The president of the Caracas Metro, Graciliano Ruíz Gamboa, reiterated that fare payments in cash will not be accepted as of today, Monday, March 21. He stressed that payment will only be received by debit card, in order to promote digital media and give weight to the use of the digital bolivar.
He indicated that the price of the ticket will remain at 0.1 bolívares and the card at five bolívares.
«We have the platform in all the stations, we have the entire platform installed, we have an entire fare collection system that we have been evolving for more than a year, perfecting it; we already have debit points, with biopayment systems, with all the internet part ».
He specified that the metrobus system will continue to accept cash, however, he warned that media such as BusCaracas will also accept digital payments.
