NEW DELHI: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has launched a common mobility card which will allow travellers to use it to travel in Metro, take feeder buses and pay for parking at 13 stations.
“This is in line with the objective of ensuring last-mile connectivity to commuters,” a DMRC spokesman said.
The metro smart card users who travel by feeder bus can now use the card for making payment. The Delhi Metro runs a fleet of more than 200 feeder buses covering 40 routes across different lines. The minimum fare in feeder buses is Rs 5 and maximum is Rs15.
The metro card can also be used to park vehicles at 13 metro stations : Akshardham , Karkarduma, Vishwavidyalaya, NHPC Chowk, Saket, Patel Chowk, Kashmere Gate, Rohini Sector 18, Rohini sector 19, Shastri Park, Mewala Maharajpur, Dilshad Garden ,Old Faridabad, and Sector 28 Faridabad — and will cover all Metro parking lots over the next two months, a DMRC spokesperson said.
To simplify the ticketing process in feeder buses, the software has also been updated in Hand Held Terminal (HHT).
