The Land Transport Authority (LTA) announced on Aug 6, 2021, the reduction of the minimum cash top-up amount for stored value cards to two dollars.

Minimum Cash Top-up Amount Reduced

To ensure that more commuters can use their stored value cards with ease, LTA reduced the minimum top-up amount at ticketing machines to two dollars.

Original Top-up Minimum New Top-up Minimum
Adult [1] $10.00 $2.00
Student [2] $5.00 $2.00

It added that this change will allow commuters who have limited cash on hand ‘to top up their stored value cards to continue their journey and enjoy cost savings through the use of these cards.’

Free EZ-Link Cards for Comcare Recipients

Since September 2021, ComCare recipients who do not own a concession card will receive a notification to collect a free adult EZ-Link card.

The free adult EZ-Link card can be redeemed at any TransitLink Ticket Office or Concession Card Replacement Office within three months from the date of the letter.
