Digital ticketing solution soon for Delhi Transport

The government on Sunday announced that all of its Delhi Transport Corporation and Delhi Integrated Multi-Modal Transit System operated buses will soon offer digital ticketing solutions that are National Common Mobility Card compliant in an effort to better serve the 4 million bus commuters in the national capital.

On January 8th, 2023, the transport department will be holding an e-tender for this. The Delhi public transportation system will be able to transition away from manual ticketing thanks to the NCMC- compliant digital ticketing technology, starting with buses.

A senior official claim that 4 million passengers take buses every day on average. A record of each journey must be kept in order to better plan the number of buses to use throughout Delhi. The "Route Rationalization Study" carried out by the Transportation Department includes the "digital ticketing solution," he added.

"The transport department has put out a tender for the supply and maintenance of electronic ticketing machines for 7,500 buses. Additionally, it entails allowing customers to purchase tickets using smart cards rather than cash, according to the official.

According to a representative, the capability to purchase discounted daily or monthly passes and tickets online has also been added. He added that pink tickets will be printed by the ETM device and would allow ladies to travel for free.

"Delhi has been committed to providing more convenient and safe transit for its inhabitants," said Kailash Gahlot, the minister of transport for Delhi. We wanted to completely abandon the current manual ticketing system in which neither the origin nor the destination is recorded at all.

According to him, "Starting with bus and metro rail, the NCMC enabled solution will help them utilise the same card for multi-modal transit networks.
