Rly ATVMs a hit among passengers

The automated ticket vending machines (ATVMs) installed a month ago in major railway stations under the Thiruvananthapuram division have become a huge hit among the passengers, says railways.

It was in December last week that 10 ATVMs were introduced in five stations –
Thiruvananthapuram, Kottayam, Eranakulam Junction, Aluva and Thrissur. As per the statistics, passengers bought 58,876 tickets using ATVM cards in January alone and 72,592 passengers travelled using those tickets.

The authorities are planning to introduce more ATVMs in other important stations to end the long queues for tickets. It is learnt that the more ATVMs and jansadharan ticket booking sevak (JTBS) counters and passenger reservation system (PRS) centres will be introduced in the state during the year.
