Electronic Tickets Project in Ukraine Suffered Lack of Money
Despite the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Ukraine announced that in one in three “Ukrposhta” post offices will be open booking office for sale air, railway and bus tickets to the end of 2009, the official information demonstrates the contrary. The problem is that there are not enough funds instate budget.
The implementation of this system is planned to invest UAH14 million (USD1.5 million) in 2009, and the total cost of the project is UAH45 million (USD5 million). The results of pilot production don’t impress. About 35,000 requests for information were processed and only 89 tickets were bought out in January, 2009.
