When there is less than R20 on your card, a yellow light will shine around the validator screen and you will hear multiple beeps after you tap your card. This means that the transaction was successful, but that you need to top up urgently.

Your myconnect card has an expiry date. You can replace your expiring card up to 3 months before it expires and transfer the value from your expiring card to your new card. If your card has already expired, you can still replace your card and have the value transferred.
If your myconnect does not work, you can apply to have your card replaced. If the issue is due to a system fault, your replacement card will be issued at no cost. If the card has been physically damaged, the cost will be as per the tariff for a new card. The value from your faulty card will be transferred to your new card immediately. If the card cannot be read, please allow up to 10 days for Mover and 32 days for Standard to be transferred to your new card.
