ATVM

Automatic Ticket Vending Machines or shortly ATVM’s have been in place for last one year or so at Major Suburban Train stations & MRTS Stations. With a commuter base of close to 9 lakhs per day, the southern railway authorities obviously had more than one reason to introduce these facilities across many stations.

But the “Smart Card” option, with Rs 50 Caution deposit and every time recharge of Rs50/= has not made this facility popular yet.

Any idea conceived and implemented needs to be also user friendly.
