DEFINITION

A smart card used primarily for the payment of public transportation fares. The Chinese character “卡” (kǎ) is the transliteration of the English word “card”.

由来

  • 陆路交通管理局属下Ez-Link公司于2002年4月推出首张免接触式储值卡,方便公众搭乘地铁、轻轨列车与巴士。易通卡使用便捷,能够在0.2秒内完成交易,让搭乘公共交通更为顺畅。

ETYMOLOGY

  • The EZ-Link card is the first contactless card introduced in April 2002 by Ez-Link Pte. Ltd., a subsidiary of the Land Transport Authority (LTA). It is used for public transit, including the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), the Light Rapid Transit (LRT) and buses. The EZ-Link Card processes each transaction within 0.2 seconds, making travelling on public transport much faster and smoother.
