“Metro will surely change the way people travel in Jaipur” - See more at: https://www.trafficinfratech.com/?p=15494&preview=true#sthash.xTjtGxOP.dpufJMRCL insists on merit and transparency in its decision making. It has made an effective use of its website to make its decision-making most participative and transparent. In deciding the uniform of its staff, its fare structure, the use of its station premises for retail and such other issues, JMRC has been obtaining and factoring the opinion of its customers and the public at large.

What about inter-modal connectivity?

Inter-modal connectivity is a strong point of Jaipur Metro. While the metro line already commissioned connects

the Railway Junction and the Inter State Bus Terminus (called ‘Sindhi Camp’), our second metro line from Sitapura to Ambabari will also be connecting with the Jaipur International Airport. Skywalks and subways have been planned for easy inter-change on these points. BRTS and Metro are getting connected at Mansarovar, the originating Metro station. Besides, for the last mile connectivity, we are introducing a Metro feeder service, comprising e-rickshaws and 4-wheeled small vehicles. All feeder services shall start and terminate at Metro station only with stops enroute to convenient locations. The parking facilities have a total area of 24,000sqmt that can accommodate about 2500 vehicles.

Emergency Management

Jaipur Metro has taken various steps to ensure that at the time of emergency, all basic support systems are in place. A Standard Gauge self-propelled Rail-cum-Road Vehicle (RRV) and one four-wheeled Tower Wagon (SG self-propelled rail vehicle) are made available. For emergency services at the time of any accident/incident, JMRCL has signed a MoU with well-equipped Metro Manas Arogya Sadan Heart Care & Multispecialty Hospital, Mansarovar. A MoU has also been signed with NHRM for ‘108’ Ambulance services and a free accident insurance scheme for its passengers, including visitors (i.e., non-passengers visiting Metro Stations) has been put in place in association with New India Assurance Company Limited.


Fare Structure

The fares are lowest in comparison to any other mode of public transport in Jaipur city. The fare structure is easy to understand and use for a common man as the fare is charged by the number of stations travelled and in multiples of `5. Different fares have been fixed for peak and off-peak hours.
