Dash is now available on the Land Transport Authority’s SimplyGo initiative providing commuters with a hassle-free commuting experience regardless of mode of transport – bus, train or taxi.

Launched in April 2019, the SimplyGo initiative empowers commuters to use their mobile wallets or contactless cards for transit. As most of these methods of use are linked to payment or savings accounts, the need to top-up a transit card is eliminated. Commuters can sign up for a SimplyGo account to view travel history and fares using the TransitLink SimplyGo Portal ( or TL SimplyGo mobile app.

Dash customers can “Dash & Ride” on buses and trained using the latest version of the Dash app from the Google Play Store or Apple’s App Store. To use Dash for transit, they can tap and pay with their NFC-enabled Android phone with the Dash app, iPhone or Apple Watch with Apple Pay. All Dash users will enjoy 50% cashback on bus and train rides in June and July 2019. This is capped at SGD 10 per user month.

Mr Gilbert Chuah, Head of mCommerce, International Group at Singtel, said, “Today, we’re pleased to extend this convenience to all modes of public transport with the Dash Visa Virtual Account so customers can enjoy a simpler and smoother commute as they go about their day.”

Singtel also announced an update to their partnership with ComfortDelGro Taxi. Dash users can already pay for their taxi rides via QR code without administrative fees, and enjoy 5% cashback on Comfort and CityCab taxis. Dash customers who are Singtel subscribers can enjoy 1GB of free local mobile data with a minimum of five ComfortDelGro taxi ride payments per month.

Singtel is expecting to provide ComfortDelGro Taxi booking functions on the Singtel Dash app by end 2019.
