Hyderabad: The Hyderabad Metro Rail Ltd. (HMRL) would launch a mobile app, TSavaari, on the launch day of November 28, in which Prime Minister Neradra Modi , Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and top officials are expected to take part at Miyapur depot.
The mobile app would provide a comprehensive transport solution, with information on all modes of transport for a journey whether it is a TSRTC bus, MMTS train, metro trains and later even private carriers, said senior metro rail officials, requesting anonymity. Commuters downloading the app would get an update on the nearest TSRTC bus stops and efforts have been on to provide live information on the bus frequency. Apart from ticket tokens that can be purchased at counters at all the stations, a prepaid card of ₹200 would be made available for passengers.
But the common smart card ticket for buses, metro rail and even the MMTS trains would take many months from now.
The authorities of South Cenatral Railway (SCR) have clearly said there has been no discussion, till now, with either the State government or the metro rail officials on the integration of the services. Given this, there is no question of having a combined ticket for now.
“We have not been informehd of the metro rail services’ launch; so there is no change in our schedules as such,” said a senior railway official, unwilling to be quoted.
