A IIIT-Delhi team has launched a project to get platforms such as Paytm and Google Pay to sell public bus tickets in the city and design all electric vehicle charging stations in mobile apps.
The project also aims to make transit data of all Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) buses available to companies as they develop applications to help passengers plan their journey better.
The initiative is being supported by the Delhi Knowledge Development Foundation, a Delhi government body. So far, an allocation of Rs 6.1 crore has been made for this purpose, Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot said on Monday.
To this end, the government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with IIIT-Delhi to set up a Center for Sustainable Mobility, which will be headed by Professor Pravesh Biyan, who is a faculty member at the institute.
“In the near future, scaling up contactless tickets, mapping electronic charging stations and making DTC transit data available will be our priority. We will strive to ensure that at least 10 percent of all public bus ticket transactions are non-contact within the next three months. “All of these things will be available in the One Delhi app being developed by the central government,” Biyani told The Indian Express.
Currently, electronic tickets for Delhi public buses are only available in an application called ‘Chartr’ developed by IIIT-Delhi. Biyani said an API developed for this purpose would be made public to other electronic payment portals to make bus tickets available.
API is an interface which allows software to share information through networks such as the Internet. For example, if someone wants to build an application that has Google Maps integrated, they can request the mapping service from Google using its APIs.
If the plan works, apps like Paytm, GooglePay will be able to add a feature to pay for bus tickets on their platforms along with route number, origin, destination, fare.
There are currently about 6,600 public buses in the capital, despite the Supreme Court requesting 11,000 buses.
