NAVI MUM­BAI: Com­muters trav­el­ling via Navi Mum­bai Mu­nic­i­pal Trans­port (NMMT) will now be able to have con­ve­nient trans­porta­tion with the help of the trans­port body’s new mo­bile tick­et­ing app.

The trans­port body has launched their much awaited e-tick­et­ing ap­pli­ca­tion ‘Ridlr’ this week. Of­fi­cials said that the aim of de­sign­ing the app was to pro­vide bet­ter ser­vices to the com­muters as a large num­ber of com­muters travel daily to Navi Mum­bai.

“We were do­ing a demo of the app since last month and de­cided to launch it in De­cem­ber it­self so that our pas­sen­gers can avail of good trans­port fa­cil­i­ties,” said Shirish Arad­wad, trans­port man­ager, NMMT.

To be­gin with, com­muters can book on­line tick­ets through the app for route num­ber 123 which plies from Borivli rail­way sta­tion to Kharghar Jal­vayu Vi­har. Within a weeks’ time, the app will be in­tro­duced on other se­lected routes as well. “We are in the process of fi­nal­is­ing all the routes which will be in­cluded in the app. The app is very sim­ple and this will surely help the com­muters as well as the trans­port body. As far as the fea­tures are con­cerned, the app is user­friendly,” said the of­fi­cial.

Presently the app is avail­able only on the an­droid plat­form. The pay­ment can be made through the mo­bile wal­let for the e-ticket af­ter se­lect­ing the des­ti­na­tion. Once the des­ti­na­tion is se­lected, the e-ticket can be shown to the con­duc­tor for val­i­da­tion. Com­muters have wel­comed the app and said it will be definitely use­ful in daily trav­el­ling.

“The ba­sic prob­lem while com­mut­ing in pub­lic trans­port is car­ry­ing the ex­act change which is of­ten a prob­lem. Also with apps like this, we can sim­ply book our tick­ets while head­ing to our jour­ney and need to wait,” said Sumeet Raghaven­dra, 21, a res­i­dent of Nerul.
