RFID tags to replace paper HDB season parking tickets


HDB Introducing RFID Tags To Replace Paper Season Parking Tickets

HDB is introducing Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags to replace the current paper disc issued to season parking tickets (SPT) holders.
The new tags will be issued progressively to all SPT holders within one year.
Currently, HDB SPT holders display the paper disc on their vehicles for verification by parking enforcement officers.
The season parking details are displayed on the disc, which is replaced each time the motorist renews the season parking.
In Aug 2005, HDB had implemented RFID tags in place of the paper disc tickets on a pilot basis at seven car parks.
Following the successful trial and positive response, HDB will be implementing the system to all its residential car parks.
The introduction of the RFID tags will bring more convenience for SPT holders as they would no longer need to replace the paper SPT each time they renew their season parking.
The transition is also simple. Like the existing paper disc, the RFID tag is displayed on the windscreen for cars or near the road tax disc for motorcycles. The RFID tag will store a serial number that identifies the vehicle.
Parking enforcement officers using handheld scanners can then scan the RFID tag for the number, which is matched against information on the vehicle, such as its licence plate number and SPT's period of validity.
SPT holders will be notified by post closer to the time when the RFID tags are implemented at their car parks. New SPT applicants will be given RFID tags when they apply to purchase season parking.
The first batch of car parks / areas where HDB will start sending out the RFID tags is listed in ANNEX A for reference.
SPT holders using these car parks who do not receive their notification and tags by 15 Mar 2007 or those who need further clarification can contact HDB Branch Office Service Line at 1800-2255432 between 8am and 5pm on weekdays.
