Kochi: The Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) Managing Director Loknath Behera has said that the decision on reducing ticket rates on the Metro will be taken soon. The decision was made considering the public opinion sought in the survey conducted by KMRL.
Loknath Behra told that 77 percent of the people who took part in the survey wanted the ticket price to be reduced. A total of 11,199 people took part in the survey. Out of these, 63 per cent were non-Metro users and 37 per cent were Metro commuters.
Mentally challenged people will be allowed to travel for free in the Metro and only half the rate is enough for the one travelling with them.
Behera also said that the water metro will be launched in December.
Loknath Behra said that based on the survey, special concessions will be introduced after consulting with the senior KMRL officials.
