NFC (Near Field Communication) Technology has various applications such as Ticketing, Cashless payment, Identification, Time and attendance, Physical access etc. The most important and widely used application of NFC is ticketing. To use NFC applications it requires an inbuilt NFC in your smartphone. Till Today only high-end phones are NFC Enabled. This paper presents a Prototype for Local Train Ticketing using NFC for non-NFC Phones to increase the ubiquity. The system integrates NFC with GPRS to produce the ticket. Passengers can get the desired Ticket on their Phone by just showing the phone in front of the Reader at the station. Thus the created application can provide more ubiquity as passengers with low-End phones can also use NFC for ticketing.
