Feb 13, 2018: Now, you don’t have to stand in a queue to buy unreserved tickets.  South Western Railway (SWR) has released an app on which one can buy them.

The ‘UTS’ app allows a passenger to book four tickets from the nearest station within five kilometres of their position. Passengers can also cancel tickets, get/renew season tickets and buy platform tickets through the app.

For registration, the app demands information including name and address, frequently travelling routes and payment options. A user will get a login ID and password for an electronic wallet which needs to be recharged before the booking.

“Once a ticket is booked on the app, passengers can go to the automatic ticket vending machine at the origin station and take a printout of the ticket by providing the mobile number and booking ID. The journey should commence within three hours of the booking,” Bengaluru Divisional Railway Manager R S Saxena said.

However, those booking tickets via the app at small stations, where there are no vending machines, should ensure that their destination stations come under SWR.
