, Consumer Singapore, Singtel 
We are pleased to offer the added convenience of mobile payments on buses, MRT and LRT. With customers already paying for their Comfort and CityCab taxi rides with our popular Dash app, they can now truly enjoy a seamless payment experience in their daily commutes.
