WBTC introduces single hop-on-hop-off pass for bus, tram, ferry
The West Bengal Transport Corporation (WBTC) introduced a single hop-on-hop-off travel pass from which people can use to travel on buses, trams and ferries in the city for unlimited times on a day.
The pass will be available from January 21. According to transport sources, the pass will be available at various depots from Wednesday (January 20).
The new ticketing system is called the ‘City Travel Pass’. It is modelled on the ticketing system in London and Singapore, where visitors buy all-day tickets for city tours.
The pass will cost Rs 100 per person a day, while a 10% discount can be availed of if more than 20 passes are bought together.
People can travel on the same pass in buses, trams and ferries. This pass will be available at any WBTC bus depot.
For now, the passes can be bought from conductors on buses, trams, ferry ticket counters and at all WBTC points of sale. They will also be available at the airport and Sealdah and Howrah stations. The passes can be booked on the WBTC website.
