As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, recently a new e-ticketing system was presented at the Zlatna vrata cinema for the Split Promet bus service, which will be partially launched from the 1st of July, 2022.

The value of the project stands at almost 24 million kuna, with 60.48 percent having been financed by the European Union (EU). The suppliers of the system are King ICT and Corvus Info, as reported by Slobodna Dalmacija.

The system for the Split Promet bus service was presented by Zoran Ranogajec, Head of Key Customers at King ICT.

“We’re getting closer to large and developed cities and we currently have the most advanced system in all of Croatia. Its modules include vending machines, ticket sales, ticket sales from drivers but with the use of bank cards, applications for controllers, in-vehicle ticket validators, and mobile and web applications available via the Android and iOS platforms,” said Ranogajec.

He noteed that with this system, ticket purchases for the Split Promet bus service will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and those tickets will be able to be validated upon boarding the bus, and passengers will also be provided with tickets in electronic form. In addition to all of that, there will be a map of the lines and location of the new ticket machines throughout the city.

Timetable information for the Split Promet bus service will be made constantly available in real time, and there will be panels with information on the city’s local bus lines at the stations and at the terminal itself, and this will also be possible to view via the web application.

Miroslav Delic, the the Split Promet bus service’s director, said that the implementation of the system will take place as of the beginning of July to the beginning of August and pointed out that the current zonal tariff model will change.

“Now each local self-government unit determines the tariff according to its revenues, the changes are in line with the Traffic Recovery Plan from 2019 to 2023. We’re realising a vision that many once viewed with a healthy dose of disbelief. The direction in which public transport will continue to develop remains in the domain of politics,” concluded Delic.
