Ezlink from transport operators?????Originally posted by PoRen:Transport operators has excess millions of dollars from all the EZLink cards deposit
Investment of these millions of dollars can result in even more capital gains in the operators' profit
Not worth for consumer to pay $5 for a new card every 5-7 years

We are supposed to be using public transport, not privileged or private transport.
If public transportation is considered a privilege, then I don't mind applying for it and paying for the privilege.
Will you pay $5 for the privilege to shop at NTUC Fairprice for five years? Mind you, you still have to pay for your purchases.
EZ Link cards should be given out free, because it is for the convenience of the transport operators, not the commuters. Pay $5 still must top up only at MRT or Bus terminals (7-11 charge 30 cents service fee). Is it for your benefit?
You have no choice, you are captive market. If they say you must join SBS or SMRT Welfare Society before you can get an EZ Link card, you quai quai must join.
That is the issue.

Card can only be replaced when it cannot be read by system - so better use the card without card holder or protective holder , so that it will turn old or unreadable within 5 years, and get a new card FREE
If a user protects his EZLink card so cleanly, and the card survives pass the 5-year warranty, will require payment of $5 for a new replacement card (card cannot be used after 7 years)
Mine is act cute sticker..
