All You Need To Know About The Chennai Metro Rail

Chennai Metro Train Information

You do not have to wait for long hours if your train gets delays because Chennai Metro has now got an app where all information about the train timings will be provided. From delays to arrivals. The CMRA or Chennai Metro Rail Apps is like a boon for the commuters.  This app will be covering all the stations and one will get the latest information about the selected train using the app. One can also send complains to the authorities of the metro if something goes wrong. There is also an option of recharging the smart card using the app.

The app earlier used to tell a number of things like daily train timetable in which one could know the distance covered by the train, the journey cost and names of the stations. Now it has become smarter as it has an added feature telling real-time information. Even after that, there were some complaints regarding the app. The problem with the app was that the commuters were informed a few minutes later the train used to arrive. This was an agitating problem but now it has been completely solved as the app has been thoroughly updated.

The thing that has given the most relief to the commuters is that the passengers do not have to stand in long ques to revive or recharge their metro cards. They can do it directly using the app. But they still have to swipe the card at the metro station to update their balance. They have to do it before they board the train. The latest update regarding the app is that it now has a planner. This informs about different stations and the route. Not only this, but people can also learn about near metro stations. Cab services, share autos and more related stuff.


The cab facilities that are provided near the metros have been proved to be of great use to people. According to a recent report, more than 47000 of people are using the cab services which are introduced near the Chennai metro stations in the city. The share auto services are one of the successful services launched. The fair is really less and more and more people are making use of these services. The problem of bargaining with the local autorickshaw was one of the most reported problems that came from the people’s side. With the introduction of the feeder services, it is now nearly gone.
