Facing very consistent failure from readers on buses (be it the unit near the driverís console/away). Also experiencing significant lag when tapping at MRT gantries. So am probably gonna switch back to physical card.

The strange thing is that it was working reliably for me at the same bus services & train lines for a good few days. Itís like the readers collectively receive new firmware/bulk data to validate my card & hence failing...
Siao liao...today I reverted to using physical card at bus & MRT readers...dunno whether psychological or what, there is lag in reading my real card as well. & furthermore Iím the sort that takes out the actual card from wallet & ensure the card is in full physical contact with the reader.

Iím now suspecting along the chain of detection, reading & validation, some new data component has been introduced that dramatically extends the process, be it physical or virtual card.
