Kochi Metro Rail Ltd (KMRL) has decided to boost train frequency by operating extra trips in order to accommodate the growing number of commuters.
As a result, during peak hours, the headway of trains will be lowered from eight minutes to seven minutes and fifteen seconds. Trains will run every eight minutes during non-peak times rather than every eight minutes and thirty seconds. The new frequency will be in effect starting on Monday.
“Over the past few months, more people have been using the Kochi Metro. The daily average ridership in June was 82,024. KMRL is glad to note that more people are opting for Kochi Metro to meet their travel needs,” said a statement.
