Railway e-tickets to be introduced in Kazakhstan
Kazakhstan, Astana, 10 April / Trend, D. Mukhtar /
An automated passenger boarding monitoring system is being introduced on the 'Kaspiy' train of the route 'Atyrau-Astana' this April, the Press Service of 'Passenger Transportation' JSC reported on Wednesday.
"Passenger boarding is conducted using e-tickets; the monitoring of passenger boarding is conducted automatically without printing a ticket purchased on the Internet or at a self-service payment terminal," the report says.
Now it is enough for a passenger who bought a ticket online or from a payment terminal to present the conductor their identification in the presence of a token (electronic ticket). At the request of the passenger, the conductor of the train can print out the ticket at the special terminal equipment and give it him.
Similar systems have already been introduced and being used successfully at the following trains: No. 9/10 Astana-Almaty - "Baiterek", No. 25/26 Almaty-Shymkent - "Ak sunkar", No 1/2 Astana-Almaty - "Tulpar."
