Railway e-tickets available this November

The Vietnam Railway Corporation (VRC) will sell tickets online from this November under a deal recently signed with FTP-FIS-TeleHouse joint venture. 

Started on July 31, the VND197 billion (US$9.3 million) project will help install and perfect the online-selling systems by November 2015, making the service available on VRC website, vending machines at train stations or agents nationwide, said VRC Deputy General Director Doi Sy Hung. 

Domestic or international payment cards will be accepted for transactions. 

Currently, railway transport accounts for only 0.5% of the total passenger transport market and 1% of total freight transport. 

The sector plans to raise the rates to 13% of passenger transport and 14% of freight transport by 2020.
