It is looking at trebling the current figure of more than one lakh passengers a day.
L T Metro Rail Hyderabad (L TMRH), building and running the Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) project, is looking at trebling the current ridership of more than one lakh passengers a day which its trains are carrying in the inaugural stretch of Nagole-Ameerpet-Miyapur (30 km) launched in November last year.
It expects this to happen once operations commence between Ameerpet and L.B. Nagar (17 km) to complete Corridor One — L.B. Nagar to Miyapur (29 km) soon when there is expectation that the ridership will reach three lakh passengers a day. “We need more than three lakh passengers riding the trains everyday to put us in a better financial state,” say senior officials, pleading anonymity.
And, when Ameerpet-HiTec City (10 km) route gets ready in a few months’ time it will nearly complete Corridor Three of Nagole to HiTec City/Raidurg. Metro rail authorities are then expecting the ridership to rise to about 6.15 lakh passengers a day as 56 km of the targeted 66 km of project will be completed.Close
HYDERABAD: Patronage for the Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) crossed the 20 million mark, L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Ltd (LTMRHL)...
HYDERABAD: Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMRL) scaled a significant peak on Tuesday, by increasing its ridership to a whopping 2 crore. But, that doesn’t mean it’s catering to all sections of the society. A new study has indicated that the clientele of Metro is limited to the middle class due to high cost of tickets.
The End User Survey Impact of Metro Rail Services conducted by the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) has found that more than half of Metro’s clientele --62 per cent-- are people with income of over `2.5 lakh per annum. Only 23 per cent of commuters have income less than that. This, the study says, is the effect of the high prices of tickets; the cheapest ticket on Metro costs `10 and goes up to a maximum of `60. In comparison, the cost of tickets in TSRTC buses range between `5 and `30. “The Metro system may not be equitable as some passengers have felt that their travel costs have doubled since they made the shift from their regular modes of transport to the Metro,” says the study.Close
