The Himachal Road Transport Corporation (HRTC) has launched a cashless payment facility for passengers at its Karsog depot. Through e-ticket machines, travellers can pay the fare via online mode.

Approximately 50 e-ticket machines equipped with QR code scanning capability have been deployed at the Karsog depot by the HRTC.

The e-ticket machines operate on Android platform and utilise Intelligent Ticket Machine System (ITMS) technology. These are connected to Internet via SIM card, enabling the bus conductors accept payments seamlessly. This not only simplifies the fare payment system for the passengers but also eliminates the need of carrying the exact change or worrying about getting the balance amount back.

The HRTC management plans to encourage the use of the e-ticket machines and incentivise the conductors who achieve higher volumes of fare collection. The incentive programme from April 1 to December 31 will reward the top-performing conductors with prizes.

The Regional Manager of the Karsog depot, Humesh Kumar, said the introduction of cashless payment option on buses was benefiting passengers, enhancing their overall travelling experience.
