E-ticketing for public service vehicles

By ROPATE VALEMEI
Thursday, January 17, 2013

Update: 2:33PM THE e-ticketing card that will be launched this afternoon will be used in other modes of public service vehicles in the future.

Land Transport Authority spokesman Alfred Wiliame said there would be provisions in the cards to allow for that instead of buying another card.

"We don't expect a family of five to buy five cards. One card will do to pay for that many," Mr Wiliame said.

He said the other option of payment available would be the use of mobiles.

However, Consumer Council of Fiji chief executive officer Premila Kumar said the one-card system for families would be appropriate if they all travelled at the same time, "which was often not the case".

And she added that the option on the use of mobile phones had not been given to members of the public so they do not have to purchase smart cards.
