We sent the belowsaid petition on 15th Feb 2017 vide GOVTN/E/2017/00404 to Government of Tamil Nadu.

Dear Team,

We would suggest if MTC could introduce the following services to make payments at counters for monthly pass etc.

  1. PayTM
  2. Credit or Debit Cards
  3. FreeCharge

Currently the counters accept only cash and at times when the teller runs out of change there is a heated argument prevailing at the counters between the staff and commuters.

With non-cash plastic currency alternatives these things can be avoided and performance is improved at the counters.

The response from transport corporation on 27th April 2017 is as below.

At present MTC is issuing monthly bus passes in and arround Chennai for the benefit of regular passenger. These season tickets are issuing from 1st to 22nd of every month including Saturday, Sunday and all Government Holidays. Your suggestion regarding issue the monthly season ticket through Debit cards and through network providers are taken note in MTC. Lr.No.29/22379/SCF Pass/MTC/2017. Dated.12.04.2017.
