Thursday 27 May 2004 10:04 CET | News

Most of McDonalds restaurants and McCafés in Singapore, will begin accepting the ez-link card with immediate effect. By mid June, ez-link card payment will be available at all McDonald’s Restaurants. By doing so, McDonalds becomes the first in the fast casual restaurant industry here to accept the ez-link card as a payment mode in its restaurants, including its newly opened stand-alone restaurant at the West Coast Park. The ez-link card, introduced in April 2002 for use through the public transport system, makes use of the contactless smart card (CSC) technology. With some 5.9 million cards already in circulation today, the ez-link card has the highest wallet penetration of any payment or non-payment related cards in Singapore. Other establishments that accept the ez-link card for payment include the National Library Board, cinemas, photo developing kiosks and 12 schools.
