Same here. Just got the TransitLink email.

So the latest sequence is as follows :

1. Sign up for the pilot run via your MasterCard debit/credit card's issuing bank

2. ABT Transit link will send an email to you asking you to " activate" your account.

3. TransitLink will then send to you an email asking you to go to any of the GTMs in any train station. Place your card on the reader and follow the onscreen instructions to physically activate your MasterCard.


Just got an email from transitlink



I suspect they need to see the card at a GTM to deactivate its EZlink CAN number to avoid double charging at the gate. I hope this does not break EZlink at other vendors...

At the top up machine if I'm not wrong, you are able to default whichever payment you preferred

Does 'deactivation' mean that Ezlink function can't be used at all or only at bus/MRT.

If at all - the what's the point of such 'innovation'?

Well it worked for my POSB Mastercard debit, but didn't show the journey cost, just "Bank card usage"

Signed up via UOB website but received nothing to date. Have to manually do it via Transitlink's page instead.

Guys, for the DBS everyd card, only the 1st 3 SMRT rides are free right?
After that I should move on to the Maybank or the cimb cc?
