Digital payment option introduced for ‘Mo Bus’ commuters in Odisha

Bhubaneswar: With an aim to promote cashless transactions, the Capital Region Urban Transport (CRUT) introduced digital payment option on pilot basis in ‘Mo Bus’.

“Initially, this facility is available on Route 16 and 20. We will expand this facility on other routes after getting feedback from commuters,” said Dipti Mahapatro, General Manager, CRUT.

She further said, “To reduce transactions with currency notes or coins in Mo Bus and minimize the contact between guides and commuters, we thought of introducing digital payment through QR code option. From the very beginning, Mo Bus had an option of online payment through app. This new digital payment option will further facilitate cashless transaction.”

This digital payment option will allow commuters to buy tickets through digital wallets. In this payment mode, commuters can scan a QR code available with the guides and their payment will be made to the CRUT bank account directly. Commuter and guide both will get confirmatory message after the transaction is done successfully.

She also informed, “Soon Tap & Pay card will be introduced in Mo Bus. The move is aimed at improving contactless payment and to make the Mo Bus journey more enjoyable, hassle-free and at par with the best bus services in the world.”
