Students who are yet to register for their new e-transport cards or top-up their cards can do so at their respective school for the next two weeks.
Education Minister, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, says they have also made arrangements with bus companies to allow those students who do not have e-cards to travel without the cards for atleast two weeks.
“The Ministry is deploying 23 roving teams that will be able to assist, so we urge all parents that if you still have no registered your child and you are eligible please go to the school with your child on the first day if you have not done so, fill out the forms and they will be given out the cards either that same day or the next couple of day thereafter.”
Sayed-Khaiyum says eligible students who travel on other forms of alternative transport including trucks, carriers and boats that receive government subsidy were given vouchers on the final day of school last year.
He says parents of Year 1 students using this mode of transport have been able to apply for vouchers since January 10th.
Sayed-Khaiyum says those parents who are yet to receive the vouchers can make applications today at the respective schools.
