Banglalink Mobile Financial Service (MFS)

train ticket

banglalink has launched mobile train ticket service in joint collaboration with cns limited and bangladesh railway.

through this service, railway passengers now will be able to purchase their train ticket from their own banglalink mobile phone as well as from approximately 1500 “banglalink mobile cash points” located at Dhaka, Chittagong, Rajshahi and Sylhet. railway passengers now don’t have to rush to the stations and wait in the long queue for purchasing their train tickets.

once the ticket is purchased either from own mobile or through the banglalink mobile cash points, passengers will receive an e-ticket with e-ticket number in their mobile phone as reply sms. passengers can go to source/starting station just an hour before the journey time and take printed ticket by mentioning the e-ticket number and his/her mobile number (which was used for mobile ticketing).

the service will add value to the bangladesh railway passengers in purchasing the train tickets with increased reach, reduced costs, convenience and speed.
