Electronic ticket vending for DTC buses


Shivani Chaturvedi | August 11, 2010

The Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) buses will soon switch from the tedious manual ticketing to electronic ticketing. With a handy electronic ticketing machine (ETM), the conductors will just have to enter in a commuter's boarding stop and his/her destination alighting-stop and the fare shall be automatically calculated and a printed ticket generated.

DTC has placed an order with Delhi Integrated Mutimodal System (DIMS) for 5,000 ETMS. DIMS is executing the project while VeriFone will supply the ETMs.

Under the new system the DTC officials will be able to monitor sale of tickets more efficiently. With all ETMs logged to a central server, the DTC authorities can check the sale of tickets any time. This would help the corporation know the particulars of the boarding of passengers from fare stages and important points, says a senior DTC officer. This in turn will help in organising the schedules according to traffic demand. The ticket will bear all details - boarding-point, alighting-point and even the time when it has been issued.

The machines, each priced between Rs 13,000 to 14,000, will be procured in time for the Commonwealth Games, the official hoped.
