Ridlr, a smart public transport app, has announced an agreement with Navi Mumbai Municipal Transport Corporation to offer mobile ticketing service for NMMT buses in Mumbai. This is the first ever online ticketing platform that will enable people to book bus tickets through mobile phones.

Commuters will now be able to book NMMT bus tickets by using the Ridlr app. The process is as simple as selecting the destination & paying through the mobile wallet for an e-ticket. This ticket is then to be shown to the conductor for validation. Currently, being piloted on selected routes, eventually the solution shall be rolled out across all NMMT routes.

Operated and owned by Mumbai-based Birds Eye Systems Private Limited, Ridlr is a commuting app providing you real time information for diverse transit modes, including train, bus and metro in your city along with mobile ticketing needs. Ridlr also gives its commuters live traffic updates so that the commuters can steer clear of congestion by taking alternate routes and make their commute stress-free.


"We saw people facing multiple issues during their daily commute such as waiting in long queues, spending a lot of time at booking counters and struggling with change to pay for tickets. This is when we thought of deploying technology that equips people to book tickets through their smartphones. Presently, Ridlr offers ticketing solutions for NMMT & Mumbai Metro and very soon we are going to be available on BEST and other transportation bodies. We want to make it a one stop app for all public transportation needs," said Brijraj Vaghani, CEO & Co-founder at Ridlr.

Ravi Khemani, Co-founder & CTO at Ridlr shared his views on this development stating, “We’re aiming to save people time by getting rid of paper tickets and long queues. Effortless ticketing would not only enrich over-all commuter experience but also benefit the transport corporation by ensuring fare collection from all the passengers.”

The authorities anticipate, availability of an alternate mode of ticketing along with conventional paper tickets would be of great help to the users. Simple process & ease of access will entice users to switch to mobile ticketing for their daily commute.
