RESIDENTS in rural areas along Seaqaqa were happy with the restored e-ticketing card registration by Vodafone personnel in their area.
Card registration had to be stopped last month as Vodafone had run out of e-ticketing cards from the initial 100,000 cards that they were supplied with.
Seaqaqa resident Saukhat Ali said they were happy to be a part of the e-ticketing card registrations held in Seaqaqa town on Tuesday.
"We are thankful to Vodafone Fiji for bringing the services right to centres closer to us since initially, we had to spend $6 worth of fare travelling to and from Labasa to be registered," said Mr Ali.
"However, now since it is within our reach in Seaqaqa town, we can save money travelling to Labasa," he said.
Tabia resident Shakuntla Singh said they were happy that the registrations were brought closer to them so that people living in remote areas in the interior of Seaqaqa could have access to the e-ticketing registrations.
Another Seaqaqa resident Krishneel Jeet said the awareness programs carried out by the team was very educational on how the whole e-ticketing system worked.
"This is also a good time for people in the interior of Seaqaqa and other rural areas to access the registrations and have an idea on how it works," Mr Jeet said.
Vodafone marketing manager Liga Gukisuva urged the public in rural areas to take advantage of the registrations that were happening within their areas.
Mr Gukisuva said personnel carrying out registration were also doing awareness on how the e-ticketing system worked.
"We urge the members of the public to come for registration with their valid ID cards and $2 for card registrations.
"We need valid cards so that it is easy to trace their real owner in cases of lost cards. We will also be doing card registrations and awareness in maritime zones after we sort out the rural areas across the north."
