E-Ticketing for Students’ Bus fares
“Telecom Fiji Limited as supplier of electronic tickets is holding talks with the Ministry of Transport in consultation with the Ministry of Education,” the Minister of Education, Mr Filipe Bole said.
“It is envisaged that electronic tickets will be in use by the beginning of term two.
“Meanwhile, bus fare coupons have been supplied to District Education Offices for distribution to schools from next week.
“However, this will take some time to accomplish, so parents are advised to pay for their children’s fares for the first week of school in term one.”
According to Mr Bole, the E-tickets will contain the student’s name, his/her identification number, the issue and expiry dates of tickets, the bus stages where tickets are to be used and the subsidy given.
“This exercise is also an indication of how the education system is advancing in this information age,” the minister said.
