VODAFONE Fiji has confirmed that 34,756 people within the Central and Western region have registered for the e-ticketing bus cards.
This was revealed by Vodafone Fiji's manager corporate affairs, Shailendra Prasad yesterday afternoon.
"We have also commenced registration for the Northern Division from today (yesterday)," he said.
He noted that e-ticketing was also being gradually activated in the west and would officially be launched on Friday this week.
Mr Prasad said the public needed to understand that one person could only register a card once and could not collect multiple cards in his or her name.
"A family member can also bring in registration details for someone else and collect their card on their behalf," he explained.
"However, the form needs to be filled in the name of the person the card is to be issued to.
"A copy of their ID must be attached to the form which must match the name on the form for verification," Mr Prasad said.
He said the rule was that for social welfare beneficiaries, their cards would be available only after April 1 and they would not be of any cost to them.
In Suva people crowded the bus terminal to register for their new bus fare cards. It was the same story at the Vodafone office in Labasa.
