After triumphantly leading Aabhar (Thanks-Giving) Rides for two consecutive days for Nagpurians, Maha Metro is all set and started Ticketing Operations from March 10. The response to not just the Aabhar Rides, but also to the fact that Nagpurians fully grasped all the stabilized norms implied by Maha Metro to launch Ticketing Service.
Nagpurians manifested excellent discipline and stood in queues for both buying the tickets or even getting into the platform, also prompted Maha Metro to start Ticketing Services. So, the passengers would now have to buy tickets before lodging the Train from Metro Stations run between Khapri and Sitabuldi Interchange Station.
The Fare structure and the reduced fare for the first month for the extent between Khapri Metro Station and Sitabuldi Interchange Station have already been proclaimed by Maha Metro earlier. As per the Offer fare, the amount to be paid for a journey between Khapri Metro Station and Sitabuldi Interchange Statio would be Rs 20. Likewise, the charge between Khapri to Airport Station and Airport to Sitabuldi Interchange has been fixed at Rs 10.
The sales operation would start from Sitabuldi Interchange Station beginning at 8 am.
The trips have been slotted for 8 am, 9.30 and 11 am in the pre-noon session and at 3.30 pm, 5 pm and 6.30 pm in the next half of the day.
The travelers would have to buy tickets from ticket counters at all the five stations of Khapri, New Airport, Airport South, Airport and Sitabuldi Interchange Station.
Every traveler will have to pass the process of the scanning QR code at the Automatic Fare Collection (AFC). The passengers would have to scan the ticket at the AFC gate to proceed ahead towards the platform. Most importantly, the passengers would have to pay the exact charge for the journey they wish to undertake. If the fare is less than the trip undertaken, the passengers would have to pay the difference.
Metro had planned Aabhar (Thanks-Giving) Ride the day after the Metro was given to the public four days back. For two full days, hundreds of Nagpurians took full benefit of the Journeys and the number of those who availed the same surpassed 20,000. The great response given by the citizens hinted Maha Metro to start commercial operations.
With the launch of ticketing operations, Maha Metro has filled its promise of starting full-fledged commuter services for the citizens of Nagpur. Maha Metro pushes Nagpurians to take full benefit of the services
