Assam Launches ASTC Cab Services With UPI Payment Solutions In Guwahati

Assam State Transport Corporation (ASTC) proudly announced the commercial launch of ASTC City Cabs services. Now, one can easily book cab services in Guwahati and enjoy the benefits of this service. Moreover, it has also launched digital payment solutions through the Unified Payment Interface (UPI), like QR code scanning and payments in ASTC buses, stations, city cabs, etc., powered by PhonePe. This is a historic step to revolutionize urban transportation in Assam. 

Assam Launches ASTC Cab Services

The Hon’ble Minister of Transport, Shri Parimal Suklabaidya, unveiled this ground-breaking project in front of senior Transport Department officials. The decision to launch ASTC cab services is a major move in the right direction to improve affordability, convenience, and the general commuter experience.

As previously indicated, the addition of PhonePe to the ASTC’s ecosystem brings a multitude of digital payment choices that align with the government of India’s Digital India Initiative, hence augmenting commuters’ and consumers’ convenience. 

In addition, the ASTC City Cabs service has a fleet of spotless taxis that are easily reserved using a special smartphone application. Passengers can follow their rides in real-time, make easy payments, and leave insightful reviews with this user-friendly app, guaranteeing a smooth and consistent experience.

A Hassle-Free Service

In order to make the service completely hassle-free, they are moving forward with the commercial launch by integrating the APP with the PhonePe intent flow, which will allow drivers to pay their dues through any UPI of their choosing at the touch of a button and passengers to pay fares directly to drivers through any preferred UPI. 

This will greatly contribute to the development of a quicker digital payment settlement system. ASTC City Cabs is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed three months of providing mobility services to the public in the city of Guwahati.

During the launch, they were even more thrilled to notify everyone that ASTC City Cabs is now offering online taxi booking for all incoming passengers through the post-paid counter/kiosk at LGBI Airport (Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport). 

This will undoubtedly make it easier for travellers from other states who may not have the ASTC City Cab app to utilize these services. (As per India Today NE)

Through PhonePe’s safe and reliable environment, passengers may easily purchase bus tickets on buses, stations, city taxis, and other locations using their smartphones. Additionally, ASTC clients can easily pay their monthly dues by using PhonePe’s digital payment alternatives.

The launch of PhonePe digital payment solutions and ASTC City Cabs demonstrates ASTC’s unwavering commitment to improving the convenience of public transportation services in Assam. The company is constantly looking for new and creative ways to improve what it offers, and it uses state-of-the-art technology to make sure that its clients receive the best possible transportation experience.
