Singapore’s smart card company EZ-Link has announced the launch of a dual-currency contactless card in collaboration with Malaysia’s Touch ‘n Go, namely the EZ-Link x Touch ‘n Go Motoring Card.

On 14 July 2020, Minister of Foreign Affairs Malaysia Dato Seri Hishammuddin Hussein announced the reopening of the borders between Malaysia and Singapore starting 10 August while implementing the concepts of Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) and Periodic Commuting Arrangement (PCA).

As some of the cross-border travelling between Malaysia and Singapore resumes, this card may ease up the process for Malaysian and Singaporean travellers.

EZ-Link CEO Nicholas Lee said that it has certainly been a challenging period for everyone where cross-border travel has been restricted, “But we look forward to the gradual and safe reopening of the border between Singapore and Malaysia,” according to Mothership.sg.

Being the “first-of-its-kind” in the region, this collaboration brings a seamless experience for the users as it securely holds both the Touch ‘n Go purse in MYR as well as EZ-Link purse in SGD.

In Malaysia, the card can be used for paying highway tolls, checkpoint toll charges, parking fees, bus fares, MRT fees and even retail and dining acceptance points. Whereas in our neighbouring country, the card is used for Electronic Road Pricing (ERP), checkpoint tolls in Singapore as well as for contactless payment of selected parking spots.

This card is catered for registered vehicles travelling between Singapore and Malaysia. Therefore, all foreign vehicles entering Singapore will still be required to use an Autopass card to pay for all entry and exit fees while travelling across Singapore’s borders.

The Autopass card is like an electronic Vehicle Entry Permit for foreign cars and motorcycles and is used to record the vehicle’s entry into Singapore.

This EZ-Link x Touch ‘n Go card was released yesterday (17 August 2020) in Singapore, but stocks are limited on EZ-Link’s store on Lazada Singapore. They cost S$7 (approximately RM21) with no value in either of the electronic purses.

The card will also subsequently be launched at selected 7-Eleven stores in Singapore next month (September 2020) at S$10 (approximately RM30), inclusive of S$3(approximately RM9) in the EZ-Link purse.

Although the card is only sold in Singapore, it can be topped up in both Malaysia in Singapore, in the general recharge channels.

Remember to always follow SOPs and take care of your health and safety while travelling between the two countries!
