Almaty. January 11. KazTAG - SMS payment is available on Almaty buses served by private companies, said Alexey Besedin, director of SMSBus Ltd.

He has confirmed earlier spread information that SMS payment is unavailable on the buses served by Almatyelectrotrans Ltd.
"The service agreement was concluded with Green Bus Ltd but the company stopped operation in Almaty, its routes were transferred to Almatyelectrotrans. Almatyelectrotrans did not sign an agreement with us, now the buses are on the route, our system does not support them. We asked them to sign the agreement in early 2018 , we agreed it, no tenders were needed, the management had to take the decision, but they haven't replied yet," he added.
