COMBO TICKET FOR MMTS-BUS.
The proposal for a combined train and bus ticket for MMTS passengers is likely to materialise soon. The MMTS project authorities forwarded the proposal to the Railway Board seeking its approval for introduction of the combo ticket. The combo ticket is likely to increase the occupancy rate both in the MMTS trains and MMTS link buses. The officials of the MMTS project, railways and RTC held a meeting a fortnight ago and finalised the proposal for the combo ticket. It has been proposed to introduce three types of combo tickets.
They are a monthly pass, which enables people to travel by APSRTC ordinary buses and MMTS trains from anywhere to anywhere and a monthly pass, which permits people to travel in MMTS trains and link buses from anywhere to anywhere. The third one is a Travel as You Like one-day ticket which allows people to travel in any MMTS train or ordinary bus.
