NMRC is planning to identify pick up and drop points for e-rickshaws and will built prepaid booking kiosk for app-based taxis like Ola and Uber at the Aqua Line stations.
P D Upadhyay, executive director at NMRC, said “tenders for cab kiosk will be issued soon, similar to what we see in airports, if there is a facilitation booth at the metro station, those who prefer cabs and e-rickshaws over feeder bus services will be at ease”.
“We are working on a time limit when these cabs could be allowed to stand outside the metro stations because cabs were anyway queue up outside metro stations irrespective of a dedicated facility or not. The matter was discussed with the traffic police in a recent meeting”, he added.
This facility will help to ease the congestion around the metro stations if properly implemented.
