Yes assuming they have and ABT account with the card registered. Things are better off simply purchasing a Pre-paid card and using it. The EZ-Link cards have so much more potential in it. They can even follow the route Suica takes and even let them digitalize the cards into payment systems like Apple Pay or even Android Pay. Then users can top up on the go with their own payment.

Sure they are far-sighted but I believe it was more of pressure that caused them to run with the most difficult route ever. Getting banks to hop onto your system requires a lot of convincing and a lot more technical difficulties in the back end to cater for the tons of system. Might as well work with systems already established like Apple Pay and Android Pay who is already working with So many banks.
comparing ezlink and NETS flashpay, i would say flashpay got more potential.
most of the NETS terminals (those we use atm card with pin long time ago) now come with flashpay contactless reader on top. this means most of the shops accepting NETS already got flashpay reader.

flashpay on apple pay is unlikely cuz apple won't add this feature for small market. flashpay on samsung pay can be done, similar to hk smart octopus card.
but... when there is NETS FlashPay on Samsung Pay, make sure the mrt/bus readers are all fixed and ready to read phone/watch nfc correctly without errors. else the physical flashpay card is invalidated and the mobile flashpay keeps getting card failed error... lol.

Yeah, might test bus later. I actually use a corporate pass where my company pays for all my PT travels so not a lot of incentive to keep playing this thing

Video got cut but detection was fast with AW3 on a Go-Ahead S’pore bus. Given that this is a newly registered card, their ops are downloading the list of allowed cards nicely (have encountered hit-and-miss on buses before using physical MasterCard under ABT).

it's quite weird you have hit and miss with physical Mastercard ABT, to me Physical Mastercard abt is more reliable........the consistent rate is like 99.5%.........of course it's not that fast

you cut in the middle or front.....it's looks as if less than 0.5s

the question is....are you able to have consistently tap for more than a week

just curious, how did you take those video??? body cam? or using a phone to record?

record with phone. i think watch is consistent due to a clear defined area for tapping, whereas with phone it can be a hit and miss. will try phone with another device and test. anyway not worth using it for a week as i have a corporate cepas card

you mean clear defined area on the watch or on the Bus reader?

i guess you would be able to test then they start the trial for cepas as well

i tried using my apple watch yesterday and it was unsuccessful.
the amount of stares from holding the line behind is something that can be felt.
i quickly take out my physical card and used it instead.
Notice some side glares and some making the "tsk" sound. LoL

after which, i noticed my apple watch no longer unlocks when i unlock my phone.
so i manually key in the passcode and the watch is in a "hang" state.
no updates nor notifications came in.
i have to force shut down and reboot my watch.

I guess the pay app on watch just got stuck in the background since my last tap.
how long were you trying to attract those glare and "tsk" sound lol~

it's funny how i never encounter those when i tried.....maybe i am deaf to the surrounding

Start the trial for cepas?

You can already add cepas card, be it flash pay or ezlink to the portal and monitor the statement and monthly expenditure related to transit. Its already live since it appeared.

you mean clear defined area on the watch or on the Bus reader?

i guess you would be able to test then they start the trial for cepas as well

Below EWL station but near entrance to CCL. Remember to show this on your phone screen so they know what you want.
