Delhi-Meerut Rapid Rail To Have Automatic Fare Collection, QR Code Tickets
The Delhi-Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridor will have automatic fare collection (AFC) system and QR code tickets for commuters, the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) said Friday.
The NCRTC, in a statement, said that it has invited bids under the government's "Make In India" guidelines to procure the AFC system.
"AFC system makes a big difference in the way commuters travel in modern transit system. The contact-less way of entry/exit will be seamless, easy, comfortable, and quick. Taking a step ahead in this direction, NCRTC has adopted latest technology and innovative procurement method," the transport corporation said in a statement.
