L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad (L&TMRH) has claimed to have become the country’s first metro to roll out an end-to-end digital payment enabled metro ticket booking through WhatsApp eTicketing facility in association with its delivery partner Billeasy on Monday.

This brand-new service enables the Metro riders to purchase an e-ticket on their own WhatsApp number, which can be displayed at the Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) gates to proceed for the journey. This facility is in addition to other digital modes of ticket booking viz. TSavaari and other third-party payment apps.

The rider will then get metro e-ticket URL on the registered WhatsApp number which can be downloaded. The downloaded e-ticket can be flashed at the entry gates, said a press release.
