Soon metro commuters using smart cards will not have to stand in queues for recharging their cards. The Kolkata Metro Railway is mulling over a scheme to introduce online smart card recharge system by the end of this year for a faster commute.
Once the facility is in place, commuters using smart cards will be able to recharge them online by visiting the website of the Kolkata Metro Railway. The website will feature a link that will direct the users to the page and enable recharge using virtual wallets or debit and credit cards. Once done, the new balance on the card will be saved in the database of metro railways.
Commuters will later be able to update and check their balance at the card balance checking terminals (CBCT) installed at various metro stations. Read more
