Kochi Metro Releases New Passes and Discounts for Festival Season

Date:

Kerala, India–Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) announced the introduction of new passes and subsidized rates effective October 24.

The government agency responsible for the operations of the metro system in India’s southwestern coastal city of Kochi, or Cochin (the KMRL), will now offer three new types of unlimited travel tickets:

  • Three days – ₹280 ($3.4)
  • Fifteen days – ₹1,150 ($13.9)
  • Forty-five days – ₹3,250 ($39.3)

The KMRL, in light of the festive season of Deepawali, or Diwali, is offering “rationalized” rates of existing passes. They are mentioned on the website as follows:

  • Single-day pass (students) – ₹50 ($0.6)
  • Single-day pass – ₹125 ($1.5)
  • Weekend pass – ₹230 ($2.8)
  • Seven-day pass (students) – ₹550 ($6.7)
  • Thirty-day pass – ₹900 ($10.9)
  • Thirty-day – ₹2,200 ($26.7)

According to a report, the previous pricing for student passes was criticized for being unaffordable for students, with more than 60% of the sample confirming the case in a survey conducted at a local college.
