Paytm now accepted at unreserved bus counters

New Delhi, Nov 2 (IANS) Mobile payment and e-commerce platform Paytm on Wednesday announced that users can now pay with their Paytm wallets at unreserved bus ticket counters.

Currently bus counters operated by state transport undertakings (STUs) in Uttarakhand and Rajasthan accept Paytm.

“With this use case, Paytm has achieved a breakthrough in bringing digital payments to the unreserved bus ticketing sector,” said Kiran Vasireddy, Vice President, Paytm, in a statement.
