Latchan says it’s over a year since the eTransport system was introduced and passengers should be using registered, permanent eTransport cards and topping this up before travelling.

FBOA is also urging people to rely less on disposable cards because of its environmental impact, at a time when the country is looking at reducing single-use plastic items.
