Ministry Takes Transportation Payment Online

The Ministry of Transport has started an internet-based transportation payment service to combat the transmission of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) within the community. The Ministry officially launched the service on June 19, 2020, with the aim of reducing physical contact created by the high numbers of ticket purchasers. The new system is expected to play a vital role in leading the sector with technology, preventing the disease from spreading and reducing wait times and expenses for customers, according to Dagmawit Moges, minister of Transport. "It'll allow travellers to book tickets with their mobile phones without having to be physically present at the bus stations," she said. A team of experts from the Technology & Innovation Institute have developed an online system to process special permits for private vehicles. The Ministry has also recently deployed a team of professionals tasked with ensuring the consistent implementation of health standards across the transport sector of the country.
