Kolkata Metro to increase the number of e-passes for passengers’ benefit
First Published 18, Sep 2020, 5:22 PM
After the Kolkata Metro service was resumed, the number of passengers has been declining for the last few days. The less availability of e-passes had led to a smaller number of passengers using Metro services. Many people still do not have a clear idea of the process of booking the e-passes. Therefore, this time, Kolkata Metro has decided to increase the number of e-passes.
Although the Kolkata Metro service was resumed, the number of passengers has been declining for the last few days. One of the reasons was the low number of e-passes. Many passengers left the metro station as they did not agree to wait and book the e-passes again.
There are also reasons for the low number of passengers due to the difficulty in understanding the process of booking e-passes. However, this time, Kolkata Metro is returning to its glory by increasing the number of e-passes.
This time, the Kolkata Circular Railway will also gain importance in the transport system. When the local trains services will be resumed, the Kolkata Circular Railway will be an alternative to handle the crowds.
According to railway sources, the number of local trains may also be increased to reduce the huge crowd in Sealdah and Bidhannagar stations.
The railway authorities have already discussed this issue. Most of the passengers will get the benefit if the Kolkata Circular Railway resumes again. The passengers will not have to go via Sealdah to reach Boro Bazaar.
