Jordan plans e-payment system for integrated public transport card

Wednesday 7 March 2018 | 09:27 CET | News
A project for an electronic payment system for public transportation is under way, Petra News Agency reported. It will be implemented by the Land Transport Regulatory Commission (LTRC) in cooperation with the Central Bank of Jordan. It will be easy to use, valid for all national routes with one card. The personal card for commuters that can be used on all internal transport lines will have a credit protection system in case it is lost, as it will contain the personal information of the owner, according to LTRC Director General Salah Lozi.
