Always have a problem of digging coins/notes out of your wallet to top-up your EZ-link card? Or dreadful of queuing up at Ticket Counter to top-up your EZ-link card?
Fear no more! As from today (1 September 2017) onwards, 11 MRT stations’ Ticket Counters will not be accepting any cash top-up services. These 11 MRT stations are Admiralty, Bedok, Bukit Panjang, Buona Vista, Farrer Park, HarbourFront, Hougang, Lakeside, Pasir Ris, Serangoon and Yew Tee.
However, commuters are still able to top-up their EZ-link cards with cash at the General Ticketing Machines (GTM).
This is part of building Singapore into a Smart Nation, phasing out cash payment at MRT stations by the year 2020.
