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.”
