Noida residents demand better Metro feeder bus connectivity

Posted: May 25, 2019

The members of different residents’ welfare associations (RWAs) on Friday had a meeting with Sandhya Sharma, deputy general manager (operation) and Rajan Prakash, deputy general manager (finance) of Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) asking them to extend the services of Metro feeder buses and e-rickshaws till or closer to key residential pockets.

The members told the officials that presently they are not able to avail these facilities by NMRC as the buses and rickshaws don’t ply on roads closer to their residential sectors.

Because of this, said the residents, that they are forced to travel by their own cars.

KK Jain, president of Sector 34 RWA, said that it would be very convenient for residents from different sectors if the NMRC agrees to their demands. “The availability of feeder buses closer to the housing societies will make people give up their cars and use the public transport mostly,” he said.

Meanwhile, Sandhya Sharma has accepted the suggestions given by the representatives of RWAs and assured them that she will discuss it with officials to draw routes of feeder buses and e-rickshaws for these sectors. She informed them that it will be finalized soon, to facilitate the residents of Noida. 

NP Singh (president of Federation of Noida RWAs), AN Dhawan (secretary general), KK Jain (vice president), Main Pal Singh (vice president), Ravi Gupta and other office bearers of FONRWA were present at the meeting.
