As you may already know, Mastercard has partnered with the Land Transport Authority (LTA) and TransitLink to launch Mastercard contactless payments on buses and trains. Commuters are currently able to use their credit and debit card (with Mastercard contactless function) to make fare payments - you will not need to top-up your card since transactions will be processed, accumulated and charged to your relevant credit or debit card. From 06 June 2019, Visa cards will also be supported and in case you are wondering, mobile wallets (e.g. Apple Pay) are supported as well.
