E-commerce payment system and digital wallet company Paytm on Monday launched QR-based tickets for Delhi Metro’s Airport Express Line. Now, the commuters who take the Airport Express Line will no longer have to stand in queues to buy tokens or worry about recharging their Metro cards. All they have to do is purchase a QR ticket on the Paytm app which can be displayed at the automatic fare collection (AFC) gates to proceed for the journey.
With Paytm QR tickets, commuters can book tickets without having to physically visit the Metro station. All they need to do is open the Paytm 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 proceed to their journey.
A 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.”
