Paytm has enabled cashless payments at bus counters operated by state transport undertakings (STUs) in Uttarakhand and Rajasthan, in a move to open up a more efficient and hassle-free ticket booking process.
Paytm users can simply scan the Paytm QR Code and send the exact amount to book their bus tickets, at zero transaction fee.
Kiran Vasireddy, Vice President, Paytm said, “With this use case, Paytm has achieved a breakthrough in bringing digital payments to the unreserved bus ticketing sector. This is only a sneak peek into how the convenience of Mobile Wallets can revolutionise the transport sector. Going forward, we will enable the Paytm Wallet at various state-owned as well as private operators to drive our vision of making payments cashless across India.”
Paytm also allows users to book train tickets via IRCTC directly from their website and app.
