CHENNAI, INDIA (Metro Rail News): After the lockdown, the metro trains were run with 50 per cent occupancy and now with 100 per cent occupancy. Still, at both times, people do not want to travel in the metro due to fear and other reasons, but now the ratio is increasing, especially on weekdays.

According to the Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) report, on weekdays, ridership has increased up to 6 lakhs in just one month.

“While a total of 18.4 lakhs commuters took the trains in July, the ridership touched 22.4 lakhs in August 2021. On 27th August 2021, there are approximately 90,000 commuters travel in the metro. After schools and colleges reopening, maybe it will boost ridership”.

CMRL has fined 242 commuters in August 2021 for not wearing masks and has collected approx. Rs. 50,000 from them. We will sharpen the security, and commuters also have to cooperate with us, said CMRL officials. The Central Metro station received the highest vestige with nearly 7,000 commuters, followed by the High Court Metro station, 4,000.
