Travel for free in the city tomorrow with your GoSmart cards
The North-South corridor of Lucknow Metro which was officially launched on 8th March 2019, will be completing a year of its journey. Though the metro rail system started with a rickety start and faced a few hurdles initially, it has been sailing smoothly ever since. With a boost in the daily ridership, the construction of new stations, as well as a new corridor, Lucknow Metro has become a reliable means of transportation for the people of this city.
As a token of gratitude for the support given by the people of Lucknow to the metro-rail system over the year, Lucknow Metro is giving away free rides to the daily commuters, on its first birthday!
