LUCKNOW (Metro Rail News): Last week, two firms submitted proposals to re-engineer the Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) system for Lucknow Metro Phase 1 from a closed-loop to an open-loop system (Package LKS-04).

When Line-1’s initial 8.5 km section connecting Transport Nagar and Charbagh opened in September 2017, the original AFC system installed by Datamatics & Mikroelektronika was installed and inaugurated.
