Mumbai Metro: A Ride of Happiness S.Vaikundarajan Views

Mumbai Metro
“Finally a sigh of relief for all the Mumbaikars” says S.Vaikundarajan on the inauguration of Mumbai Metro. Inaugurated by the Maharashtra Chief Minister, Prithviraj Chavan, Mumbai’s very first metro line was declared open at 10.16 am when Maharashtra Chief Minister took the first ride from Versova station to Ghatkopar. Unlike the regular Mumbai stations, the Metro stations are very different. On most of the station walls, ticket counters there are graffiti drawn that makes the station looks attractive.

Apart from the attractive and youthful stations and ticket counter, it is also technology and human friendly. When I say technology friendly, the use of smart cards and tokens reduces the tension of the commuters to stand in long lines to buy tickets and when I say human friendly, it can be connected with the number of people commuting in a metro compartment at a particular time. This way there will be limited number of travelers at a time at the same time giving them space to breath inside the compartment and not allowing any to climb on the roof-top. The Mumbai Metro has brought in a huge change in the lives of each and every Mumbai commuter.
