The smooth ticket recharge facility in Singapore MRT.
The ticketing system uses the EZ-Link and NETS FlashPay contact less smart cards based upon the Symphony for e-Payment (SeP) system for public transit built on the Singapore Standard for Contact less ePurse Application (CEPAS) system. This system allows for up to 4 card issuers in the market.
