Now, travel in DTC buses and Metro trains with 'One' card
NEW DELHI: As part of its vision to transform the public Transport System in the national Capital, Delhi government on Monday along with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), launched rebranded 'Common Mobility Card 'ONE', with tagline 'one Delhi, one Ride'. After launching the card at the Raj ghat Bus Depot, Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot asked Transport Department and DMRC to work towards a single travel card.
On the occasion DMRC Managing Director Mangu Singh, Commissioner of Transport Varsha Joshi, DTC MD Manoj Kumar, DDC vice-chairperson Jasmin Shah and other senior officials of the Department were present.
The newly designed cards will have a background of cubic grid in bright shades of red and yellow. It will also have a circular unit with sketches of Metro trains, DTC buses, auto rickshaws and Delhi's monuments around it. It will now carry the logos of all three transport operators in the city – DMRC, DTC and Delhi Government.
Explaining the thought behind the ONE card, Transport Minister Gahlot said, "For majority of the people to switch over to public transport, they need to see and experience Delhi's Metro and buses in the same light –as part of a well-integrated and seamless public transport system."
The Transport minister said that Delhi government will soon be launching a common app through which commuters can plan multi-modal trips including buses and metro from any point to any point in Delhi. They will also be able to see the live locations of Delhi's buses.
The ONE card will be available for sale starting Tuesday (December 4 ) at all metro stations and DTC pass counters. The existing Metro smart cards will continue to stay valid but any new card or replacement will be through ONE card, an official said.
