Noida: The officials of Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) are working to create the last-mile connectivity for its under-construction 29-km Noida-Greater Noida Metro. Managing Director Santosh Yadav said they were working on developing a support system within 1.5 km of stations to provide connectivity to Metro commuters.
Speaking to Media, Yadav said though the Metro provides a safe, efficient and comfortable journey, the trouble begins once you step out of the stations. “Not much thought has gone behind providing an equally dependable support system that would help commuters reach the Metro station from their homes and offices and vice versa,” he said.
“NMRC has decided to address the issue. We have formed a team to study a 1.5 km area in the vicinity of all 21 stations. Once we have the report in the next 4-5 months, we will get the authorities to develop facilities. We promise to change the way people travel so that Metro stations are easily accessible from homes, hospitals, institutes and shopping centres,” he said.
