PANAJI: Chief Minister Pramod Sawant today announced that his government is moving towards digitisation of the services of Kadamba Transport Corporation Limited (KTCL).
“We are slowly moving towards digitisation of Kadamba Corporation right from ticketing to other services. Govt wants to reduce pollution by getting in more electric buses,” said CM Sawant.
He further said that in a bid to save the environment, the state government is bringing in more and more electric buses.
“We are slowly replacing diesel buses with electric buses to save the environment,” he added.
The Kadamba Transport Corporation Ltd (KTCL) launched its cashless, digital ticketing system in association with mobile payments and e-commerce platform Paytm at the KTC bus stand.
This system will operate through QR codes that will be displayed at various locations across KTC bus stands in the State and on the KTC buses.
Commuters can scan the QR codes prior to their journey and make the payment online using the app. An e-ticket generated after payment can be used to board the bus to the destination within one hour.
