The Metro Company has also decided on two tag lines for the route. On Wednesday, Santosh Yadav, Managing Director, NMRC invited suggestions for safety and security guidelines from all stakeholders for the under-construction Metro corridor. Speaking to TOI, Yadav said that Noida-Greater Noida track will be known as the 'aqua line'. "We have also finalized the design of the coach and its interiors," he said. "Aqua signifies an eco-friendly colour, which is what we want to portray," he said. "Metro systems worldwide must comply with colour codification norms.

has the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation's (DMRC) blue line connecting to its network. In January next year the Kalindi Kunj-Botanic Garden track will also connect to DMRC's magenta line. With the Noida-Greater Noida track in place, Noida will have three colour coded lines-Blue line, Magenta line and Aqua line-operating out of the city.
Yadav further said that two tag lines have been finalized for the Noida-Greater Noida Metro. "Ride with Pride and 'Noida Metro, Apni Metro' are the two tag lines, which will be used by us," he said. "We have also decided on a name for the 'one city, one card' smart card. This card will be called 'acome'," he told TOI. "This card will enable a Metro passenger to get a smart card that can be used for the metro ride, city bus service, cinema, shopping at stations and for paying parking charges. With this card, a passenger will not need cash to avail these services," he explained. As per Yadav, the Noida-Greater Noida corridor will signify a world-class Metro which has been designed with environment sustainable development features. "Rain-water harvesting, zero discharge, minimum water consumption, electricity conservation, use of solar power are some of the green initiatives we have adopted for the Noida-Greater Noida Metro," he added. NMRC has also sought suggestions from general public as to what should be the guidelines to be followed by passengers to make the journey comfortable and safe. "Dos and don'ts are being put into place for Metro riders. A draft of the norms to be followed has been prepared but we want the public to get involved, hence invite suggestions," said Yadav. Those, who want to give suggestions, can send at to NMRC office in Ganga Shopping complex in Noida sector 29. According to the proposed draft, carrying hazardous and objectionable material in Noida-Greater Noida Metro will invite a penalty of Rs 5000 or 4 years imprisonment. Advertising inside Noida Metro without requisite permission will invite 6 months' imprisonment or Rs 1000 fine, said officials.
