Commuters who had paid for their bus rides this morning, 26 October 2015, when the North East Line service was down can seek a refund over the next seven days starting from tomorrow until Monday, 2 November 2015. This would mean anyone who has taken a ride on all public buses between 5.23am and 9.30am this morning.
Refunds can be obtained at all Passenger Service Centres located at all MRT stations (SBS Transit and SMRT stations). Commuters may also file their request for refunds through Transit Link Pte Ltd in any one of the following ways:
1) TransitLink website at www.transitlink.com.sg or via TL Mobile Services App under "Customer Claim";
2) TransitLink Hotline at 1800-CALL ONE (1800-2255 663) which is open from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm daily; or
3) Any TransitLink Ticket Offices
For the convenience of commuters, they are encouraged to file their request for refunds online or through the mobile app instead of visiting the Passenger Service Centres or TransitLink Ticket Offices.
