CMRL reported the average ridership of 2.6 lakh commuters

Chennai Metro Rail has recorded an average daily ridership of 2.6 lakh passengers over the past 10 days. On July 7, the service saw a particularly high ridership with 3.04 lakh passengers using the metro. CMRL officials attribute the increase in ridership to efforts made to improve last-mile connectivity, such as introducing mini-buses and electric autorickshaws at select stations.

These initiatives have attracted more commuters to choose the metro as a convenient mode of transportation. The consistent ridership numbers indicate the growing popularity and usage of the Chennai Metro Rail among the city’s residents.
