Mumbai Metro One claims to be the world’s first Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) to offer this service. In addition, Mumbai Metro One Launches e-Ticket on WhatsApp Facility, making it easier for Mumbaikars to travel.
Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL), which handles the city’s metro service on the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar route, unveiled an ‘e-ticket on WhatsApp’ option on Thursday. It is the first Mumbai Metro online ticket app.
According to a press release, Mumbai Metro One is the world’s first MRTS (Mass Rapid Transit System) to offer e-tickets over WhatsApp.
How to book metro ticket online?
According to the company, this was an expansion of the “Paper QR Ticket” that was previously offered at ticket counters. Travellers will need to send a text ‘Hi’ to 9670008889 to use the service and receive a Mumbai metro QR ticket.
Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar is Mumbai’s first metro route, having opened in 2014. The daily population of Mumbai Metro One is 2,60,000.
This is why online Mumbai Metro ticket booking is important.
MMOPL also claimed to have implemented other technological breakthroughs, such as bank combination cards, mobile QR tickets, and loyalty programmes.
In other news, WhatsApp just announced that it will expand its payments service to 100 million users in India. The service had previously been limited to 40 million customers, but the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) has now expanded the limit to 100 million. Although this reduction is welcome news for WhatsApp, it may still impede the service’s growth in India, where it has over 500 million active users.
Mumbai Metro monthly pass online
Mumbai Metro passengers now get unlimited travel on monthly passes which cost up to Rs 1,400. The monthly pass currently provides only 45 travels on the full network that links Ghatkopar and Versova.
The new monthly pass costs Rs 25 more than the old one. The 45-trip monthly ticket will remain accessible when the new pass is introduced.
