BMRCL hopes to earn more with 6-car trains, new lines 13.4.2018 deccanherald.com
BMRCLs revenue has surpassed operational expenses over the last few months but officials say the surplus was not big considering the loans that they have to repay and hope that the introduction of six-car trains will lead them out of the woods. A senior official at the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) said that the fare revenue has seen a huge growth since the inauguration of Phase 1 in June last year. However, it was not up to their expectation. "The daily revenue has gone up from Rs 30-40 lakh to about Rs 95 lakh. The non-fare revenue has also seen a huge growth following the increase in the ridership. But this is not enough as the BMRCL has to pay Rs 40 crore towards the loans it has borrowed for Phase 1," the official said. BMRCL had expected that the average daily ridership of Namma Metro will cross 5 lakh after the full Phase 1 became operational. However, the average ridership stands at about 3.5 lakh. Even during exceptions, the numbers slightly crossed the 4 lakh mark. Officials ...

A massive road-cum-rail flyover at Silk Board junction, supporting metro lines and carrying road traffic at multiple levels, will come up in the next two and half years, if the plan chalked out by the BMRCL comes to fruition.
