​Kanpur Metro inaugurated: Know all about fares and features here

Citizens can avail the metro services from 6 AM to 10 PM, every day!

Public transportation in Kanpur is set to get a boost with the newly inaugurated Kanpur Metro services. The overhead 'red line' corridor has been officially named the Priority Corridor and was inaugurated by PM Modi today. Reportedly, the first commercial service of the Kanpur Metro will run between IIT Kanpur and Motijheel Metro Stations on December 29, 2021. Citizens can avail the metro services from 6 AM to 10 PM, every day.

Kanpur Metro to have QR code-based ticketing system

Tracking a major step towards digitisation, Kanpur Metro will initially use a modern QR-code based ticketing system, instead of the usual token vending machines. These will be generated automatically at the time of ticketing on the traveller's smartphone. For those who do not own a smartphone, a slip with a QR code will be handed to the travellers, for authentication at entry and exit points.

Just like tokens, one QR code will be valid for one person and one journey only. Since the system generates a unique code every time, no QR code can be used twice by any commuter. People can also travel in the metro train by using Smart Cards, added reports. Token vending machines will be installed later, on the basis of the footfall witnessed at respective stations.

Economic metro fares for the benefit of all!

The Kanpur Metro is being introduced as an economic model of public transport in the city. All fares and ticketing charges, as such, have been regulated and fixed to ensure that the travel is affordable for all, especially daily commuters. The highest ticket fare is marked at ₹30, levied on those travelling from IIT Kanpur (first stop) to LLR Hospital and Motijheel Metro Stations (last two stops) on this elevated 'Red Line'.

Equivalently, the lowest ticket price has been fixed at ₹10, for those travelling from IIT Kanpur Metro Station to the next stop, SPM Hospital Metro Station. Passengers have to shell out ₹15 only for commuting until ASPM Hospital form the first stop. The ticket fare of the next four stations, namely CSJM University, Gurudev Chauraha, Geeta Nagar and Rawatpur Railway Station has been marked at ₹20. The ride is only free for children who are 3 feet in height or shorter.

Safer & smarter Kanpur Metro:

From demographics to geographics and beyond, Kanpur is growing rapidly and the convenience of metro at the threshold of this transition is a major leap forward for the city dwellers. The Kanpur Metro project fulfils the city's dire need for an upgraded and smart means of public transport - backed by a lifestyle change, added reports.

The scheme will resolve the issues of lack of parking spaces and even air pollution, in Kanpur. It will improve the face of road traffic in Kanpur, decongesting prominent areas for an easier commute for all. The corridor is expected to scale exponentially, with upcoming phases on cards, opening state-of-the-art travel and transport systems for around 65.8 lakh persons by 2041.

Metro corridors, stations and rakes on the Priority corridor will be sanitised regularly, pegging the model commute system to be a boon for the city dwellers, especially amidst the pandemic hour. The entire stretch has been designed in accordance with the green building codes, which makes it safe for the environment.
