Bengaluru Metro keen on multi-modal transport integration

Bengaluru Metro is keen to adopt multi-modal integration, will offer a seamless service apart from being an efficient mass rapid transit system.

Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) Managing Director Anjum Parwez said, “At present, we are operating 56 km, but by June 2025, we will have a network of 175 km. By 2031, it is expected to touch 314 km. But one question remains, is the Metro a solution on its own and can it create the needed solution for the future of mobility?

“The answer is ‘no’, since the metro is a linear project and operates in an area with wider roads and more space. The focus then shifts to other modes of transport. In Bengaluru, we have BMTC, personal vehicles, two-wheelers and autos. The challenge is to find ways of integrating all these modes and providing a seamless experience to people.”

Speaking on ‘Future of Mobility’ at the 25th edition of the Bengaluru Tech Summit 2022, Parwez said, “One of the challenges is to increase the utilisation of public transport in Bengaluru.

“The other is ascertaining the time a person spends getting onto public transport. In the Metro, especially during peak hours, it takes at least 15 minutes in the queue. We introduced smart cards. Fifteen days ago, we introduced QR code app-based ticketing.”
