New Strategic Cooperation Between Blue Bus and AMAN for Financial Services to Offer Ticketing Services Across +30 AMAN Branches – As First Phase
Within the framework of their partnership to provide customers with more efficient and quicker services, AMAN for Financial services – a subsidiary of Raya Holding for Financial Investments – and the leading operator in the field of collective passenger transport Blue Bus has announced expanding their cooperation to include travel reservation procedures through over 30 branches of Aman for Financial Services, in addition to +100000 points of sale of AMAN for E-Payments.
This new cooperation follows the success of the partnership between AMAN and Blue Bus over the recent years. It began with the idea of integrating services of Blue Bus and AMAN for Financial Services, then it materialized after signing a protocol of cooperation between the two parties to provide ticketing services of Blue Bus through the branches of AMAN for Financial services, in addition to the POS of AMAN for E-Payments. The service is to be expanded soon to include more of the places covered by both companies.
Commenting on this step, Hazem Moghazy, CEO of AMAN for Financial Services, emphasized AMAN’s pride of the continued cooperation with Blue Bus. Through this cooperation, clients can visit over 30 branches of AMAN for Financial Services in Cairo, Giza, and Alexandria – as an initial phase – for all booking procedures, payment, and issuance of tickets easily and securely. Branches also offer the possibility of payment for tickets in installments. Meanwhile, work is underway to offer the service in all 250 branches of AMAN for Financial Services scattered across the country, Moghazy added.
Our aim is to change the culture of people regarding electronic payment and collection, through offering required technical solutions to make the process easier for clients, said Mohamed Wahby, CEO of AMAN for E-Payments. We are taking firm steps towards providing both banked and unbanked populations in Egypt with secured e-payment channels conveniently and at a low cost. These services promote financial inclusion, as they follow the track of the transformation into a cashless society, and they also align with the vision and strategy of Egypt, he added.
Shahenaz Elshaer, the chairperson of Blue Bus, said that: We strive to maintain and expand this continued cooperation between our corporate and AMAN. We are now working as one team to provide our customers with excellent and fast services. Since offering e-payment services within our ticket reservation system on our website, about 250,000 payments have been made, with the value of tickets issued through this service exceeding EGP 65 million. As soon as we have launched Blue Bus, we have been keen to include AMAN for E-Payments as an essential provider of ticketing services through the website and the app. We are working to expand cooperation by providing an integrated reservation and payment service at AMAN for Financial Services branches, which is what we are proud of today, she added.
