Reliance Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd backed Mumbai Metro One has joined hands with global digital payments firm PayPal for enabling online recharge payments, helping the latter in streamlining mass transit.
“PayPal’s integration with Mumbai Metro payment network mirrors the agility of the transit system and marks our entry into the mass transit sector, giving commuters the ease of a seamless and safe payment experience,” said Devendra Trivedi, Director (Channel Partnerships), PayPal India.
Since the inception of Mumbai Metro, Reliance Infrastructure has initiated several measures to revolutionise its ticketing system and set-up a digitally advanced organisation encouraging cashless mode of payments, said a spokesperson.
With the help of latest technology, it championed mobile ticketing and was the first metro in India to start digital payments during the demonetisation in November 2016, for the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar 11.40km-long Mumbai Metro.
The metro commuters can avail the new service for recharging their smart cards by logging onto the Mumbai Metro website (www.reliancemumbaimetro.com) and opt for the PayPal payment gateway, besides on the company’s mobile website and internet-enabled mobile phones.
