Jul 28 2017 (13:09)   Integrated Ticketing: Now 1 Ticket for Train, Metro, Bus, Auto & Taxi in Mumbai
Entry# 2364791   News Entry# 309866         Tags   Past Edits
MUMBAI: Indian Railways’ one of the most ambitious projects have been the concept of Integrated Ticketing Platform, wherein only one ticket is enough for anyone to travel in a train, metro, bus, auto or a taxi.
Now, this project will be finally started, and Mumbai has been chosen to be the first city to experience this, under the pilot project.
Passengers will, no doubt, get extremely benefitted by this initiative. But the question is, how will this get implemented?
per reports coming in, Mumbai has been chosen to be the 1st Indian city to test and run integrated ticketing platform.
Within Mumbai, this would be a project managed by Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), and they will now integrate all public transports: BEST buses, local trains, metros, black-and-yellow taxis and auto rickshaws within this system.
Right now, officials from Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation (MRVC) and Central and Western Railway officials are devising strategies to make it work in the city.
In fact, The Brihamumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST), which spearheads bus services in Mumbai and Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL), which manages the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar Metro have agreed to work together, and implement the integrated system.
Prabhat Sahai, chairman and MD, MRVC said, “MRVC will present the railways’ perspective to the MMRDA, which is the primary organisation for the integrated ticketing system,”
As per reports coming in, the whole exercise has been divided into two stages:
Stage 1: A special software will be integrated with the existing ticketing system at railway stations and metro.
Stage 2: Special entry and exit gates would be installed for making the integrated system of ticketing
According to insider information, MMRDA will float a tender for executing single ticketing platform in October. Based on the results, the same would be implemented pan-India.
