Paytm has launched QR-based tickets for Delhi Metro’s Airport Express Line. With this, commuters using the Airport Express Line will no longer have to stand in queues to buy tokens or worry about recharging their Metro cards. They can simply purchase a QR ticket on their Paytm app, which can be displayed at the automatic fare collection (AFC) gates to proceed for the journey.
QR tickets will enable commuters to book tickets without being physically present at the Metro station. All they need to do is open their app, enter source and destination stations, enter the total number of passengers and make payment. They can tap this QR ticket at AFC gate to commence their journey.
Paytm Spokesperson said, “We are already contributing to almost 25% of passenger revenue (smart card recharges, token revenue, etc) on DMRC network. With Paytm QR tickets, we are excited to further extend & strengthen our partnership with Delhi Metro commuters.”
Paytm provides multiple products and services for Bengaluru Metro, Hyderabad Metro, Delhi Metro and Mumbai Metro like Metro Card recharges, mobile-based ticketing and trip passes. Also, it is the first company to launch QR-based tickets for Mumbai Metro which is now being introduced in Delhi as well.
