Two bodies of the Tamil Nadu government, MTC and Chennai Metro Rail Ltd (CMRL), have started work on a common ticketing system for both their utilities in Chennai. However, the operator running suburban trains, the second biggest public transport mode in the city and its suburbs, Southern Railway is nowhere in the picture.
After Chennai Metro, upcoming Mumbai Metro corridors will also have separate first class compartments where commuters will be able to book seats in advance. Apart from this, Metro coaches and stations will also have Wi-Fi connectivity along with USB charging points inside the trains.
Chennai Metro Rail will soon provide a helping hand to those wanting to get to Chennai airport from southern Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu after landing in the metropolitan city by train.
