Rwanda: Travellers to buy bus tickets using Tigo Cash

Money Transfer

People travelling to upcountry destinations are now able to pay their fares using Tigo’s mobile money service, Tigo Cash.

“The facility will help all subscribers registered on the Tigo Cash mobile money service to buy bus tickets using their phones, from anywhere and at anytime of the day,” said Daniel Barrientos, the head of mobile financial services at the telecom service provider at the launch of the service last week.

Using Innovys Limited as their platform, the facility is currently working with Volcano Buses. Subscribers will be charged Rwf150 each time they buy tickets using the service.
