A new mobile application will be launched soon to offer needed information about trains schedule and prices, the board chairman of Transport Information Technology Co. (Trans IT) said on Sunday.
Khaled Attia said the company will launch an experimental new system for booking train tickets by Eidul Adha in line with directives of Transport Minister Hisham Arafat.
Under the new system, commuters can buy tickets via visas or pre-paid cards of the Egyptian National Railways (ENR), he said.
He noted that that the ENR cards can be charged to pay for tickets via stations' windows or ticket-issuing machines which exist at some stations and clubs.
The cash in cards can be reimbursed any time, he said.
