First Time Use of School Smart Cards for Concessionary Travel for Sec 1 Students

Dear Sec 1 Students,

We are pleased to inform you that the School Smart Cards (SSCs) for Secondary One students will be delivered to the school between 1 Feb to 14 Feb 2018 to meet the expiry deadline on the use of the primary level SSCs by the Secondary One students on 30 April 2018.   You will receive your School Smart Card through your respective Form Teachers.  

Please note that you are required to activate your card at the TransitLink Ticket Offices / TransitLink Concession Card Replacement Offices / Passenger Service Centres (PSCs) at the MRT / Bus Interchanges by topping-up the value for the card before the SSCs can be used for concessionary travel. In support of national initiative to steer commuters towards adopting e-payments in transit ticketing, top up at Passenger Services Centre is progressively ceased. However PSCs will continue to assist in the activation of concession card for MOE students. To avoid being turned away, students are advised to inform the PSC staff that they would like to activate their concession card.  The minimum top-up value is $5.

Please call TransitLink at 1800 2255663 if you require further clarification.  Thank you.
