In good news for commuters, the Mumbai Metro One has tied up with Instamojo to launch the facility for commuters to buy tickets using debit cards and credit cards.
According to Mumbai Mirror, 4.50 lakh commuters of Mumbai Metro One can now pay for their tickets by debit/credit cards for all kinds of ticketing products like single journey token or return journey token. ‘Instamojo’ is the technology partner facilitating this cashless initiative where there is no need for point-of-sale (POS) terminal, or installing any payment apps on the commuter’s smartphone, making it an Electronic Point of Sale, said an official spokesperson for Mumbai Metro One Pvt. Ltd. (MMOPL).
Commuters can scan the static QR code or type the URL at any Metro ticket counters, enter the debit/credit card details, make the payment for tickets or recharge smart cards and travel. The biggest advantage is that the control of payment lies with the commuter as there is no need to hand over the card to anybody for swiping and the payments can be made by the commuter before or after coming to a ticket counter, and show the confirmation SMS to get the ticket. An MMOPL spokesperson told Mumbai Mirror, “We are confident that link-based payment will empower our commuters and be a breakthrough in payment system of any Metro in the country.”
