Nagpur : Maha Metro has proposed major discounted inaugural fares for the commuters of city and a ride from Sitabuldi Interchange to Khapri Metro Station will cost only Rs 20 as Metro Fare. The regular fare was fixed at Rs 34 for this 13-km distance, but it has been slashed substantially to woo more riders to enjoy Metro Ride.
Maha Metro Nagpur is all set to launch operations from Khapri Metro Station to Sitabuldi Interchange and from Lokmanya Nagar to Subhash Nagar Metro Station. The discount in the inaugural fares would be for the period of one month.
The discounted fare would prove to be all the more rewarding, as summer sets in and a cool Metro journey would give citizens the much needed relief from the scorching Sun and the rising temperatures. The journey with Metro Train would not just help fight the heat, but also ensure shorter journey time, according to Maha Metro officials.
Distance between Sitabuldi Interchange and Khapri Metro Station is 13 km for which barely Rs 20 will charged instead of regular fare of Rs 34. Similarly, short distance journey spanning upto 3 metro stations would be extremely cheap as the passenger will have to pay just Rs 10. The comparative fare for the similar distance as decided is Rs 23.
Maha Metro had launched Joy Ride services about a year back and close to 10,000 Nagpurians have enjoyed this fun ride in a span of six months and their experience was extremely fascinating. Maha Metro has planned this special discounted fare structure for initial days, after its formal launch. The Metro successfully conducted its trial run on Monday and is confident to run service smoothly for two stretches very soon.
