E-ticket project will be launched

Technology of purchasing train tickets via the Internet in Kazakhstan is unified with the world practice: ticket is remote, a paper version is printed out and passenger enters the train by fixed electronic registration.
 
The project will start at 7.00 pm today. Ticket sales are available at WWW.EPAY.RAILWAYS.KZ.
 
- At the moment the scheme was introduced as a pilot on the route Almaty -Astana (train 001/ 002) , Oral -Astana (train 057 /058) , Atyrau-Almaty (train 077/ 078) , Aktobe , Astana (087 / 088 ), - announced today at a press conference in the office of the national company " Kazakhstan temir zholy" in Astana manager of KTZ branch -"Directorate of Information Technologies" Sergey Nikitenko . All regions of Kazakhstan will be covered by online sales in 2015.
 
By purchasing a ticket from a computer connected to the Internet, the passenger does not refer to the cashier as before. He comes directly to the train.
 
 
 
At the moment of landing conductor registers passenger using a mobile terminal.
 
Traditional sales through railroad station in this case remain. However this time while referring to JSC "Passenger transportation" cashiers passengers will get not usual form of the ticket, but fiscal ticket that looks like a receipt for the transaction through the payment terminal. In this travel document all travel parameters are reflected: the number and direction of the route, train, wagon and seat. The same information at the time of purchase falls into electronic recorders of the conductors. While boarding passenger shows fiscal ticket, which is going to be registered by the conductor, and then takes his place in the coach.
 
The new technology represents the most advanced form of an e-ticket, eliminates the paper travel documents and chooses convenient methods of payment for travel. It provides automation of the sales process and excludes costs associated with the human factor, creates a significant financial impact for passenger service as well.
