The One Pune Vidyarthi Pass is a versatile card that serves multiple purposes, catering to seamless metro travel and enabling convenient shopping and various auxiliary applications. With its user-friendly Tap-and-Go functionality, it ensures effortless transactions. Operating on a prepaid, open system based on EMV standards, this pass offers the freedom to terminate journeys without needing pre-planning, as fares are deducted only up to the exit station. This feature saves valuable time, eliminating the need to stand in queues to purchase tickets, and allows customers to use the same card for both metro and bus travel across cities and states within the country. Compliant with the National Common Mobility Card (NCMC) specifications as mandated by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and adopted by all Payment Scheme Networks in the country, the One Pune Vidyarthi Pass also offers the flexibility of being transferable, allowing it to be utilised by friends, relatives, or family members, making it a truly convenient and adaptable travel solution.
