The City Of Joy is known for being super savvy when it comes to public transport. Starting from hand-driven rickshaws, to autos, to packed metros, and trains to buses, there are tons of options when it comes to traveling around the city without shelling out a lot of money. And to make the matter easier and hassle-free the Calcutta State Transport Corporation (CSTC) did something great.
It is heard that bus tickets will be available for purchase directly from your phone. Yes, you heard it right. The facility will be available soon for air-conditioned buses. According to West Bengal Transport Corporation (WBTC), the same procedure will be extended to all state government buses in a few more weeks. With this latest idea, this procedure is going to be the only transport corporation in the country to have mobile ticketing. This won’t be a complicated procedure.
Follow these steps:
One has to do is enter the start location and drop point
Pay the fare on the app via digital payment or banking
Activate/Generate the ticket before boarding the transport
This ticking service is provided by a mobile application called ‘Chalo’. Undoubtedly, this service will make sure that there is no unnecessary waiting for the ticket-wale bhaiyya to purchase your bus-ticket.
