QR code information

The K-R code will be affixed in two places on the inside of the bus as well as on the outside of the bus. Passengers will also get information about the starting point of the bus, the last stop, and all the bus stops on that route after scanning the QR code using the scanner on their mobile. It will also include the toll number of the PMP. Earlier, PMP’s bus had only route numbers. But, new passengers were not getting information about the stops. Now color coding and QR code will be used for this, informed Jagtap.

The 2017 routes in the city have been given 15 colors namely red, black, blue, purple, green, pigeon, pink, parrot, brown, sky, yellow, algae, gray, khaki, peacock, orange, crimson. Stickers of those colors will be affixed on the bus. Jagtap said that some students of design courses, Yogesh Riswadkar of Edge Creations for logos, “Sustainability Initiative” for maps have collaborated.

Local maps

Each of the PMP buses will have information boards on the lines of locals, first stop, last stop, total bus stops, etc. This work will be completed in a month. This will give passengers information about stops. The PMP Care app will also have information on color code routes, maps, etc. This will make it easier for passengers to travel, said Kerure, PMP’s co-manager.
