With reference to Edward Kumar's letter (FT 12/01) on the balances of disposable etickets, it's real sad to see how consumers are being left disappointed and losing money.
I also use the 68 cents fare mostly. The $5 card drags the least loss of 24 cents, the $10 card draws a loss of 48 cents. So the smallest card of $2 draws the heaviest loss missing the stage fare by four cents only.
But the problem with fancy balances occurs on normal e-ticketing cards too. I believe one never gets down to zero.
While lots of people still get paid weekly why can't we recharge bus fares for one week like $8.20 or $15.55?
As any nation Fiji wants to become a vibrant and modern society and the economy is one aspect of that only.
However, I believe in a democracy one would expect to be given a choice even when it comes down to paying bus fares.Home | Top
