Municipal services of Bishkek city sabotage e-ticketing. The mayor of Bishkek Aziz Surakmatov announced at a meeting in the city administration.
He instructed the Deputy Mayor Maxim Sitnikov to resolve this issue by November. «Nowhere in the world passengers pay in cash for travel on buses. E-ticketing is artificially complicated in Bishkek. It is profitable for drivers to work with cash. It is difficult to pull out that got into a pocket. City services are also not interested. I see hidden sabotage. For some reason, Osh city authorities have managed to introduce electronic tickets,» said Aziz Surakmatov.
He added that when the fee becomes electronic, the money would come to a bank, thereby reducing corruption.
