Considering that PayPass works very similarly to NFC payments on phones, I wonder if Apple/Android Pay will actually work on day one. Then the "official" implementation might be Express Transit.

This graphic confirms that mobile payment will be added later.
Let's hope it will come to us sooner!

When ABT works with Mastercard Paypass, then it should also work with Visa Paywave as well since they are both the same technology from EMV standards.

By "right" logicially speaking based on theory, Apple/Android/Samsung Pay integrated fully with our transport should work from the start as it emit the same NFC frequency when we accidentally put our phone near it. I think it a matter of time, just that we are slowly in adopting such technology as LTA haven't talk with these 3 major mobile solution manufacturers to enable it with the hardware/software side.

As you see London Tube (Apple Pay which is just pure NFC) and Japan FeliCa (Japan NFC system) work on their transport with Japan verison of their iPhone 7/7+ and even Korea (NFC T-money system) works with Samsung Pay on their Galaxy phones & Gear S2/S3 watches for transport and ATM withdraw (seen a lot in Korea drama)

Got confirmation from Transitlink Admins on FB messenger that ABT will only work with physical cards at launch. No word on mobile yet.

The graphic mentions it'll come later. Right now it's just a trial, so currently not supported.

No difference with using ezReload ma, when value is low then auto topup. I'll stick to the ezReload.

It's the same logic for Mastercard and Ez-reload, therefore we are still behind countries like S.Korea.

When we can use our phone to tap (no need NFC SIM) purely via Apple/Android/Samsung Pay and smartwatch to tap (Apple watch & gear S3) then it's the real game changer, something that korea can do with Samsung Pay (even ATM withdraw as their ATM machine have NFC terminal) can do since 2014.
