  • Indian metro systems today are deploying innovative fare systems, especially interoperable electronic payment methods such as QR codes and contactless ticketing, smartcards, bank cards, mobile wallets and near-field communication (NFC)-enabled devices.
  • The focus is on unified, interoperable and integrated access across various transportation solutions. The National Common Mobility Card (NCMC) is a major step in this direction. In November 2021, the Haryana State Transport Department signed an MoU to implement the NCMC open-loop automatic fare collection system (AFCS) in the state. Metro systems in Kochi, Nagpur, Noida and a few sections in Delhi have NCMC-enabled AFCS.
  • Contactless smartcards have so far been the most popular choice, but over the past few years, cities have been moving towards open-loop and account-based ticketing (ABT) systems. Kochi Metro is the first system in India to put in place a financial institution (FI)-led open-loop smartcard-based AFCS for metros. Several metro systems, including Chennai, are also planning to transition to an open-loop system.
  • Very recently, a contract has been awarded for an EMV-based open-loop AFCS for the Delhi-Meerut regional rapid transit system (RRTS) corridor. Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation Limited (UPMRCL) has also invited bids to implement the NCMC open-loop AFCS for Kanpur Metro.
  • QR codes are fast replacing single-journey smart tokens, thus saving costs for operators. The Kochi Metro Rail Corporation launched the Kochi1 app to generate QR code tickets and offer other functionalities such as managing card balances. Similarly, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) launched QR code-based tickets on the Airport Express Line, whereby commuters can book tickets using the Ridlr and Paytm mobile applications.
  • DMRC has also begun the deployment of a contactless fare payment system, which will allow passengers to make fare payments through contactless bank cards, NFC-based and QR code-based mobile ticketing, as well as QR code-based paper tickets. The deployment is expected to be completed in 2022.
  • Apart from this, Mumbai Metro One Private Limited has an application, called Skiiip Q, to generate QR codes. Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited also recently launched a QR code-based e-ticketing system, in association with MakeMyTrip, for metro passengers.
  • Metro corporations’ key interest in the near term lies in developing AFC systems compatible with the NCMC scheme. This comes as a significant business opportunity for AFC and technology service providers.
  • The penetration of bank cards and smartphones, increasing ridership, emphasis on integration and interoperability, introduction of new business models to tap the low-value payments market, development of mobile ticketing apps and mobile wallets, and launch of new technologies and innovations are the key drivers for the deployment of advanced fare collection systems.
  • The mission of this conference is to analyse key trends, discuss recent developments, highlight opportunities, discuss best practices, and showcase innovations and new technologies in the ticketing and fare collection systems industry in India.
