Ethiopia to launch e-ticketing services for public transit buses

(Dec 06, 2116, (Xinhua))--Ethiopia has finalized preparations to commence new technology-supported payment and ticketing services for cross-regional public transit buses within the country. The e-ticketing service, which is for transit buses to and from different parts of Ethiopia, will start as of December 10, 2016.

The Federal Transport Authority (FTA), inspired by the advancements of the government billing system called "Lehulu", is leading the launch of the new payment and ticketing service powered by Kifya Financial Technology Plc.
Lehulu is a unique and unified utility billing system introduced under a public-private partnership among Kifya, the Ethiopian Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT), the Ethiopian Electric Utility, the Addis Ababa Water and Sewerage Authority, and Ethio Telecom.

The new platform dubbed, "Yene Guzo", which literally means "My Trip", has been developed to make the public cross-regional bus service easier so that customers travel and connect with loved ones at ease. Read more from Xinhuanet »
