Abstract: Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) is a prominent public transport service provider in Bengaluru. It makes commuting favourable and cheap compared to other modes of transport within the city. The organization enhances its services by analyzing passenger demands and providing them the necessary services. BMTC working model is coagulating with information technology in terms of ITS (Intelligent Transport System- Global Positioning System [GPS] enabled buses, electronic ticketing machine [ETM]). In spite of these advancements, it charges its service fares through paper tickets and passes which need to be purchased by paying cash. In the Digital era, technological solutions pave the way for digitizing mechanisms for traditional methods or problems and synchronizing information in real-time. These paper pass which proves to be beneficiary for passengers are being misused by means of transferring, reusing the day pass when there is lack of inspection. We have designed a solution to overcome misuse and also to encourage digital transaction for a cashless economy. The solution is mobile application electronic pass (e-pass).
