The Delhi Cabinet has approved the transport department's proposal to provide a discount of 10% in fares to bus passengers in the national capital on booking tickets through the 'One Delhi' app. The Delhi government said the revised app can also be used to book pink passes that allow women to travel free of cost in public buses.
The same Delhi government said in a statement that passengers can book pink tickets and passes by scanning the QR code inside the bus and using this app by selecting the ticket fare or source and destination stop. The app is available in English and Hindi. The same app will also tell the estimated time of new Virgin buses coming to a particular stop and the nearest available charging station for electric vehicles.
At the same time, Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot said that the upgrade of the app is important, especially in the midst of the ongoing epidemic, as it will help in reducing the spread of virus essays among passengers through surface connectivity. I am hoping that with state-of-the-art buses, enhanced care and security facilities, and the right incentives such as we are launching through e-ticketing app and common mobility card, it will greatly facilitate the people of Delhi to adopt public transport. The Government informed that Delhi has a combined fleet of 6,750 buses (DTC and Orange Cluster) and on average 49 lakh people can be transported to the destination.
