Important Terms and Conditions to Note for BlueSG

I hope you have also taken the plunge and switch to BlueSG like me! However, there are some important terms and conditions that you should take note of.


If you do not wish to spend 30 minutes to browse through the entirety of it, here are some of which I think are really important:


4.1A.3   As BlueSG is a self-service operation, BlueSG will not be responsible to You if a BlueSG Parking Space is unavailable at any particular location or if we are unable to honour the reservation of a BlueSG Parking Space, in the event of an occurrence outside of our control (such as the parking or standing by an unauthorized vehicle or person). However, if this does occur, please contact the Customer Relations Centre who will try to direct You to the next available BlueSG Parking Space. You will be allocated an additional fifteen (15) minutes rental free period to get to such BlueSG Parking Space.
