MUMBAI: RInfra promoted Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL) has introduced an off-peak-hour fare of Rs 5 on the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar corridor from June 19.

MMOPL spokesperson said, “Commuters will be able to enjoy metro rides for mere Rs 5 between any two stations from 5.30am to 8am.”

This is an offer which MMOPL will introduce on a trial basis for a week. This first-of-its-kind initiative is aimed at encouraging people to travel during off-peak hours.

He said, “This initiative would be a boon for the non-peak hour commuters. Those who would be buying tokens between 5.30am and 8am, will be able to travel by metro at a flat rate of Rs 5. Similarly, smartcard users also would get this benefit. Only Rs 5 would be deducted from the stored value in their cards if they exit the metro between 5.30am and 8am.” More info
