UTS app to restarted today for local train ticket

The Mumbai local train mobile ticket application, Universal Ticket System (UTS), suspended during the pandemic, will start functioning from Wednesday. It will enable commuters to buy tickets directly on their mobile phone.

During the pandemic, the UTS app was suspended as there was no system of verification of the Covid-19 vaccination status of commuters. Now, the app will be reopened along with the verification facility.

According to Railway officials, the Railways and Government of Maharashtra have linked the state government's UTS Mobile App and Universal Pass System. Anyone who has received both doses of vaccine and 14 days has elapsed since the last jab can take the Universal Pass, which will be issued after due verification of vaccination status by the state government portal.

Commuters presently produce that Universal Pass at the counter to buy train tickets.

The state government portal that issues Universal Pass has now been linked to the Railway's UTS Mobile App. The fully vaccinated person can get a ticket directly on the mobile phone.

Anil Kumar Lahoti, General Manager, Central Railway, said this would enable passengers to get their tickets seamlessly.

"Through this app, both Journey and Season ticket can be issued and renewal of season ticket is also possible. The passengers needed to go to counters to buy tickets. The facility will be available on Android Google Play Store and Apple App Store from Wednesday," said an official.

Passengers who already have the UTS mobile app will have to update it to activate the new utility.

The Universal Pass portal and UTS mobile app were the Government of Maharashtra, CRIS, and Central Railway.
