Mumbai Metro, Axis Bank and Mastercard launch One Mumbai Metro Card
Mumbai Metro announced the launch of 'One Mumbai Metro Card' to ensure contactless and cashless travel for Mumbaikars on Thursday, along with Mastercard and Axis Bank. The open-loop contactless prepaid card may be used as a part of the daily transit journey with just a tap.
The card offers essential features such as easy to use, contactless and top-up, speed and convenience for one's metro fare, and other daily expenses such as restaurants, shopping and groceries.
One can purchase 'One Mumbai Metro Card' from Mumbai Metro Station counters.
A media statement says that Mastercard has continued to contribute to changing the way India commutes and helping the transit eco-system go completely digital with this solution.
This card can be used for all regular purchases like groceries, tickets, medicines and food. The Mastercard's solution enables the transit agencies to design, develop and deploy customised prepaid digital payment solutions, delivering an essential contactless transit experience to riders.
It is another step in helping the government digitise transport and build the country's digital economy, supported by the highest standards of safety that Mastercard is known for.
Sanjeev Moghe, EVP and Head, Cards and Payments, Axis Bank, told the media that this collaborated effort with Mumbai Metro One. Mastercard provides commuters with a unique and seamless payment experience, reducing the need for a customer to carry multiple cards and that it supports regular payments across retail and e-commerce through a single card and they are confident that that 'One Mumbai Metro Card' will encourage commuters to go digital, as India makes rapid strides towards becoming a cashless economy in this endeavour.
