NAGPUR: Mahametro received & tested the Automatic fare collection (AFC) gates on Tuesday. For commercial operation, AFC gates are mandatory. Fortunately, Mahametro received the AFC gates. Mahametro also ensured demonstration of AFC gates in the presence of managing director Brijesh Dixit.
The AFC Gates Will Be Installed Soon at These Stations-
- Airport South
- New Airport
- “These sleek gates are having unique seamless design that will add to the beauty of Metro rail stations. The gates will be installed at the entry and exit points at the stations. Passengers will purchase ticket or smart card through ticket operating machines placed in unpaid areas. Then passengers will clear these gates without any hassle as these gates primarily accept smart cards and QR tickets,” Mahametro said.
- There will be three types of QR code tickets— single journey, return journey & group tickets.
- Mahametro said,”Group tickets will also be made available for a group of passengers travelling together. Category-wise tickets for adult, child, differently-abled and senior citizens will be also facilitated. Passengers will be also given discount on tickets as per eligibility. Loyalty programmes will be launched in which reward will be given to frequent passengers.”
