Chennai: The Chennai Metro Rail plans to provide real-time information of train services on its mobile app in 3 months. This will greatly help commuters in planning their travel, according to officials of Chennai Metro Rail Limited.
An official said,“At present, the app has information about the train schedule. But real-time information would work better in case of minor delays or changes. Also, this will make it very convenient for first-time travellers.”
Chennai Metro has trains every 10 minutes during peak hours & every 15 minutes during lean hours.
It was high time such facilities were introduced to help passengers, a source said.
He said,“Having a standard schedule alone won’t do; many commuters won’t know if this is accurate or not. Also, it will be convenient if a commuter at Koyambedu station knows where the train she is about to board is at.”
