Cash-based Fare Collection arrangement and cash-handling procedure still pose a significant problem for transport authorities, fare collection teams, and riders in Africa.
The system of fare collection in para-transit mode is characterised by exchange of cash in different denominations. Passengers pay at random according to their stops or a fixed fare irrespective of stop.
The current system, which is prone to loss of revenue, mismanagement of cash, and travel delays, is undesirable in the current bid for a world-class transport system.
As a company, Planet Projects Limited has invested heavily in this knowledge-based system which demands high-level skill and manpower development.
