Transit with Visa - Frequently Asked Questions
15th July 2022 for the first phase.
During the first phase of the Visa card payment launch, you will be able to pay your bus fare with Visa card on 4 selected bus routes including CW1, CW2, CW5 and CWL.
Visa credit, Visa debit and Visa prepaid are all acceptable.
Tap your Visa card at the tapping machine when you board the bus.
For cross-border buses routes (to and from Singapore) you will need to TAP IN ONLY when boarding the bus (including when re-boarding the bus at checkpoints) to avoid wrong fare deduction.
For Malaysia local bus routes you need to TAP IN (WHEN BOARDING) and OUT (WHEN ALIGHTING) to avoid wrong fare deduction.
5. My Visa Card is issued by an overseas bank (outside Malaysia), can I use it to make a payment on bus too?
Yes, as long as your Visa card is contactless enabled and issued by an authorized bank/financial institution regardless the country of issuance.
There will be no additional fee or hidden charges on the bus fare, you will be charged based on the exact bus fare. In the case if you are using Visa card issued by overseas bank (outside Malaysia), foreign transaction fee may apply here. For Visa card issued by overseas banks we would recommend you to check with your respective bank on this part.
7. Other than Visa card, can I link my Visa card with Apple Pay or Google Pay and make a payment via my phone?
In the case of holding more than one Visa card or even ManjaLink card in your wallet,
We would strongly recommend you to take out the particular Visa card that wish to make payment with and to tap it directly on the reader.
In this case, you should always refer to the respective bank that issued your Visa card.
Insufficient funds on the card may result in you not being able to board the bus, please ensure that there are sufficient funds in your card to avoid such incidents.
