This initiative will enable the commuters to avail the option to pay from their Ola Money wallet at the DMRC website, reported the DNA.
“We hope to make the transition smoother for metro commuters by integrating Ola Money as a payment mechanism for metro rides. Other than offering an eco-friendly and affordable daily commuting option, DMRC is committed to encouraging people to use online payment alternatives,” said Anuj Dayal, executive director (corporate communications) of DMRC.
“We are extremely delighted to be working closely with Delhi Metro to take the mission of a cashless India forward. Millions of people travel by Delhi metro and they recharge their metro cards on a regular basis. This integration will make the process simpler and seamless as they would be able to use their Ola Money balance to recharge their cards with just a few taps on the Ola Money app or by visiting the DMRC website,” said Anand Subramanian, senior director-marketing communications at Ola.
Recently, the cumulative ridership of the Delhi Metro crossed the one billion mark, consolidating DMRC’s position as one of the top 10 Metro systems in the world. More than 70 per cent of total Delhi metro riders use metro cards and recharge it on a regular basis.
