JSC Uzbekistan Railways has begun the introduction of technologies for checking electronic travel documents with special QR-code readers to reduce the time for verification procedures when boarding trains, the company said in a statement.
Equipment testing began on one of the Afrosiyob trains. A passenger who has an electronic travel document does not need to print it in A4 format since it will be enough to present an electronic travel document on a mobile device.
Controlling officers, as well as conductors, will verify the authenticity of the electronic travel document using special devices and the passenger can freely board their seats on the train.
Currently, in the test mode, two readers are used at checkpoints at the Tashkent-Central railway station and ten – on one of the Afrosiyob trains. In the future, similar technologies will be available at all stations of the country.
