JOHOR BARU: The Land Public Transport Commission has called on bus operators to introduce electronic ticketing to curb touting.
LPTC chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar said such a move would be good for passengers using public transport.
“We are currently conducting a feasibility study on having e-ticketing as well as introducing proper arrival and departure bays at bus terminals.
“We hope to see it implemented in the near future to improve public transportation and curb ticket touts,” he told newsmen after launching the waiting area for Syarikat Pengang-kutan Maju Berhad bus passengers at the Larkin Bus Terminal yesterday.
Syed Hamid said the new ticketing system would ensure that the fare stated on the ticket would be valid and there would be no sudden price hikes.
He also announced that the new Integrated Transportation Terminal-Bandar Tasik Selatan (ITT-BTS) as well as the Puduraya bus terminal would be fully operational in March.
“Both terminals will ensure smooth travel and will be of convenience to bus operators as well.”
