    ok, I just called up and I think this should clarify the issue

    the problem is that they are running the system at 1/2 steam now, full implementation of the system will be around next year

    so what we have now is this

    - as long as your whole journey takes more than 1 bus, the maximum you need to pay is $1.90.

    - transfers for the buses must be withing 30 mins.

    - the "magic moment" only last up to 2 hours.... so you can't just pay $1.90 and travel all over singapore for 1 day.

    - the maximum number of buses you can take by just paying $1.90 is 4

    when the system is fully running

    - you can take any number of buses for $1.90

    - not sure about the time limit though, but I think that shold be a small matter now.

    To simplyfy the whole thing is this,

    you just need to pay up to a MAXIMUM of $1.90 for travelling on SBS buses for up to 2 hours.

    Hi,

    Regards to e_liau and Wai message, they mentioned that the automatic $1.90 cap is based on up to 4 SBS bus rides (3 valid transfers). They're right.

    It means that as long as you made at least 1 transfer on SBS buses, SBS will still cap the total fare at $1.90. For example, if Ali want to go from point A to point B and take 3 SBS buses;
    Bus 1 - $1.00
    Bus 2 - $1.00
    Bus 3 - $1.00
    But due to the cap, the system only cut $1.90 for the total journey instead of $3 (not including transfer rebates).

    However, things will get complicated when say, Ali takes up to 5 buses or 4 transfers, then for the 5th bus journey, he needs to go to TransitLink office to get the rebate. This is because the current automatic fare detection is only applicable up to a maximum of 4 bus rides per journey.

    Note only truck and feeder SBS buses are applicable on this scheme. Express service are not applicable.

    Hey, not all systems are prefect..

    Thanks e_liau and wai for keeping us informed in this forum
