UNKNOWN PERPETRATORS have begun to photocopy the Transport Board’s Travel Smart Cards and the police may soon get involved.

Acting general manager Lynda Holder said they had recorded a few instances of counterfeit cards up to yesterday, when a man brought in a $32 card without the board’s security features.

“There has been an influx of counterfeit Travel Smart tickets in the public domain and the Transport Board is urging commuters to be vigilant. Authentic Travel Smart tickets are laminated and can be easily identified by their watermarked logo and the embossed seal of the Transport Board,” she said.(CA)
