Contactless payment company EZ-Link Pte Ltd has partnered with Malaysia's largest e-wallet Touch & # 39; n Go Sdn Bhd for multiple applications to launch a new EZ-Link x Touch & # 39; n Go motor card to bring to market.
It is touted as Southeast Asia's first cross-border contactless dual-currency smart card.
With the two-way green alley between Singapore and Malaysia now in operation, drivers can look forward to a gradual and gradual resumption of cross-border travel between the two countries.
The dual currency card offers drivers the convenience and flexibility of payment options in both countries. It securely houses two electronic wallets – the EZ-Link wallet in Singapore dollars and the Touch & # 39; n & # 39; Go wallet in Malaysian ringgit.
Motorists in Singapore can use this card for Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) payments, checkpoint tolls and parking fees in select Singapore car parks.
In Malaysia, it can be used to pay motorway tolls, checkpoint tolls, parking fees, and bus and MRT fares. It is also accepted in Touch & # 39; n Go retail stores.

A first release of limited stocks will be available for purchase on August 17th in the official EZ-Link store on Lazada Singapore at a price of S $ 7 with no load value.
The cards will then go on sale in September in selected 7-Eleven convenience stores in Singapore at a price of S $ 10 including the loading value of S $ 3 in the EZ-Link wallet.
Users can top up the EZ-Link Wallet and Touch & # 39; n & # 39; Go Wallet on regular channels in Singapore and Malaysia, respectively.
"It has certainly been a challenging time for anyone with restrictions on cross-border travel, but we look forward to the gradual and safe reopening of the Singapore-Malaysia border," said Nicholas Lee, EZ-Link CEO.
"Our EZ-Link x Touch & # 39; n & # 39; Go motor card offers drivers who frequently have to travel between countries a new level of convenience and offers additional security and flexibility for contactless payment options."
The RTS (Rapid Transit System) connection project between Singapore and Malaysia also officially resumed last month.
EZ-Link looks forward to working closely with relevant authorities and transport companies to find out how their products can be further improved to add value for consumers.
