Mumbai Metro One is all set to resume its services
Mumbai Metro One is all set to resume its services. Metro officials take all measures to ensure safe and secure travel for commuters. After more than 6 months, services will finally resume on October 19. As a preventive measure against Covid-19, the temperature in subway rail cars will vary between 25 and 27 degrees. While the trains stop at smaller stations for 30 seconds, they stop for 180 seconds at large stations to ensure good ventilation. In addition, MMOPL will replace plastic tokens – the most preferred form of ticketing before the pandemic – with paper tickets.

The Maharashtra government had written a letter to the railways requesting that local train services be made available to all ladies from 11am to 3pm and again from 7pm until the end of the day’s local services, starting Saturday in Mumbai and MMR region. With reference to ‘COVID protocol’, the proposal was referred to the Railways Council. This caused confusion for women and many came to the stations on Saturday morning to check the situation.
