CAIRO - 5 June 2019: The Mint Authority announced on Wednesday installing a machine to change cash for coin in the main post office in Ataba after the success of the machine put in Martyrs Metro Station in Ramses Square last September.
The Ministry of Finance revealed it is coordinating with the Metro Operation Agency to introduce coin machines in other stations so that citizens would not have to stand in long queues and wait for change while purchasing tickets.
Coordination is also taking place with the Post Authority to make such machines available in post offices across the country, particularly in rural and remote areas. The machines change banknotes worth LE10 and LE20. The capacity of the recently installed machine is double that of the first one.
