Bus lines in the Metro are still using paper tickets. Every day that I commute I would collect a couple of them; in 30 days, 150+ which are all thrown away immediately after it’s served it’s purpose. Multiply this by the daily number of commuters. Such waste.
MMDA should have a talk with bus operators or their association and devise a paperless bus ticketing mechanism such as that used in MRT. LTO should do the same with provincial bus operators.
