ANYONE found using subsidised eTransport cards for their own advantage is liable to a penalty of $150 under the Electronic Fare Ticketing Regulation.

Land Transport Authority CEO Samuel Simpson warned against the use of subsidised cards for children, senior citizens and persons with disability for their own benefit.

Mr Simpson said they had received complaints of people abusing the Government subsidised eTransport cards.

He said there were three types of subsidised eTransport cards – blue for school children, purple for senior citizens and green for people with disability.

He added that the yellow card was for all other children and red cards were for adults who did not fall under the underprivileged category.

Mr Simpson is reminding passengers to ensure that while they travelled on an omnibus, they must pay the correct fare through the bus card reader provided.
