The Singapore government has announced the new Workfare Transport Concession Scheme (WTCS) for the recipients of the Workfare Income Supplement (WIS Scheme). The concession holders of the scheme will be able to enjoy 15% discount off the adult fares on buses and trains.
You will recieve the letter from Land Transport Authority (LTA) if you are already on the WIS Scheme. You may apply online via www.transitlink.com.sg or using the hard copy posted to you. The deadline to make the application is 31 December 2014. But do it immediately so that you can get to enjoy the discount off the transport fares.
You will be given $30 of interim finanical assistance to help defray the transport cost during the implementation period from 6 April 2014 to 5 July 2014. This assistance amount is available up to 31 December 2014 only.

- Individuals who qualify for WIS prior to 6 July 2014 will receive an application package from LTA informing them of their WTCS eligibility details of the scheme and how to apply for the Workfare Transport Concession Card
