JMRC to Link Metro Services to App-Based Autos and Buses to Increase Ridership


JMRC, the Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation is to run a pilot project by linking its metro services to app-based autos and eight-seater buses. JMRC is in process of acquiring a stage carriage permit for these new feeder services. They aim to increase the metro ridership by providing pick up services to passengers to and from the metro stations.

Some important stats

A survey conducted earlier shows the 50% of the passengers using Metro have to walk for one or two kilometres to reach the metro stations. 15% of passengers use mini buses to reach the stations while 11% use their two-wheeler, 8% use auto-rickshaws and 5% use low floor buses.

So, now the new feeder service, which is to be launched by the JMRC will make it easier for commuters to use the metro services as they will now be able to travel to and from the metro stations by paying less. The app-based autos and eight seater buses that are to be linked to metro will run on fixed dedicated routes and will have a Jaipur Metro sticker on them.

Benefits of the new feeder service

With the new feeder service, the passengers using metro will have an assured seat in a bus or auto when they walk out of the metro station. This will not only reduce the time passengers spend waiting for an auto or bus, but will also improve connectivity. This service will add to the convenience of passengers and enhance the safety of women passengers. Also, this service is likely to attract the elite sector of the society to use Jaipur Metro.

Pilot Project from Sindhi Camp bus stand and Chandpol stations

As a pilot project, JMRC is all set to start the operation of these eight seater buses from Sindhi Camp bus stand and Chandpol stations. Whereas autos linked to the Jaipur Metro services will be available at all nine stations situated on this metro route.
