Attorney-General and Minister for Communications Hon. Aiyaz Sayed- Khaiyum today launched the e-ticketing vending machine at the Suva bus stand.
That means e-ticketing users from today have another reliable option to go to top up their e-ticketing cards.
A-G says this move by the government in conjunction with Vodafone Fiji is a major leap forward for the e-ticketing initiative.
There are currently 5 vending machines in the country, with 2 at the Suva bus stand, 2 at Nausori Bus Terminal and 1 in Nadi.
The e-Transport Top-Up Machine will allow card holders to check available balance, top-up, redeem government subsidies for elderly, students and people living with disabilities.
E-Transport Vending Machine will be rolled out in Labasa Bus stand at later phases.
The machine will only accept coins ( $1 and $2) and notes ( $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100) . The machine will also issue receipts on demand.
A minimum of $2 top-up can be done through the eTransport Top-up Vending Machine as long as the balance on the card does not exceed $100.
