The Delhi Transport Department on Thursday wrote to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), Delhi transport Corporation (DTC) and Delhi Integrated Multi-Modal Transit System (DIMTS) — responsible for operation of cluster buses in Delhi — to take steps for making the Yatri More card operable on DTC and cluster buses.
The Yatri More card would thus become a common mobility card enabling seamless travel between modes of public transport.
“The DTC will procure electronic ticketing machines, while the DMRC will make changes in the smart card so that it can be used on DTC and cluster buses and other modes of public transport,’’ an official said.

The move comes almost two years after the DMRC launched the common mobility card for seamless travel on Metro trains and on certain DMRC-run feeder buses.
The Transport department is working out the modalities after the proposal received Lt-Governor Najeeb Jung’s nod.
Eventually, the plan is to ensure that people are able to use any mode of transport in Delhi, including auto-rickshaws and taxis, and pay using the smart card.
A senior Transport department official said the common mobility card would initially be recharged at DMRC’s automated fare recharge booths inside Metro stations.
“But eventually, a system will be put in place that will allow people to recharge the cards in other utility stores based on their bar codes,” he said.
