Travel in the city public transport of Ashgabat can now be paid with bank cards "Altyn asyr" and "Maşgala".
The new service was provided as part of the digitalization of urban transport and improving the quality of travel for passengers.
According to the Agency "Turkmenavtoulaglary", the service has become available in all city buses. To pay for the fare, passengers just need to attach to the validators installed on the handrails of the entrance doors, bank cards that support NFC contactless payments.
To pay for the fare, bank plastic cards with an integrated microprocessor (chip) with a contactless interface are accepted.
It should be recalled that earlier the Turkmenavtoulaglary Agency and the Ashgabat Motor Transport Enterprise developed and successfully implemented a mobile application "Duralga" providing up-to-date information about urban transport.
