Hussein Zakaria Fadali, President of the National Railroad Authority, stated that from 1 April, Egypt’s train stations will begin implementing a programme to allow customers to purchase train tickets using Visa cards. Machines will be installed in stations to distribute tickets. This is expected to help cut back on long lines.

Twenty machines will be installed across Alexandria, Aswan, Luxor and Sidi Gaber stations to test the new programme.

There are plans to connect four of these machines to a network linked with Cairo’s Ramses station to decrease the amount of foot traffic in stations, allowing customers to purchase tickets in advance and online.
