Bengaluru Metro Set Record: Over 7 Lakh Passengers In A Day


Bengaluru: Since the commencement of full train services on Bengaluru’s Namma Metro’s purple line, there has been a remarkable surge in the passenger number travelling daily using the metro. However, this new surge in the number of passengers turned out to be a momentous achievement last Wednesday when over, 7 lakh passengers used the metro to travel in a single day.

It is being said that the complete operationalization of the Namma Metro’s purple line has played a really big role in increasing the daily ridership of passengers through the metro.

Bengaluru Central Member of Parliament, PC Mohan was quoted in an ANI report, ‘Congratulations to Bangalore and the 7,01,455 passengers who chose our Metro on Wednesday, a resounding endorsement of our city’s unwavering commitment to sustainable urban mobility.’

The Purple Line metro extension service started between KR Pura (Krishnaraja Pura) to BYPL – (Byappanahalli). The line also connects the key residential area of Whitefield to the Central Business district of Bengaluru. It was built at a cost of Rs 363.48 crores.

Earlier, Bengaluru Central MP PC Mohan had said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had directed the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) to commence services on the new stretches of the Purple Line without postponing operations for a formal inauguration ceremony.
