Wing, City team up for cashless bus payment

Electronic payment service provider Wing and the Phnom Penh City Bus Authority (PPCBA) on Tuesday joined hands to offer a cashless payment option for the city’s buses, making travelling on public transport smarter and easier.

A PPCBA press release issued on Tuesday said the venture is the first of its kind and that Wing will provide two kinds of cards – Blue and Green – which allow customers to use local bus services with just the swipe.

Users can hop on and off with no need for cash, enjoying greater flexibility and stress-free travel when riding one of the city’s fleets of over 150 buses.

Wing Chief Executive Officer Jojo Malolos said the Wing-PPCBA tie-up will change the face of public transport in Phnom Penh, offer a quick and easy travel solution for everyone and a smooth journey towards a cashless society.

“We are very excited to be part of something new for Cambodia. The PPCBA cards will revolutionise the way people use public transport in the city,” said Malolos.

Launched in 2014, PPCBA is a municipal public transport system that serves capital residents. On average, about 20,000 people use the city’s buses daily.
