The Metropolitan Transportation Agency says the government will not pay a penny for the electronic ticketing system being installed at an estimated cost of over US$22 million.
The electronic ticketing system will be installed by Tanzania Maxkom, which is expected to operate in Mozambique for ten years and recoup its expenses through a commission on each ticket sold.
The Metropolitan Transportation Agency is optimistic about the success of the new system and says everyone will gain from it.
The installation of the electronic ticketing system will start later this month, and will work on some routes by November of this year. By June 2020, passengers will not be able to travel using cash – unless they are prepared to pay double the standard fare.
