    POSB ATM Card

  3. Avoid card clash
    Always take your desired DBS/POSB Card out of your wallet when you tap on the fare reader. Tapping a wallet containing multiple payment cards may result in card clash and multiple charges may be incurred.

  4. Track your journey and transit fare history
    View your travel history and transactions on the go via the TransitLink SimplyGo Portal or TL SimplyGo mobile app.

  5. Go mobile!
    Tap to pay with your DBS/POSB Card on your mobile or wearable devices.

POSB Smart Buddy is powered by NETS contactless (embedded in your child’s watch), which means that your child’s watch can also be accepted on public transport. Your child may use the watch for transit when he/she forgets to bring their School Smartcard. However, if Smart Buddy watch is used for transit, full adult fare will be charged (concession rates will not apply).

Please note you are unable to temporary lock or disable contactless payments via Payment Controls, or block cards for the first bus and train fare transactions. Avoid tapping your card/device on the fare readers if you do not intend to pay via this method.
