Milestones

Since incorporation in 1987, TransitLink has evolved together with Singapore’s public transport system. From playing a vital role in the integration of the public transport system through network planning and the introduction of magnetic farecards to supporting the evolution of transit payment with the switch to a contactless payment system to the implementation of Distance Fares and venturing forward by developing mobile applications.
