Vodafone has considered favourably the request by Consumer Council to reduce the minimum e-ticketing card top up amount from $5.00 to $2.00. In fact Vodafone had also been getting feedback from its registration teams deployed around the country on the consumers’ feedback on the minimum top up amount. Accordingly, Vodafone had been working with its distributors and top up agents in an effort to reduce the minimum top up amount to around $3.00.
However, after receiving the feedback from Consumer Council today wherein they have suggested that the minimum top up to be reduced to $2.00 given the hardship faced on the ground by the poor, Vodafone is happy to go with along with Consumer Council’s recommendations. Accordingly and effective from Wednesday 8th May, e-ticketing card holders will be able to top up their cards with a minimum amount of $2.00. Given that one stage fare on the bus is 70c one way and $1.40 return, the $2.00 minimum top up is the lowest we can go. We are happy to make travelling with e-ticket more affordable and easier for the travelling public.
