To curb the spread of COVID-19 by reducing face-to-face transactions, the Philippine Ports Authority said Tuesday it would introduce an automated ticketing system next year.

Every port will have automated ticketing machines — equipped with an electronic reservation and ticketing assistant, the agency said.

Passengers can also reserve, book, and pay for tickets online through the Unified Electronic Ticketing System. This will also cover roll-on-roll-off ports. Government-issued IDs will be required.

The automated ticketing system will also help solve ticket scalping, overbooking and overloading, the PPA said.

Bidding for the Unified Electronic Ticketing System is slated later this year.
