Thales to modernise fare gates on Singapore MRT [free access]

October 12, 2021

Thales has secured a contract from Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA) to modernise and standardise 1,350 automatic fare collection (AFC) gates on Singapore Mass Rapid Transit (MRT). The company will be responsible for modernising the AFC gates on the existing lines, including the North–South, East–West, and Circle Lines, as well as the upcoming Jurong Region Line over a period of seven years.


The modernised AFC gates will have standardised slimmer swing flaps and will be equipped with contactless technologies. Singapore LTA has deployed contactless bank cards as well as near-communication field (NFC)-based digital wallets like Apple Pay, Fitbit Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay for fare collection on MRT lines.
