‘One Goa One Card’ launch by KTC tieup with Paytm & RuPay Transit Card:

Glad to share glimpse of our recent card launch in the presence of GOA Transport minister – “ONE GOA, ONE CARD.”- One card for all your payments! It’s another step to provide GOA citizens and visitors a sense of comfort and ease while making everyday payments. Ab GOA aur bhi chill smile

Soon, the national common mobility card (NCMC) for transportation will be a reality in Goa. The ‘One Goa One Card’ with automated fare collection system is scheduled to be launched on December 21, and will be introduced by the Kadamba Transport Corporation Limited (KTC) by linking it with the payment gateway, PayTM. The launch will pave a way for the usage of a cashless card system in buses run in the state by KTC.

Android ticketing machines will also be handed to all KTC conductors to carry out the ticketing process.

Aimed at letting passengers pay across different public transport platforms using one card, the technology is likely to be adopted by other transport service providers in the state as well.

“Digital transactions will be made easy with the help of this system with or without internet connectivity. While we will be using it for bus ticketing services, as soon as it becomes popular, users will be able to use the card for other services such as pay parking, purchase of groceries, etc,” KTC general manager Sanjay Ghate said.

“We intend to have 100% digital revenue collection and this will ensure efficient fare collection in the transport system. This one-of-a-kind technology can also be adopted by rickshaws, pilots and other public transport service providers in Goa,” he added.

Launched by the central government a year ago, the service enables passengers from any part of the country to use their NCMC-compliant RuPay debit card for seamless travel. The same card can also be used for shopping and banking transactions across the country.
