Hyderabad: To solve the problem of overcrowded trains, Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) decided to reduce the train frequency to less than three minutes during peak hours.

Responding to the tweet shared by Twitterati, HMRL Managing Director NVS Reddy wrote, ‘We have asked L&T top management to buy more trains but it is a timing exercise. As an interim relief, train frequency is being reduced to 3 minutes during peak hours and short loop services have been introduced.’

After watching a video of a crowded Ameerpet metro station, he wrote, ‘Platform length is also being extended at Ameerpet’.

About 4.5 lakh commuters of Hyderabad rely on Metro Rail.

About 4.5 lakh commuters of Hyderabad travel using Metro Rail every day. However, this is only half the capacity.

Although occupancy does not reach maximum levels, some routes are very crowded at certain times.

Some are of the opinion that increasing the number of coaches from the current three to six can solve the problem of overcrowding in trains and overcrowding at stations.

The old city is still waiting for the metro rail.

Metro Rail commenced its operations in Hyderabad on 29th November 2017, and since then HMRL has been continuously innovating to improve the passenger experience.

Despite the recent technical glitches that affected the metro service, it is considered one of the most preferred modes of transportation in Hyderabad.

However, metro rail has not been made available in the old city so far.

Despite several representations by political leaders, including AIMIM MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi, the metro rail has not yet been extended to the old city.
