Bengaluru’s Namma metro experiences a significant influx of commuters during the weekdays, as it is widely regarded as one of the most convenient modes of transportation within the city. In response to the high passenger demand, Namma Metro has decided to introduce extra train services on its Purple line. Passengers travelling between the Mahatma Gandhi Road station and the Nadaprabhu Kempegowda Majestic metro stations will benefit from these additional trains.
Notably, these supplementary trains on the Purple Line are being implemented as a trial initiative, and their success will determine whether a similar expansion will be extended to other metro lines. This announcement was made by the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL).
According to the BMRCL statement, commuters travelling between Nadaprabhu Kempegowda Station – Majestic and Mahatma Gandhi Road metro station can expect relief during the morning peak hours thanks to the introduction of these extra trains. These additional trains will be operational on weekdays, from Monday to Friday.
These services will have a termination point at the MG Road station. Passengers intending to continue their journey to Baiyappanahalli must transfer to another train at MG Road Station.
For commuters heading towards Baiyappanahalli, which lies beyond Mahatma Gandhi Road, they can disembark at Mahatma Gandhi Road metro station and switch to the other train. Bengaluru’s Namma metro authorities encourage passengers to utilise this new convenience.
