The public transport system is regulating on its usual time table from 6 AM to 10 PM from in the city.
The nationwide Unlock 4 paved way for the Lucknow Metro to relaunch its operations. The public transport system is regulating on its usual time table from 6 AM to 10 PM from in the city. With stringent social norms at the station and precautionary measures in the carriage units, the special transport vehicle is ferrying its local crowd with paramount safety, efficiency and ease. Apart from that, the administration has also extended the 'Stay in limit' inside the metro station premises from 90 to 120 minutes, September 11 onwards. This will definitely help in maximising the safety of the travellers.
Lucknow Metro resumed operations on September 7 after being shut for 5 months. However, with its resumption, the Metro Administration has increased the passenger 'Stay in Limit' to 120 minutes and time limit for exiting source station to 20 minutes. This extended stay has been imposed as a precautionary measure to prevent over-crowding of entry and exit points of the station as well as inside the metro carriages; the numbers of commuters have been on a steady rise since the resumption of services. An average of 10,000 passengers use the metro as a means of daily transport and to impose the state authorised SOP and norms of social distancing, the 'Stay in Limit' will be witnessing a stretched time limit from September 11 onwards.
With these protocols in place, Lucknow Metro is all set to emerge as a safe and convenient means of transport for its people, at a stupendous speed; covering its entire route from CCS Airport to Munshipulia in a record time of 40 minutes! With almost all units back on track, the schedule stands unchanged and the efficiency remains unbeatable.
By prioritising passenger safety and convenience, the UPMRCL has yet again proved that the Lucknow Metro is a public transport system for its people. This extended Stay in Limit, yet again coincides with the Lucknow Metro's motive of making every passenger's metro journey easy and memorable. So, dear Lucknowites, it is time to say goodbye to the peak-hour road traffic and greet the comfort, convenience, safety, speed and the overall magnificence of the Lucknow Metro's primely sanitised and monitored transport services.
