THE Land Transport Authority has encouraged the travelling public to slowly acclimatise themselves to the new e-ticketing system that is being introduced in Fiji.

And the authority is adamant that it will eventually benefit everyone through the system's reporting and information process that will be provided soon.

"We are aware that people are still trying to adjust themselves to the e-ticketing system and we urge them to be understanding and allow time for this system to take its course," LTA chief executive officer Naisa Tuinaceva said.

He said e-ticketing rolled out last week in the Central Division and would be extended to the west on February 10 and 20 in the north.

"We have had number of meetings with our stakeholders and we are confident to say that the e-ticketing project preparation is on par," Mr Tuinaceva said.

"There are over 95 per cent of buses that had installed the consoles across the country and in the Central Division, we have had almost all the consoles going on live and operating.

"We are monitoring the progress and have daily submitted reports to the Ministry of Works, Transport and Public Utilities."

Mr Tuinaceva said the authority had for the past weeks conducted awareness around the Central Division communicating with people from the rural areas.
