Jacob is a passenger who wants to travel from Wellawatte to Bambalapititya. He uses smart card as digital token to do payment to confirm destination route. Smart card has account linked with public transport provider.
I am waiting for the bus.Now there are no bus conductors to take tickets. We have to use smart card to do payment to confirm a route
Jacob gives the card to ticket inspector so he scan the card with the digital reader
Ok sir I will give you my smart card
I need your smart card in order to confirm destination route
Digital reader is like a ipad.It scans card to validate whether it is expired or fake.
Digital reader checks whether there is sufficient credit from Jacobs's account to confirm payment.If there is sufficient credit a ticket receipt file will be sent through the SMS or email. Further a signal is sent to open the door
I am waiting for other passengers. There are more than one ticket inspectors who will be in charge to confirm passenger payments.
Since payment is confirmed. The door opens and Jacob goes inside. Ticket inspector informs the bus would leave after 10 minutes
Those who have invalid cards are going to be fined. We will not allow passengers to enter bus for those who have not confirmed payment.
I am going to see the ticket receipt I received through email.
Receipt contains depature time,arrival time,duration of travel and price of ticket
