Ooredoo announced a new partnership with Mowasalat, the public transportation company, to offer Karwa smart-card top-ups instantly via Ooredoo Mobile Money.

The tie-up means Ooredoo Money customers will be able to digitally top up their Karwa cards - used to pay for public transportation buses – directly from their mWallets, removing the need to visit any outlet around town to top up a Karwa card. Once the service is live, top-ups will be credited to Karwa cards instantly.

Speaking about the new partnership, Manar Khalifa Al-Muraikhi – Director PR and Corporate Communications at Ooredoo – said: “We’re completely committed to doing everything we can to ensure complete customer satisfaction, and this includes looking for any opportunity to help make everyday transactions quicker and easier. We’re delighted to be able to offer customers the opportunity to top up Karwa cards at the touch of a screen and we’re sure this service will be a valuable addition to the already useful Ooredoo Money.”

Khaled Kafoud, PR, Media & Government Relations Manager at Mowasalat, said:”We are happy to support and partner with Ooredoo, for our public bus-riding customers and bus card users to top up easily.  We are sure this will enhance the reach and availability of our services to  customers, encouraging them to access public transport more often”.

The Ooredoo Money app can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play, and is available in seven languages.
