Starting November 16, passengers can escape long queues at ticket counters, as the BMRCL launched Mobile QR Group Tickets.

With the introduction of Mobile QR Group Tickets, passengers will receive a QR-coded ticket uniquely encrypted with individual passenger numbers. This technological advancement facilitates easy entry and exit at the metro stations, eliminating the need for queuing up at ticket counters to buy tokens. The tickets can be scanned at the entry and exit fare collection gates.

The benefits of this new system extend beyond convenience. Passengers now have the flexibility to acquire their mobile QR tickets in advance too, whether from the comfort of their homes or offices, aligning with their schedules and travel plans.

However, 5% discount for group bookings mitigates the additional cost, offering an overall saving for the travellers. This initiative by the BMRCL aims to encourage group travel and reduce waiting times.
