To make bus transport safer in these Covid-19 times, OMSA announced that air conditioning will no longer be used on the buses that circulate in Santo Domingo and Santiago.



Visa announces machines have been installed on OMSA buses on the Av. 27 de Febrero route, the longest in the city of Santo Domingo. The Visa contactless payment cards are valid.



This initiative, the first in the entire Caribbean, was developed using an open payment system. Now the contact payment cards, be they credit, debit or prepaid, issued by local banks or abroad, can be used to travel on the public bus system.

Great advertising for VISA. First push towards that cashless society talked about before here. But will it catch on.

No A/C on those buses? I can imagine the heat on wheels. Time to open the windows and hope for the best.
