    None of the above - cos it won't make a difference to his attitude.

    Retaining student ez-link cards an insensitive act
    I READ with disappointment the joint letter, 'Why some ez-link cards may be retained' by TransitLink and SBS Transit (ST, June 1).
    Both companies are insensitive to authorise bus drivers to retain student ez-link cards. Such cards act as an identity card as well and it is the only photo identification card for a primary school pupil.
    Schools require the student identification card to borrow books in their libraries. This card is also used to borrow books at public libraries, and it is used as identification when taking non-school examinations.
    At present, there is no avenue to buy any other student ez-link card.
    Retaining student ez-link cards is like retaining an adult identity card. Perhaps this did not occur to Transit Link and SBS Transit as they may view the student ez-link card as just another ez-link card.
    If TransitLink and SBS Transit insist on continuing to authorise bus drivers to retain student identification cards, I suggest that students be allowed to buy a card solely for ez-link facility. Bus drivers can still identify commuters who use student cards as there will be two beeps and a green light if the card is read successfully. Commuters who misuse a student ez-link card can also be identified easily by the bus drivers.
    Also, it is time to allow students to buy more than one ez-link card as it can be very inconvenient if the card is lost or misplaced.
    If the student identification card continues to be the only card for bus and MRT travel, the Ministry of Education should review the integration of ez-link facility into this card. Tan Teck Lee
    I do think TransitLink and SBS Transit indeed need to provide more info to the card retained holder about how long it take and what should they do to get back the card.

    I REFER to the letter by Mr Peter Lo, 'TransitLink and SBS have no statutory right to retain ez-link cards' (ST Online Forum, June 14).
    Regarding Mr Lo's feedback on statutory right to retain ez-link cards, we would like to highlight that SBS Transit and TransitLink have never stated that the right of retention is statutory in nature.
    Each bus trip is a contract of carriage between the operator of the carriage and the passenger, subject to the consideration in the form of a fare by way of cash or ez-link card.
    The use of the ez-link card is governed by the published General Conditions of Issue and Use for EZ-Link Cards. According to the Conditions, despite the payment of card cost for any ez-link card purchased, all ez-link cards remain the property of EZ-Link Pte Ltd. Furthermore, the ez-link card must be produced at any time for inspection by any authorised personnel of EZ-Link Pte Ltd, the transport operators or qualified merchant. In addition, the Conditions entitle them to retain any ez-link card, which it reasonably suspects or has reason to believe to have been fraudulently issued, stolen, tampered with or misused. Hence, the bus captain has the clear contractual right to retain an ez-link card once the above circumstances are met.
    We thank Mr Lo for sharing his feedback and hope we have addressed his concerns.

    Do also check out the previous reply here for a complete picture:

    TransitLink and SBS have no statutory right to retain ez-link cards

    I REFER to the article, 'Why some ez-link cards may be retained', by TransitLink and SBS Transit (ST, June 1).

    TransitLink and SBS assert that 'authorisation" is given to their bus captains to retain ez-link cards and further state that the use of ez-link cards is governed by 'regulations and published conditions".

    This may appear officious sounding, but a look of these regulations and published conditions shows that Transit Link merely has a contractual right to retain such cards in accordance with its conditions.

    This is not the same as saying that they have a statutory right.

    In other words, if any disgruntled passengers wish to dispute the bus captain's right to retain their ez-link cards, the bus captain has no legal authority to confiscate the cards.
    TransitLink's only recourse would be to file a civil suit in the courts against the customer for damages and incur substantial legal fees in the process.

    Until and unless there are statutory rights given to transport operators, they do not have a statutory right to confiscate ez-link cards, even though the 'published conditions" state that the cards are the property of the transport operators.

    So now only depend on the bus driver willing to pursue the matter or not, as long as the people/family who assaulted the bus driver make him happy, they can get away with it?

    They probed all the cases except where the bus driver concerned did not wish to pursue the matter.
    Police spokesman Stanley Norbert said such incidents affected 'public safety and order' and urged members of the public to call 999 to report any such incidents. 'When alerted, the police will respond promptly and take firm action against the assailants to ensure they do not get away scot-free,' he said.
