How to use the EZ-Link Card

Start here
EZ-Link is a contactless smart card that you can use to pay for your rides on the Singapore MRT and buses. It can also be used on the In-Vehicle Unit for the the Electronic Road Pricing. The card was introduced in 2001. Today there are some 10 million EZ-Link cards in circulation, more than the whole population of Singapore.

You can buy the EZ-Link cards at all the MRT stations and at certain kiosks. The card for adults costs S$15, including a S$5 non-refundable card cost and a S$10 stored value.

To use the card when riding the MRT trains and the buses, simply tap your card on the entry card reader, and again at the exit reader when you disembark. If you forgot to tap the exit reader when you get off the bus, you will be charged the maximum fare payable for the entire bus journey.

This is how the card reader looks like on the bus:
