Hyderabad: In a bid to improve commuter’s experience, Hyderabad Metro will soon be offering trolley service akin to those available at airport. Riders will soon be able to travel hassle-free as they can pick up a trolley from metro station, carry to the railway station or bus depot.

With this service a metro commuter can pick a trolley, offload the luggage on it and reach railway or bus station. They can then leave the trolley at the platform itself after taking the luggage off it.

Managing director Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL), NVS Reddy shared that work on the remaining Corridor One that is the Ameerpet to LB Nagar stretch will be completed by end of July. In August this stretch will be made operational and open to public.

Reddy explaining the trolley service facility said that commuters will get airport like ambience at metro stations. Quoting an examples Reddy added that rider commuting from Miyapur or Kukatpally to Secunderabad railway station can just carry on their luggage in their trolley and afterwards leave the trolleys at the platform only.

This facility will first be started at metro stations that are closer to public transport hubs. The stations include Begumpet, Secunderabad, Nampally and Malakpet.

Reddy added that once these services are rolled out, it will be the first such facility to be made accessible at any Metro station in the country.

And it’s not just trolley services that metro station will offer; very soon commuters will be able to buy essential goods and groceries from Hyderabad Metro stations. The authorities are planning to start ‘hubs of activity’

Reddy shared that they are making every attempt to turn metro stations public friendly places. Like they have made good footpaths along the stations along and installed safety railing for easy commute.  There are street furniture is place along with greenery along the medians. As part of the plan 20% of the concourse area will be used for shops wherein commuters can shop essential items and groceries. The idea is to improve commuter’s experience when they travel in Hyderabad Metro.
