August. Coyol Free Zone Park, specialized in Life Sciences, takes a new and instrumental step on its path towards sustainability. Starting this month, the Free Zone will implement an electronic payment system in 200 bus units, saving 2.5 tons of paper per year.
Currently, this Park provides bus services for the 12,000 strong workforce who are employed by its 31 companies. As of this month, they will pay electronically with Ride Coyol. As a result, 20,000 daily tickets will no longer be printed for Coyol Free Zone employees and contractors.
Ride Coyol will eliminate the use of cash on buses – an initiative that is safer and more hygienic for users and drivers, and contributes to the campaign against COVID19.
“Ride Coyol will allow us to get to know the users better, provide them with notifications in real-time and know exactly the arrival-departure times and duration of the routes, and in so doing create a record of the routes coming in and out of the Free Zone,” detailed Andrea Navarro, Digital Marketing Manager and Customer Service.
Coyol Free Zone is the pioneer park in implementing this payment system, which will also allow users to maximize their time and avoid queues to print tickets, reduce the consumption of paper, ink and generate a maintenance history of each unit to offer the best possible service.
Ride Coyol is a project developed by the company CODE for Coyol Free Zone with Go Pass technology and begins this August in its first stage, which will later add other functionalities of the service.
