Majority of the people boarding buses at one of the busiest bus stops in the Suva Nausori corridor did not face any major issues when using the E-ticketing machines in different buses.

Fijivillage was at the bus stop in front of Rishikul Sanatan College from 7 to 8.30 this morning and more than 40 buses stopped at the bus stop.

Close to 100 passengers boarded the buses from this point.      

Some of the passengers wanted some issues addressed.

32-year-old Maria Veitoyaki of Nawanawa Nadera said that she was waiting for a mini bus since 6am because she did not have money in her E-Transport card to enable her to travel in the bus this morning.

Veitoyaki says she sometimes faces difficulty in recharging her card in the mornings.

Another passenger faced a difficulty when he got on the Suva to CWM Hospital - Narere Bus with only 90 cents in his card but he was told he could not go to Kinoya.

He said the driver had entered $1.11 which was the fare for going to Suva City however his correct fare was 68 cents.

He had to get off the bus.

48-year-old Mohammed Azeem says now it will get easier to know how much money the bus companies make.
