You may soon find a DTC employee at each bus stop issuing tickets to commuters, guiding them about bus routes and jotting down their complaints.
With the implementation of the automatic fare collection (AFC) system on each bus in the next couple of years, conductors will become redundant.
“We will deploy these conductors at each bus stops. They will not only keep a check if buses were maintaining the time table but will also issue paper tickets and smart cards to commuters and guide people on bus routes,” Delhi transport minister Arvinder Singh Lovely said on the sidelines of a two-day symposium on public transport and BRT jointly organised by the Delhi Integrated Multi-Modal Transit System and International Association of Public Transport.
