Chisinau, 6 April /MOLDPRES/- Second stage of the pilot project for electronic ticketing in public transport was launched today in Chisinau, which allows citizens to pay cashless for trip.
Attending the event Chisinau mayor Ion Ceban said that the initiation of the project is first step for the development of public transport in the capital by providing quality services to citizens, and with the support of partners and technologies, this initiative can be implemented later in the municipal public transport utilities.
For his part, Sergiu Stoianov, VISA development manager for Moldova said that the use of smart technologies in transport is a global trend, and this is to be fully used in public transport in Chisinau to provide comfort to passengers.
During the second stage, 57 public transport units on trolleybus routes No10, 22 and 30 and bus routes No2 and 5 will be equipped with mobile validators for accepting cashless payments.
