With the announcement made by Touch n Go and EZ-Link, Malaysians and Singaporeans will be able to use a single card in both Malaysia and Singapore, with dual-currency enabled in this coming fourth quarter this year. Combi Card, which is expected to launch later this year, will securely host electronic wallets from both EZ-Link and Touch ‘N Go, and will enable users to pay for their public transportation trips on both sides of the causeway without having to switch cards. Super awesome for people going back and forth frequently.
“The EZ-Link and Touch ‘n Go cards have been daily companions of Singaporeans and Malaysians in our respective countries for the past few decades. EZ-Link is excited to partner with Touch ‘n Go to make it possible for our people to conveniently pay for electronic road pricing in Singapore, highway tolls in Malaysia and parking as a start, and shopping and dining in the future with just one card. It will be a milestone in EZ-Link’s efforts to continuously innovate to transform people’s lives with technology,”Source: Nicholas Lee, CEO of EZ-Link, EZ-Link
Nicholas Lee says that the card will allow users to conveniently pay for the contactless toll gate known as electronic road pricing in Singapore, highway tolls in Malaysia, and parking or shopping at participating retail outlets in both countries.
“The Touch ‘n Go and EZ-Link cards have been an essential part of everyday touchpoint for both the Malaysian and Singaporean consumers across transit, mobility and retail.
