MUMBAI (Metro Rail News): Commuters of the Mumbai Metro One Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar line may purchase tickets over WhatsApp without going to a ticket counter. The ticket will be delivered as a QR (Quick Response) code.
Commuters must send a WhatsApp “Hi” to 967000 8889. A direct link will be immediately sent that may be utilised to buy tickets.
The QR code will be sent once the payment has been made, and it must be verified at the Automated Fare Collection gate before being allowed to enter the platform.
The QR code will include information on the trip’s type (single/return), origin and destination, fare, and the date and time the ticket was issued.
Previously, commuters had to provide an OTP at the ticket counter to receive the QR code on their mobile device. According to a Metro official, the goal is to increase the number of riders who use digital ticketing methods.
