Ultramar manager Arturo Baez said that although fares have increased in Cozumel, ferry rates in Isla Mujeres aren't changing. He said they are in the second stage of implementing the new digital system for ticketing that uses scanners. In a few weeks they be issuing new credentials that can accumulate points and will offer discounts at more than 4000 businesses, and also includes a subscription to the "Press Reader" application that provides access to thousands of newspapers and magazines worldwide. Ultramar staff are now equipped with electronic tablets for counting passengers. Customers can access an app that displays their credits (tickets) and the number of accumulated points that they can exchange.LINK
