Your Metro Smart Cards Will Get You A 20% Discount, Easing The Sting Of Hiked Fares!
The ever-increasing Delhi Metro fares are taking a major toll on the city and its travellers, and thus here it is, a way to make sure that your travel is still slightly on the cheaper end. The usage of a Metro Smart Card will provide you with certain discounts as compared to getting tokens every time you travel and we’re going to tell you how!
Delhi Metro just increased fares across all its routes except the Airport Line beyond five kilometres by Rs 10, a hike which comes just five months after the previous one. But in return, DMRC has reduced the fares on the use of smart cards!
Here’s The Deal | Those carrying a smart card and travelling during the off-peak hours - between 6 AM to 8 AM, 12 PM to 5 PM and 9 PM onwards will be able to avail a 20 per cent discount! NICE! There’s two things that the DMRC is aiming at here, firstly getting people to get the smart card which will reduce the endless line for tokens and secondly, get people to travel in off-peak hours in order to reduce the crazy congestion on the metros!
Sounds good to us! Tell us your take in the comments below Dilli Walon!
