So means we can add card as express transit but it will not work without authentication?
For my case - Yes .. when I tap my iPhone XS on the gantry .. Apple Pay prompt to double press the side button and authenticate

This is most likely because the iPhone doesn’t detect our local Fare Reader as a “Fare Reader” it treats them like any other payment terminal.

LTA will probably need to push an update out to their card readers. Such that when the iPhones are brought near the fare readers they identify themselves as such.

Until then. We'll be stuck with authenticating before making payments.

On Apple's website:

Express Transit with Apple Pay is currently in beta in Beijing and Shanghai.
I don't think it works in Singapore yet.

Same too. Placed my phone at the gantry and it prompts me to double click on the side button to enable Apple Pay.

I guess the gantry is in %u201CPayment%u201D mode instead of %u201CTransit%u201D mode.

Tested at Changi Airport. Doesn't work. Shows my default purchase card (UOB Visa) instead of SAFRA Debit too.

Why donít we flood them with feedback? Is there a link? Thereís a chance they may not know of this.

We need to wait for banks and LTA to work together in order to enable express transit.

Ooo good catch. Been able to set my SCB and POSB, so at least we know the issue lies with LTA.

Supported banks card can be added all along. Now need to wait for LTA to work with Apple to open up Express Transit.

Possible, like you add same card to your phone and your mom's phone and travel together. Each device will have it's own journey
