MORE than 95 per cent of the buses in the country have been installed with the e-ticketing consoles with almost all the buses in the Central Division using the new system.
On Vanua Levu, LTA chief executive Naisa Tuinaceva said the installation process was expected to be completed by the end of the month and operational by February 20.
The system will require people to use cards instead of money to pay bus fares.
Mr Tuinaceva said they were aware people were still adjusting to the system and that time must be given to allow for this change.
In the meantime, he said several meetings had been conducted in the past weeks to create awareness of this new electronic ticketing system.
"The awareness program has covered Naitasiri, Tailevu, Rewa, Namosi and Serua where people have been advised on how the e-ticketing system works and also where they can get their cards from," Mr Tuinaceva said.
"Similar programs will be conducted in the west and the north to ensure people fully understand the purpose and the effective usage of the cards."
He said they were adamant the system would benefit everyone, the travelling public and stakeholders.
