KOCHI, INDIA (Metro Rail News): The ridership in Kochi Metro is increasing day by day. The number of passengers has reached 54,504, and that’s why Kochi Metro Rail Ltd. has decided to increase the frequency of trains. The ridership was at its maximum on December 4 when it touched 50,000. As a result, KMRL has decided to reduce the timings between services on Sundays, Mondays and Saturdays.
