Uttar Pradesh government led by CM Yogi Aditynath in sync with PM Narendra Modi-led Central government is giving a massive push to the ambitious Digital India movement. Now, Uttar Pradesh Road Transport Corporation (UPSRTC) is set to witness a major change. According to a report by ANI, (UPSRTC) has decided to also introduce Electronic Ticketing Machines (ETMs) on all its buses.
This change will take place in span of over the next six months. The decision has been taken to handle all types of payment modes to buy tickets.
What are Electronic Ticketing Machines? How it helps?
By means of Electronic Ticketing Machines, a ticket can be bought through:-
- Credit Cards
- Debit Cards
- Smart Cards
Reportedly, around 15,000 Electronic Ticketing Machines are set to be introduced.
Moreover, in addition to the decision related to Electronic Ticketing Machines, the UPSRTC board has approved the new policy of Telescopic Fare System (TFS).
Under this system, passengers in long-distance travel will benefit from a reduction in the ticket prices.
New ticket prices will be applied as a three-month trial on some routes, and if the concept goes well it will be implemented in long-distance routes too.
The decisions are expected to benefit passengers immensely.
