From Sept 1, 11 stations had been selected to go cashless. Admiralty MRT is one of them and I will need to made some adjustment. Currently I and my wife is already going cashless. But what about my children? They do not have atm or debit card.
Thus, it will inconvenience me as I have to do the top up for them. They cannot do it independently. I have not sure whether LTA have thought about it. I am definitely not going to ask them to top up at convenience stores as there are additional charges involved.
This is Singapore style, enforce the rules to ensure you comply to their policy. So remember to made adjustment to your travel needs.
The 11 stations going cashless are Admiralty, Bedok, Bukit Panjang, Buona Vista, Farrer Park, HarbourFront, Hougang, Lakeside, Pasir Ris, Serangoon and Yew Tee.
