Patna Zoo gets Automated Ticketing System

Traveling to Patna Zoo has become easier ans smarter with new fully Automated Ticketing System becoming operational at Sanjay Gandhi Biological  Park in the heart of Patna.

There would be a total of  10 Automated Ticketing Points on two of its gates.

The Automated Ticketing System was inaugurated by Dy. CM Sushil Modi on the concluding day of Wildlife Week (Oct 2- Oct 9). The Entry Fee would remain unchanged to  Rs 15.

“Visitors’ cooperation is required as the authorities alone cannot maintain the automated gates,” Modi said.

He also launched a dedicated website of the Valmiki Tiger Reserve (VTR). He also welcomed people to visit the VTR where the ecotourism package is going to be started from November 1.

Valmiki Tiger Reserve director Santosh Tiwari said, “The package would include accommodation at guesthouses, eco-huts, jungle safari and elephant rides.”

The entry fee for the Valmiki Tiger Reserve  is Rs 50 per person and Rs 200 for each private vehicle. Tourists can check the website for availability of rooms at the lodge. There are eight eco-huts which could be booked in advance. According to the plan, tourists can take guidance of trained guards also.
