The Transport Ministry is working to get all public bus terminals in the country to implement a cashless ticket purchase by using the e-wallet system.
Its Minister, Anthony Loke Siew Fook, said it will be carried out in stages since there are terminals which have yet to implement the centralised ticketing system (CTS).
“If possible, we want all terminals to go cashless, but we also need to look at the facilities available and condition at the terminal, so those without CTS facility will take more time,” he told media after a visit at the Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) yesterday (January 22,2020).
Currently, among the bus terminals with facilities for cashless ticket purchase are the Terminal Amanjaya in Ipoh, and TBS, which also began accepting ticket purchase through e-wallet today.
In welcoming the move by TBS, Loke said it was in line with the ministry’s focus on the digitalisation of transport services.
TBS has used state-of-the-art technology to provide the upmost comfort and convenience for all south-bound, eastern, and north-bound bus express passengers.
TBS has implented CTS since 2011 and keeping moving foward with the offering of Mobile Apps in order to ease and improve passengers ticket purchasing proccess trough credit card and online banking.
