Easy Connectivity Between Kochi Metro and Airport
Kochi metro is set to launch its feeder bus service between aluva metro station and Cochin International Airport on thursday. initially, vehicles could be in operation as a part of the electrical bus service named Pavan Doot. The frequency of buses will be extended within the coming days. The ticket rates will be introduced at the time of the launch. The customised e-bus will be stationed at the airport’s Terminal 1.
“The feeder service will substantially reduce the travelling value and time for kochiites. We are hoping the passengers will opt for Metro to reach the airport instead of relying on taxis and cars. Metro commuters can carry their baggage and board the Pavan Doot bus to reach the airport on time,” said Kochi Metro Rail Limited MD Alkesh Kumar Sharma. At present, a passenger can carry as much as 25kg of luggage at the metro. In case of extra luggage, they have to submit an application at the metro stations.
“KMRL opted for e-buses to reduce pollution. The timing and fare will be fixed to suit the commuters’ needs,” Sharma stated. Kochi Metro had signed an agreement earlier with KSRTC for plying e-buses as a part of its feeder service to the airport.
