Metro One is making travel cheaper with its unlimited ride passes.
Mumbai Metro One Pvt Ltd (MMOPL) is a popular metro route, used by thousands on a daily basis. Though started with a few hiccups along the way, Mumbai Metro One, has today become a dependable mode of transportation in the city. Since it connects to major points of Mumbai- Andheri to Ghatkopar, the metro sees a daily ridership of nearly 5 lakh commuters.
Many of these commuters choose the metro as an ideal transportation for their daily grind which means, they end up spending a sizeable amount on the rides. To make commuting cheaper for those who have to travel on the same route daily, Mumbai Metro has come up with monthly unlimited ride passes.
What's the update?
Mumbai Metro One just launched its 'unlimited rides monthly passes' to make commute cheaper. The metro network already offers a '45 rides pass', where a rider has to pay for just 30 rides on a specific route and can take up to 45 rides on the same. The new passes will ensure that commuters get unlimited rides from their journey station to the destination, without having to buy the ticket or recharge their metro cards.
These passes are specifically designed for those who need to make frequent travels on the same route. Say, a rider who gets on at Andheri and gets off at Ghatkopar every single day would've had to pay for the rides daily but with the new unlimited pass, the rider can easily make as many rides as he/she wants and pay only for a portion of it.
Upgrade your '45 ride pass' to unlimited at just ₹25!
The monthly passes will be available for 4 routes that usually allowed the '45 ride pass' earlier; with an additional charge of just ₹25, commuters will be able to upgrade their pass into an unlimited one.
Which means, passengers travelling between Andheri and Saki Naka can pay ₹800 rather than ₹775, to avail unlimited rides along the route and henceforth for other routes as well. Ghatkopar to Marol Naka/Airport Road will also cost ₹800 rather than ₹775, Ghatkopar-Andheri will be ₹1,125 rather than ₹1,100 and Versova-Ghatkopar will cost ₹1,400 rather than ₹1,375.
According to a report by TOI, the 45 ride passes are being used by over 50,000 of the commuters, to make over 1 lakh rides. With the unlimited monthly pass, riders will now be able to make as many trips as they need, without having to think about the price or their frequency.
If you live in Mumbai, commuting is truly a battle and finding a way to avoid the usual traffic is a blessing in itself. If you get to save some cash while at the daily grind, it becomes much more lucrative. The unlimited monthly passes will allow riders to forget about the frequency of their trips or even the hassle of standing in queues and buying tickets.
