If booking a train ticket is one task, booking an auto and cab after the train journey is another task. While booking a train ticket is one task, booking an auto and cab after the train journey is another task. As soon as they get off the train, they jump on the drivers at the same time asking if they want an auto or a taxi. But South Central Railway took a crucial decision.
A new experiment has been launched at the Koiyambatur railway station in Tamil Nadu. WhatsApp in railway station has brought the facility of booking an auto through QR code. Coimbatore railway station is the busiest station in Tamil Nadu after Chennai railway station. The railway department is improving the infrastructure here.
As part of this, a modern air-conditioned room has already been opened for the accommodation of passengers. Now the facility of booking autos through WhatsApp and QR code has been provided.
However..Urk Cab company operating in Coimbatore got this contract. But through the “Urk Cabs” app. The railway department has made it possible to scan the QR code and book an auto through WhatsApp.
Passengers can also book an auto by sending a text message to 8094880980. The railway officials said that the journey can be acceptable to the driver and the passengers. Efforts are being made to implement this facility across the country.
