namma metro: Bengaluru: Namma Metro’s operational timings to be extended from Thursday | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Close on the heels of the state government’s decision to scrap the night curfew, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) has decided to extend operational hours from Thursday (November 18).
“The first train departure from all the terminal stations (Nagasandra, Silk Institute, Kengeri and Byappanahalli) will be at 6am on weekdays (Monday to Saturday) and at 7am on Sundays,” said a press release from BMRCL.
“The last train departure from terminal stations will be at 11pm on all days. However, the last Metro train service at Nadaprabhu Kempegowda Station (Majestic) towards all four directions will be at 11:30pm on all days”, it said.
Currently Namma Metro operates trains from 6am to 10pm. On November 5, the state government withdrew the night curfew after the number of Covid cases reduced in the city.
TOI had carried a report titled ‘Curfew lifted, commuters want Namma Metro till midnight’ on November 7. The report highlighted the passenger’s demand to run Metro trains from 5am till midnight like pre-Covid times and also about insufficient BMTC services after 8pm.
Meanwhile, BMTC on Monday decided to run more night services. “BMTC is operating 70 night service buses on 48 routes from major bus stations to different parts of the city” , said a BMTC release.
