Assam Transport Minister Chandra Mohan Patowary launched the State Transport Corporation's Chalo app for Guwahati last night. The app will help commuters to know about the live arrival time of their bus so they can plan their travel accordingly.

People can also track the live GPS position of their bus on a map. It will also ensure safe travel with features such as Emergency SOS.

The project includes the introduction of electronic ticketing in State Transport buses with the latest generation of cutting-edge Electronic Ticket Issuing Machines which can accept all modes of payment, including cards, mobile payments, QR code payments and other forms of digital payments.

Mr Patowary also unveiled a one-of-a-kind transport map for the State Transport bus network in Guwahati that has been developed by Chalo. Speaking on this occasion, MD of the Corporation AP Tiwari said, the first phase will cover 250 city buses, and in a few months time, Assam will be the first state in the country to have a state-wide smart transport solution and common mobility card for its commuters.

Mr Tiwari also announced free travel for Divyangs, freedom fighters and meritorious students of the state in State Transport buses.
