Metro registers record ridership on Saturday

 Namma Metro ridership touched a record ridership of 3.39 lakh on Saturday, indicating more number of people will board the trains in the coming days.

The record was set on a day when Metro authorities decided to reduce the frequency and cut the hours of operation for second Saturdays, Sundays and general holidays.

On the first Sunday, when Metro operated from 8 am instead of 5 am, the patronage did not go down. By 10 pm, Namma Metro had clocked a ridership of 2.96 lakh with many complaining on Twitter overcrowded trains due to reduced frequency.

With at least one more hour of operation left, it was obvious that the total number of riders would cross the 3-lakh mark.
