When traveling around Singapore, MRT is the most common mode of transportation. Besides being cheaper compared to other modes of transport such as offline and online taxis, Singapore MRT covers almost the entire country.
Now, Singapore MRT supports contactless payments available on BCA Visa or Mastercard credit cards and BCA Mastercard debit card*. With the contactless feature, payments can be made simply by tapping a BCA Visa or Mastercard credit card or BCA Mastercard debit card onto the contactless-enabled payment machine.
*Payment methods using the Contactless feature can be used throughout Singapore MRT trains that support contactless transactions.
