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.
