Free Bus Service if MRT breakdown? How?

Recently it was reported that free bus services will be provided at certain points nearest to the affected stations in the event of an extended MRT service disruption. I didn't hear the part on how the bus providers though will find out who are the passengers that are affected by the service disruption. Definitely not everyone who board the buses at those bus stops will get free bus services.

The only way that I know that the bus providers can identify which passengers are affected by the service disruption is through the ezlink card transaction logs. So what does this mean? It means that you need to pay first, and later claim back from the control station.

So now you know why the providers agree to this. It's quite likely that for those who take the bus services, they will not bother to claim back because it will most probably be only a few cents (not even a dollar) due to switch between MRT and bus services.

I rather that the MRT shouldn't breakdown in the first place.
