Orange Madagascar signs Mobile Money deal with bus operators

Money Transfer

Orange Madagascar has signed an agreement with the country's urban, regional and national bus operators to allow passengers to pay their fare by using the Mobile Money service, Agence Ecofin reports.

The same platform can be used by the transport companies to pay for fuel and other services at Total service stations, pay salaries and buy phone credit. Orange could also provide the Mobile Money service to the government to transfer subsidies to bus operators to keep prices stable despite the increase in fuel prices.
