Just like Delhi Metro, the city buses could soon have smart card-based ticketing. Delhi Integrated Multi-Modal Transit System is doing a trial run at the Millennium Depot.
These smart cards would work more like debit cards. The system will use electronic readers that deduct fares from the accounts of riders entering buses, eliminating the need for tickets and paper passes, and reducing the requirement for cash.
But this system will be different from that of the Delhi Metro. While moving in and out of buses, commuters will have to give their cards to the bus conductor who would be carrying the electronic readers. Swiping the cards, the conductors will have to enter the destination code.
