The introduction of automatic ticket vending machines (ATVMs) and UTS app by the Southern Railway to wean commuters off ticket counters has been effective. However, machines in some stations have become defective, inconveniencing commuters. To remedy this, the Chennai division is planning to install 130 ATVMs at railway stations falling under it, with 34 already installed in 19 stations. Office-goers and residents have started using the Meenambakkam railway station.
