UOB has launched an Account-Based Ticketing (ABT) pilot with Land Transport Authority (LTA) that allows you to tap your UOB Mastercard for your bus and train rides, and earn miles in the process.
There will no more need for upfront top-ups as your bus and train rides will be charged directly to your credit card.
You must register to link your credit card to your ABT account here before you can use this facility. Upon receiving confirmation of your successful registration, you may then use your contactless UOB Mastercard to make payments for bus and train rides.
There are no additional charges, and all supplementary cardholders are eligible for this service.
The FAQ on how to initiate this service can be found here. Slots for this pilot are limited, so do act fast.
