Vodafone Fiji yesterday clarified that a bus company’s daily eTicketing

collection is remitted into the company’s bank account, less any agreed fees and charges.

This was the confirmation by the Head of e-Commerce and Corporate Affairs Shailendra Prasad following a walk out from Dominion Transport Limited bus drivers over wage issues.

The bus company based in Nadi operates services from the Nadi Bus Stand to Malamala, Moala, Korovuto, Koromakawa, Tunalia, Raqa, Loqi, and Vunamoli.

On Tuesday, the assistant managing director for Dominion Transport Leena Nadan said the drivers stopped driving on Monday because they complained that they were not paid.

“It is very difficult for us because we receive the fuel cost and the wages from the bank.

The bank told us that they will only give what they received from the e-Ticketing machines.”

However, Mr Prasad said: “You may seek confirmation from their bankers of the receipt of these payments. Vodafone does not make any deposits for any bus operator’s staff wages separately.

We transfer the individual bus operators total e-ticketing revenue collections less any fee and charges directly to their nominated bank accounts on a daily basis.”

Since Tuesday more than 22 drivers have refused to resume work with the buses parked at the garage.
