The social pass is aimed at the most disadvantaged populations and specific social groups, such as students, veterans and people with disabilities, according to a statement to which Lusa had access.

The Economic Commission of the Council of Ministers of Angola also approved a memorandum on the implementation of the ticketing system, an integrated mechanism to be used in public transport, which consists of paying the value of tickets electronically, using devices such as smart cards to facilitate technical and financial management.

"The Integrated Ticketing System will allow the introduction of transport tickets, ensuring greater control of revenue for operators, as well as greater rigor in the allocation of subsidies by the State," the same document states.
