Now buy platform tickets on the UTS mobile app
In an effort to promote the UTS (Unreserved Ticketing System) on the mobile app, South Western Railway’s Hubballi Division has launched a special campaign to raise awareness among rail commuters.
The application was developed by the Center for Railway Information Systems (CRIS) through which passengers can book unreserved tickets online.
Already, frequent announcements, posting of posters in prominent places have been undertaken at stations to inform passengers about the features of the UTS app, how to download it and how to use it.
Now, under the special drive, UTS app help desks have also been set up at major Hubballi Division stations to assist passengers. Information about the application is also published on social networks. Information leaflets are also distributed to passengers, according to a statement.
The app can be downloaded from Google Play Store for Android mobiles, Windows Store for Windows mobiles and Apple Store for iPhone users. Passengers can book reservationless travel, subscriptions and platform tickets using the app.
Hubballi Division Senior Business Manager (Coordination), Hareitha S., said in the statement that the app will not only promote cashless transactions but also ensure hassle-free ticketing.
Using the mobile app, passengers can book general tickets from an originating station within a 20 km radius of their location.
