TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The operator of Ngurah Rai International Airport, Bali, is implementing non-cash transaction at car parking tollgates. This is the airport's initial step to support the government's agenda of reducing cash transactions.
"This is one of the management's way of making parking payment easier and faster," the airport's co-general manager for commercial operations Rahadian D Yogisworo said in Badung, Monday, Sept. 18.
The airport is working with Bank Mandiri as a partner in running the program, using the bank's e-money instrument. The partnership had begun its pilot on Sept. 15.
At the car toll-gates, there are currently 11 automated payment machines. Seven machines are located at the exit of the international terminal three in domestic, and one at the cargo terminal.
"The system is expected to reduce traffic at the exit tollgates, especially during peak hours from 12:00 noon to 9:00 pm," he said.
The system now only works with Bank Mandiri's e-money, but later other instruments will be accepted.
