WhatsApp to soon provide an option to book metro tickets

Along with Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation, WhatsApp has announced a new Namma Metro chatbot on Monday. The new feature will allow commuters to book tickets with the help of the QR-based ticketing service chatbot on WhatsApp. Users can buy tickets on WhatsApp and make payments using the UOI services integrated into the app. 

The chatbot is also used to recharge the metro cards. Bengaluru is the first city ever to get this opportunity. This will not only save a lot of time for consumers, but the chaos outside the ticketing counter can also be avoided if people use WhatsApp to book tickets.
