THE Ministry of Education is urging beneficiaries on the subsidised e-Transport cards for students who have not yet redeemed their transportation assistance to do so urgently.
A Government statement issued this evening said funds could be redeemed by students or parents directly on-board buses equipped with e-Transport machines, or at Vodafone outlets, Valuefone, Mr Mobile outlets or district education offices.
“If any parent and student is experiencing technical issues with a subsidised e-Transport card, please contact Vodafone’s customer service at number 151.
Subsidised e-Transport cards that have been lost or damaged can be replaced at any Vodafone outlet,” the ministry stated.
“Any general queries about the e-Transport Assistance Scheme can be directed to the ministry at number 163.”
The ministry successfully loaded the funds of 61,644 subsidised e-Transport cards for students qualifying for assistance under the e-Transport Assistance Scheme on Wednesday, January 8, 2020.
A total of 25,161 cards have been redeemed as of January 15, 2020.
