Call 151 For New Bus Cards

As Fiji gears up for the start of the new school year students who have lost their eTransport cards have been told not to worry because they can get new ones.

All they have to do is dial toll free number 151.

Ministry of Education transport officer Iva Driu says as soon as a card is lost, parents and guardians need to dial 151 for the card number to be blocked and the funds retained.

To get a new card, students will need to confirm their student ID numbers and get their eTransport card details, which would then be submitted to Vodafone for the issuance of a new card.

Ms Driu said last year the ministry blocked 5000 cards, which belonged to Year 13 students.

For Year 1 students, parents and guardians need to enrol their child first and the schools will complete the process.

However, Ms Driu said, for parents whose children do not qualify for the bus fare assistance scheme they can take their child’s birth certificate to Vodafone and get a yellow bus card.

They don’t need a student ID for this.

Ms Driu said last year the ministry issued more than 6000 new blue bus cards.
