Coming Soon: Bus Commuters to Pay Electronically

During Ramadan, keeping up with news can feel more like a part time job. Indeed, there’s so much happening around us that it gets harder and harder to stay updated with the bits and pieces of information floating around, especially as we become increasingly preoccupied with Iftar and Sohour gatherings.

That being said, in this day and age access to information has become significantly easier, many thanks to the power and advent of technology. With a few swipes, people can view the content they need, wherever and whenever they want. Doesn’t seem much of a surprise to all Egyptians, especially with all those mind-blowing updates we’re being hit with every single day, concerning all sorts of new inventions.

On top of those catchy news titles, comes one related to Egypt’s Public Transport Authority. The entity has been experimenting with the idea of having bus commuters pay electronically in hopes of reducing the amount of embezzled losses they have been facing. Major General, Rezk Ali, has emphasised on the huge amount of losses that Egypt’s Public Transport Authority has incurred, leading to the exoneration of almost 2000 cases to public prosecution.
