UBL Omni has achieved a milestone of PKR 1 Billion in collections for Pakistan Railways under the country’s first-ever e-ticketing facility. UBL Omni initiated this project by providing e-ticketing facilities to Pakistan Railways customers for 3 trains, in August 2016. Today this e-ticketing service is available for online reservation and payments for 49 trains across Pakistan.

Customers from all over Pakistan can pay against their reserved tickets through digital payment modes i.e. online payment through any Debit/Credit Card, UBL Omni Wallets and UBL Omni Dukaans. Upon successful completion of the transaction, Pakistan Railways sends a confirmatory SMS to the passengers, in which the ticket, coach, seat and CNIC numbers of the passenger along with date and time of the train are mentioned. This SMS can be treated as a ticket.
UBL Omni is now developing an e-ticket payments system through the UBL Omni application. This will be a one window solution, where customers will log in and are able to make reservations and payments to Pakistan railways without leaving the UBL Omni App.
