Fiji’s transport industry is expected to undergo some major transformation in a year’s time.
This was revealed by Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum during a budget roadshow in Ba over the weekend adding the government will soon introduce the e-ticketing system in mini-vans and inter-island vessels.
Sayed-Khaiyum says there are plans to have a new tap-on, tap-off technology in buses currently practiced overseas to create more transparency in the bus system.
“Tap on Tap off is you go and tap the card, you’ll say oka i got on at stage one and there’s no other intervention, you go and sit down when get off you tap again, when you tap off the system will automatically cuts off your bus fare’’
Sayed-Khaiyum says they’re currently working with the LTA and the Ministry for Transport to bring about these changes.
