79,000 applications for Public Transport Vouchers received so far

Some 79,000 applications for Public Transport Vouchers or PTVs have been received so far. 

Applications for the $30 vouchers opened four days ago. 

This year, $7.5 million from the Public Transport Fund has been set aside to fund 250,000 PTVs to help needy families cope with the increase in public transport fares that will take effect from April the 6th. 

Unlike the last PTV Exercise in 2011, this year's Exercise will be opened for applications year-round. 

There is no need to rush to apply for the PTVs.
