New Delhi: Very soon, Delhi Metro commuters
can use their `Smart Cards` for travel in DTC and cluster bus
services in the city that would eventually be integrated with
the national common mobility card.

The step would help commuters use all kinds of transport
in the city with one single card and make payments through
that.

To facilitate its implement, a series of high-level
meetings have taken place at the level of Union Urban
Development Secretary and Principal Secretary of the Delhi
Government`s Transport Department.

Urban Development Secretary Sudhir Krishna told reporters
on Tuesday that the `More` cards will be introduced initially in
the cluster buses and later in buses run by the Delhi
Transport Corporation. He said the aim is to allow commuters to make all kinds
of payment through one card, but it would be done in a phased
manner.
