If you are currently a Workfare Transport Concession (WTC) Card holder, you can switch to a PWD Concession Card to enjoy better concession benefits provided you meet the eligibility criteria.
The card conversion can only be performed at a Concession Card Replacement Office/Ticketing Service Centre. Please bring along:
- your current WTC Card; and
- original NRIC.
Any person applying for the card conversion on your behalf will need to present his/her own original NRIC in addition to the above-mentioned items.
Your WTC Card will be retained and any remaining travel value will be refunded to you in cash.
Monthly Concession Pass
In addition to concessionary fares, Persons with Disability Concession Card holders have the option of buying the $64 Monthly Concession Pass (MCP) for one month of unlimited travel on train and basic bus services.
MCPs can be purchased from any TransitLink Ticket Office, TransitLink Kiosk, General Ticketing Machine or Assisted Service Kiosk.
Concession cards have to be activated and valid before the purchase of concession passes.
Only ONE valid concession pass can be used on an individual concession card at any one time.
The concession pass can be activated up to seven days in advance of your intended travel start date. The validity period of the concession pass cannot overlap with that of the previously purchased concession pass, and commences from the beginning of bus/train operating hours on the activated concession pass’s start date.
Unused concession pass or any part therefore is non-refundable.
You will still enjoy concessionary fares with your concession card even if you do not purchase a concession pass.
The concession pass cannot be used on Express and Premium Bus Services like Chinatown Direct Bus Services, Nite Owl bus services, NightRider services and City Direct Services. For more information on basic and premium bus services, please visit the SBS Transit, SMRT, Tower Transit or Go-Ahead Singapore website.
Card Validity Period
The Persons with Disabilities (PWD) Card has a validity of seven years. Expiring PWD Cards can be replaced for free. The replacement must be made before the card expiry date.
You can return your PWD Concession Card at any TransitLink Ticket Office.
To get a refund of any remaining travel value, please produce your original NRIC/Passport/Re-entry Permit. The card will be retained for processing.
Any person collecting the refund on your behalf will have to present his/her own original NRIC/passport in addition to the above-mentioned items.
