Diploma Students' Concession Card

All RP full-time students are eligible to apply for a Diploma Student Concession card that can be used to pay for travel on buses, MRT and LRT. For more information, refer to www.transitlink.com.sg


For New Students

For new polytechnic students the application process for the Diploma Student Concession Card is not automatic. If you need the concession card, please submit an application to TransitLink during the bulk application exercise, which is usually conducted from March to May every year.

If you miss the exercise, you still can apply online or at any TransitLink Concession Card Replacement Offices (CCROs). Please refer to TransitLink FAQ for more information.
