Most Chennai Metro commuters prefer share autos to share cars for their last-mile connectivity needs.
According to officials of Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL), while 2,634 people have used share car services, 16,163 have taken share autos from Chennai Metro stations between 11 August and 31 August.
To help people with last-mile connectivity and facilitate travel from stations to their respective destinations, CMRL on 11 August launched share auto services at Guindy, Thirumangalam, Alandur, Little Mount, Ekkatuthangal, Koyambedu, St. Thomas Mount and Ashok Nagar stations and share car services at AG-DMS, Anna
Nagar East, Koyambedu, Alandur and Vadapalani.
These services cover a radius of 3 km around a station. Passengers who use share auto and share car service have to pay a flat tariff of ₹10 and ₹15, respectively.
“We are unable to understand why many are not using share car services. It’s very cheap and yet there aren’t many takers,” an official said.
Among the five stations where share car services are available, AG-DMS station saw the maximum number of 828 people availing of the service, while Vadapalani saw a meagre 145 users.
Similarly, in eight stations that have share auto services, Guindy had the maximum of 3,806 people using this facility while Ashok Nagar had the lowest, with just 245 people travelling by share auto from the station.
Officials said Guindy and AG-DMS stations have many office-goers using the share auto and share car facilities to their offices.
But they were unable to state why many commuters had not taken to these services in other stations.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    @all: The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info.

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
